Multiple Tracking Points for Panning/Tilting Shots?
on Nov 18, 2010 at 5:56:49 pm

Hello,

Does Motion support use of multiple tracking points for panning/tilting clips, in which the tracking point in the first frame is not visible in the last frame of the clip (the second or third tracking point would be visible in the last frame)?

I hope I'm asking clearly. What I'm talking about is demonstrated in the first 1/3rd of an After Effects tutorial here. http://library.creativecow.net/articles/larsen_carl/analyzing_motion/video-...

(If anyone can tell me how to put a website page link within a word of a post, please tell me.)

Motion supports multiple tracking points or tracking content that goes off the screen. Check out this link to my Apple Motion tutorial on tracking content that goes off the screen. Hope this helps and best of luck.

AE? Superwhite?

Stephen Smith,

Simple and well thought out approach to this "moving through time" effect.

Would you say this effect is easier/faster to do in Motion vs. After Effects?

(I've not read your bio, but I assume you are an AE pro as well).

Also, do you recommend taking out superwhite of a clip (maybe by adjusting opacity against a black slug) in FCP and rendering and reimporting the clip first, before exporting to Motion?

Some say Motion preserves super-white in 16 or 32 bit mode, but that's not what the scopes are showing -- superwhite is clipped.

Thanks,

Chris

Chris,
Your are right, I use AE as well. I think Motion and AE will both take the same amount of time. The only advantage I can think of with Motion is the real time capabilities, but if you do that movement through time look where you have a lot of layers and a lot of masks it won't play in real time once you get heavy into it. Hope this helps and best of luck.
