Tips: In order to put faces only on your wanted portion of the video, you can split your video into small clips first.

3 Save your video with changed face

Finally, hit Create to export your video with replaced faces. In the pop-up output window, you have a variety of options to save it. Popular formats like WMV, MOV, AVI, MKV, MPEG, MP4, etc. are available to pick up under the "Format" tab. This face replacer also supports uploading your masterpiece directly to YouTube to share with your friends or family members, as well as a message sent to Facebook or Twitter.

Aside from that, you may want to view it back on your game consoles, smart phones, then select the configured preset from the "Device" tab instead.

As you can see, it doesn't allow you to upload photos into the program. You can use some professional video editing software like After Effect, or Sony Veags Pro to make a head replacement in a video by any photo you like, but it's pretty complicated and asks professional skills, so this is the simplest way to change face in a video with Wondershare Filmora.

Bonus tips: The face replacement software also includes an Auto Scene Detection feature, which helps to split your video into different clips when the scene changes. This is hugely useful when you want to focus only on your wanted part quickly. To do this, just right click a clip in the left item tray, select "Scene Detection", and then hit "Detect" to let it complete the rest automatically.

I'd really like to know, because I have a couple of doozies lined up! Lol!
The only other way I can think of doing this is using free video software that handles Green Screen...(There are several), and in essence, the face you want to cover would be painted green, and the replacement face would be exposed while everything else would be green.
There doesn't seem to be a means of doing this in Filmora. You're stuck with the faces they provide.. Pretty lame IMO.. And I couldn't find any other free software that can do this aside from the expensive Adobe Premier with the addon After Effects.
Hey Gorilla. Have you found a way to do the face change in Filmora?? OR Do you know of a free program where it can be done (easily : ) )??
Tom did you ever find a way to do it?? Now that CNN has tortured some guy for the WWF smack down video, we should be calling on everyone who can to do something similar. If Filmora can't. Do you know of any other FREE program that could?? Thanks
I gave up, not sure if you can or not. I mostly use it to combine pictures and music.
Was looking to do this as well.. Can you move your Trump face to the same folder as the factory faces?
Didn't work for me. Plus you can't import the face you have to pick from one in the software. I wanted to put Trump's face over Popeyes when he beats up the fourty thieves, and call it trump vs ISIS. All well the world will have to try and get along with out my Master piece.
