Now that After Effects has tracked this scene and come up with a lot of track…points, your job is to find at least three of these points that define a plane…that you would like to put a new layer upon.…This building is obviously pretty simple, but even things like this building off…to the side--I'll deselect the effect right now, so you can see it unencumbered--…has lots of faceted faces to it, so you can go ahead and apply something to that…surface or this surface, et cetera.…Anyway I'll select the effect again, and just to make it obvious, we'll work with…this building for starters.…
As I drag my cursor between points, you'll see that After Effects is…automatically forming a faint white triangle of the three points I am in between.…It also is driving a red bull's-eye target that's on the same plane as that…triangle, and this can give you an early clue as to whether or not you have…selected three good points.…For example, if I go down here and select some points that include points on this…building and points in this other building at front, I get a very skewed target…
