Join Andy Needham for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding a placeholder solid to represent the ground plane, part of Creating a Show Open in After Effects and Cinema 4D.
…Having established the coordinate system, we can now add some proxy…geometry in the form of a solid to just test out the solve and the ground plane.…This will be just a useful object to line up our logo in Cinema 4D.…So I want to choose a area of the shot that has.…A relatively low error.…We're going to look at the graph view and…I just pressed U to reveal the key frame properties.…So if we just come down to the frame error average and…I'm looking for also a frame that has a lot of track points.…
Somewhere back here maybe.…Lets look at the error.…Yep, fairly low error around this section as well.…I'm going to just close the graph editor now…and press U on the keyboard to tidy things up.…So, we will create a solid by selecting some points…and I'm going to just kind of get a large average.…Once again, Shift+Click and drag.…And Cmd or Ctrl+Click and choose Create > Solid.…So a solid is created, and it's linked to our main controlling null.…
But we can also tweak the position…of the solid by revealing the rotation properties.…
