Join Ian Robinson for an in-depth discussion in this video Tracking with mocha AE, part of Mograph Techniques: Retiming and Tracking Footage.
In order to build our graphics, we need to track elements in the scene.…That way, we can use that tracking data to determine where the graphics will appear.…Now, to start with our project I want to go ahead and focus on the 01 kick…composition. So if its not already open, go ahead and…double-click that in your Project panel. Let's click and drag on the current time…indicator to scrub through the scene. And as you can see, our DP has stuck his…hand out in front of the lens and that's kind of distracting in our project.…We'll deal with that a little later. Right now, I just want to focus on…actually tracking the ball moving through the scene.…
Now, in an instance like this when the ball has high amount of blur on it, you…couldn't really use a point tracker. There wouldn't be one single point to…track, and since there's so much blur happening, it would be really hard to…follow what's going on in the scene. This is the perfect kind of shot to use a…planar tracker. And of course, we have an excellent planar…
