Tracking the scene

I have restarted Nuke and reloaded the Camera Track training clip so we can take a closer look at the first step in the process, setting the track features. So we will add a Tracker node, select the Read node, go to 3D tab and select CameraTracker. The first thing we want to do, before setting the tracking, is to set the Analysis Range. By default, it's going to track the entire length of the source clip and it really means it. If you have a 500 frame clip with a 100 frame timeline, it's going to track all 500 frames.

So if you don't want to track the entire clip, select Analysis Range, and then enter the start frame and the end frame which you want to analyze. We'll put that back to default. Now, let's take a look at the Tracking tab. The Tracking tab contains two parts; the Features and the Tracking. The Features control how many trackers are placed on the screen and their distribution. The Tracking section controls the mathematics used to analyze the tracks themselves.

So...
