hi, I want to make this vid of me growing up and I want to line up a bunch of faces of myself together but I want the face to match up perfectly just like the video of Casey Neistat's 30th birthday or those photos one photo a day for 6 years. They line it up perfectly. Anyone know her w they do that?

I use final cut pro

Well you probably have to brute force it. The FCP transform function allows you to move images around and scale them individually. Import all the images and add them in the sequence you want into a time line (drag them into a new project) Pick a reference point somewhere near the center of the screen (or someplace that looks good for you) and line the center of the nose for every photo to that point. Note the distance between the ears or eyes on a photo sized as you like and scale each photo to have matching ear to ear or eye to eye distances. Then your into fine adjustments to make it flow best for you. Perhaps some cropping.

Just try to find any program at store. For example, I used the "EveryDay" by Will Global. there you can centralize your face and line it up as it should
