I was wondering if someone could tell me how I go about switching positions of my face in visionlab? What I'm trying to do is copy, say, my mouth, and moving it higher, over my nose, so it looks real distorted, and then even apply some grading. I did the position switching before, but can't remember how ... if I use matt, key, or grading.

Duplicate the layer, draw a mask around the mouth, I think you'll have to invert it so the masked area is retained and everything else is removed, then reposition and re-size it as you see fit. Should do the trick.

Should I use garbage matte to do it? And can I resize it?

I think for that you will want to use a mask, but maybe its a garbage matte. I can't recall of the top of my head; one of them animates with the footage, and the other is fixed, but I don't remember without looking which is which. Check the manual.

The garbage matte moves with the clip that you place it on so if you use it on the mouth clip and need to move the canvas to fit the bottom clip, it'll move right along with it.
