    Any tricks to smooth skin with DS native effects?

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any solutions for smoothing skin with DS native effects? I have a subject who is older and could use a little smoothing/blurring on their skin. I know Boris has a plug in for this, but I don't have it. I know DS has so very many texture effects, but I can't seem to find one ideally suited to the task. Have any of you guys done anything like this with native DS effects? Any suggestions for effects to try?

    It is a job of creating a mask, tracking the mask and using a combination of bluring and very selective contrast reduction in the color corrector.

    All native DS tools.  Can get complex and tedious depending on the shot or shots.

    It's very easy to work on individual channels in DS in each tool. WHen doing beauty work some RGB channnels will need more attention than others.

    What the others said, very time consuming process unfortunately. I would look at picking up a copy of Beauty Box. Best $250 plugin out there for this kind of task.
