You can use the Patch Editor to bind the movement of a scene object to a face tracker, so the object moves with the face.

Moving objects

To try this out:

  1. Add a face tracker to your project.
  2. Drag the face tracker into the Patch Editor to create a patch.
  3. Select an object in the Scene panel.
  4. In the Inspector, click the arrow next to Rotation to create a patch.

Connect the Rotation port on the face tracker patch to the input port in the patch representing the object’s Rotation property.

You could use the 3D Position port in the face tracker patch instead. Connect it to a patch representing the Position property of an object, to change it’s position without rotating the object.
