Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the Perspective method, part of After Effects Guru: Tracking and Stabilizing Footage.
…Anytime you're dealing with an object moving in and…out, the camera has movement or things are moving closer and farther away from…the camera angle, the perspective angle may come in as a good fix.…In this particular scene,…let's take a look at the shot as our actor takes a seat.…He crosses the camera and then sits down to look at the screen.…Using the Warp Stabilizer VFX, we're able to fix some of that.…Now, if I take a look here at the track points,…what I want to be certain of is to minimize tracking our male actor.…
You'll notice that there are a few points on him and I can remove those.…In many ways, since he is in soft focus,…it's only when he starts to truly sit down that he begins to get tracked.…Remember, when you delete, make sure that the composition window is active so…those are the points that become picked up.…And, move your play head a few times.…And remove some of the extraneous tracking points for…any subject that's moving around a lot.…In this case, same thing here with her neck.…
I'll minimize that movement.…
