CreativeCOW presents 3D Camera Tracking in After Effects Part TWO -- Adobe After Effects Tutorial


CreativeCOW.net. All rights reserved.


In this tutorial, Kevin P McAuliffe shows you, much like in the first tutorial, the ins and outs of the 3D Camera Tracker effect, but in this tutorial, he's using footage shot with an iPhone, as well as the underutilized Rotobrush tool, as well as a cool technique to make the graffiti blend into the background. This tutorial is more of what you would run into in an edit suite, with footage shot by an amateur videographer or DOP.

The tutorial is great, the only problem is that to really get a solid track, you need to use footage not shot using a CMOS sensor, which is harder to do now that almost all video cameras have CMOS sensors.

Because of the 'rolling shutter' this track is not rock solid. You can see the text jump a little.

Hopefully, technology will get better and rolling shutter will disappear from cameras and we'll be able to get solid tracks off of video footage once again.

With careful consideration and shooting technique, you can minimize the rolling shutter effects and get a decent track.

Just some thoughts.

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

What Are Adobe Motion Graphics Templates?

A Motion Graphics Template, referred to as a MOGRT, is an animated sequence that is self-contained and can be used in Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Premiere Rush and Adobe After Effects, combining graphics, text, audio and video files, as well as vector or still images (including logos), to create a still or animation that can then be customized by the MOGRT user. The result is a dynamic creative tool that provides design freedom and is consistent to its users across apps and devices. Reuse, share, and even sell them!
