Join Lee Lanier for an in-depth discussion in this video Utilizing corner pin tracking, part of VFX Techniques: Crowd Replication with After Effects.
We're going to continue to reuse some of our Tracking Data and apply it to new layers.…We're also going to move on to a brand-new style of tracking called Corner Pin Tracking.…Corner Pin Tracking is ideal for tracking the corners of anything that's rectangular or square.…To apply that we're going to create a floating projection screen above this man's head as…if it's a futuristic projection system.…So I'll start by importing a brand-new render, File, Import, File, go to the Renders Folder,…to the Screen Folder, and open the first frame. I'll drop the screen on top, and there it is.…
Where there is a green rectangle that is rendered in Maya, it represents where the screen should go.…Now because the Maya camera was approximated, we have that same issue once again with a little bit of drift.…So let's apply a tracker first, and we'll deal with that drift in a second.…Some terms, which we are going to reuse, we'll use the right one once again over here on the stand.…So I'm going to hide the panels for now, and then move the Anchor Point of the screen.…
