I am testing out the motion live plug in with the live face app for iphone X, but for some reason the expression mapping panel seems useless? When I open it i can adjust my characters face, allowing him a wholesome smile. As soon as I click preview or record however he goes back to having a mean old not smiley face. Trying to smile makes him look both evil and messed up. I am including a video so people can see. Any idea whats up?

The expression mapping is for when you actually smile, how much of an effect it will have.

I think what you want to do is set a default for your character that is more smiley as he looks kind of glum.

It would be best to do that in CC with a morph to make it permanent, but you can also set a Face Key before you start recording:

You can even use the same method to adjust any recordings you have already made.

thank you so much, that makes so much sense and it allows for some really beautiful expressions by setting it to frown but then smiling, gives him a bit of a sad smile, and vice versa. love it. thanks.
