We have adjusted the screen animation to better match the footage of the PDA. Now since we have used motion tracking to move that screen around, we can use that data and apply it to another layer to make that move in conjunction with the screen. For example, with this project there is a render of a Wireframe ship, and we can bring in and make it look like it's a hologram floating above the PDA, so let's do that. We go to File > Import > File and retrieve the Shot4Ship animation. Now I want to bring in so it will look a little different.
