Join Andy Needham for an in-depth discussion in this video Solving camera data and refining the results, part of Creating a Show Open in After Effects and Cinema 4D.
…So our layers been tracked and we've removed points…in the sky that we know aren't any good.…And you might want to consider removing some…of these shorter ones, but we're going to…look at doing that with thresholds once we…refresh the solve and see what error we get.…But feel free to go through the shot and just have a look at points…that jump out to you that are definitely not going to help contribute to the solve.…So, what we'll do is we'll press solve camera and…we'll get an initial result and we'll go from there.…
So by solving the camera we're taking all these 2D tracks and turning them into a…3D representation of where the camera was when…it was used to film the actual footage.…So the camera tracker has solved our shot, and this error is pretty high.…It's 3.82 pixels.…And that is unacceptable for HD footage.…You want to get below one pixel for this kind of frame size.…With a larger frame size, you can get away with a higher error, but I…would say we definitely want to look at ways that we can get this down.…
