Hey Guys!

So I have a quick question and need some direction...

I am in the process of teaching myself Maya and wanted to know if there are any tutorials out there that cover creating face sets for the replacement face method of Stop Motion. So basically I want model my characters in Maya and once they are modeled I want to create masks for facial expressions.

I am a bit stuck on how to create masks from my modeled character and I am especially worried that these masks will not fit perfectly onto the characters core head piece. 

I hope there is some help out there for me!

I haven't ventured of the site's main page into the forums for a while, so I hope this isn't too late for you. Here are some videos to look at. I'm not entirely sure they show you exactly how to do what you want, but it might give you (or anyone wanting to try this) a starting point.
