CameraTracker allows you to pull 3D motion tracks and match camera moves without leaving After Effects, and offers greater control over complex tasks compared to Adobe's built-in tracker. Learn how to use this advanced plugin to track and solve basic shots, refine a camera solve with garbage mattes, and place objects into shots to test your tracking data. Motion graphics pro Andy Needham also shows how to use the Track Finder tools to remove bad tracking data, and export data to CINEMA 4D for some really cool sample projects, including a 3D simulation and a 3D text treatment.
Hi. I'm Andy Needham and welcome to Up and Running with the Foundry's Camera Tracker for After Effects. In this course we'll take a look at the best practices for using the Camera Tracker in After Effects to track the camera motion in a video clip and solve a 3D representation of that camera. Once you have 3D camera data for a shot, you can have all sorts of fun composing objects into that shots 3D space. I'll start by showing you how to track and solve a basic shot by walking you through the Camera Tracker work flow.
Next we'll take a look at a technique through a finer camera solve using garbage mats to focus the Tracker on specific parts of a shot. Finally, we'll see how you can place objects into a shot to test the 3-D Tracking Solve. We'll be covering all these features plus plenty of other tools and techniques, like using the Track Finder tools to identify and remove bad tracking data. And exporting our 3D data to Cinema 4D, where you can design a 3D scene to composite into a shot. Now let's get started with Up and Running with the Foundry's Camera Tracker for After Effects.
