Eyes follow cursor

Post by capellan » Wed Mar 20, 2019 1:51 am

Hi All,

Recently, Klaus asked for a stack
that shows two eyes following the
cursor. Check this sample stack.

Surely you could find a simpler
and faster way to do the same.

In this sample stack, you could
make invisible both red marks.

You are welcome! :)

By the way, you could set the line weight
of both red marks to zero, instead of
making them invisible.

Using a circle for setting the angle was
needed, although would be clearer to
use a single line with just two coordinates...
but lines do not have an angle property
so it would require a few more calculations
to set the correct line length for each angle.

Check this new version 03 that shows eyes
that track the mouse independently.

Hi Al,

yep, I already "pimped" your first version to create real "cross-eyes" like obviously in your second version. :D


Best

Yes, but did you also make it so if you move the cursor across the middle of an eye, the pupil follows it there? :twisted:

Does anyone want to post an enhanced version
using eyes and photos from real subjects? :D
