Add scale to tracked layer
on May 2, 2017 at 9:51:50 am


I have tracked some footage off a phone screen so that i can composite some new animated footage on the phone. Now the track is fine but when i apply the tracking data to the new footage (corner pin) i see a small edge on the outside.

This is because the footage is scaled (corner pinned) to fit the motion of the phone. What i want to do is scale the entire footage just a bit. Is there a way to add a overall scale so that i don't have to scale every single tracked keyframe?

Hope someone can help me?!

If your corner pin plugin doesn't already have a scale property you're doing this wrong. Anyway... you can copy paste each pin data do one of 4 nulls. Then re-link with expressions the pins to the nulls, now you can adjust with finer control, either by scalling it all with a centered null, or nudging the nulls into place, or changing the anchor points. You'll have to see what's best and what won't work .
