Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video How targets can be used, part of After Effects Guru: Tracking and Stabilizing Footage.
…There are a lot of different ways that you can use these targets to…add elements into the scene.…All of them are just a right-click away.…When you right-click on that target, you'll note the pop-up menu.…For example, you can create a text layer and a 3D camera.…The text layer will position the text layer in 3D space, and…let it react to the camera that moves around it.…Remember, this is still just a 2D text layer, but…you can take advantage of After Effects' ability to work with 3D…text by changing your composition settings.…
I'll show you that in just a moment.…Next, you can create a solid in a camera, and…this is just what we did when we replaced the sign for our real estate shop.…A solid is just an empty layer, generally a color.…Remember, solids can hold things.…You could apply fills or generator effects.…You can use them as masks, or you could replace them with other layer content.…A solid is really just a placeholder layer, or an empty layer that's…colored to make it easier to see and position within the frame.…
