Change Eye Colour

Hello everybody, I'm not exactly sure if this is where I should post this, so move it to the right section if this is wrong, please.

I am wondering how I could make a persons eyes look white so it looks like they have no pupils in post. Any ideas on what I could do and have it look decent?

Thanks,
Cory Cone

Hi Cory! Welcome aboard DVInfo.net!

Depending on the amount of eye movement this is a very tricky
thing to do. You usually need to track the eyes (either manually
through keyframing or automatically with an expensive piece of
software) and then put a mask over the eye area.

How long is the sequence that needs replacing?

You might want to look at contact lenses as well. However, if you
do ONLY GET THEM FROM A LICENSED EYE DOCTOR!!!!!!

DO NOT FOOL AROUND WITH SOMEBODY'S EYES!!!!!

Hello Rob, it wouldn't be long probably less than a minute of actual time shown of the eyes.

I thought about contact lenses just wondered how I could do it through post.

I know how it can be done, but it is a very time consuming thing,
even for a minute. However I don't know how to easily explain it
to you. Perhaps someone has a tutorial on such a thing, I don't
know... sorry.
