How to move each of the 4 corners of a video separately?
on Dec 12, 2017 at 9:40:48 pm

I am trying to put my video into a shot that has a computer in it. I would normally just track this with perspective corner pin but only 3 corners of the computer are on the screen so i can't get it to work.

I have tracked the video to the computer movement but cant get the video angled right on the monitor in this shot. Is there a way to just like shift click and move the 4 corners of my video to match the monitor on the computer? Everything will be down after that since its already tracked.

How 'bout the plain-old Corer Pin effect?

And unless you're running the new AE CC 2018 (which is a bad idea), you could use Mocha for the job, too.

im tracking it fine, i can't get my video to fit in the odd shape of the computer monitor in my movie. I need a way to just click the four corners to the computer monitor separately.

You can click your corners with the corner pin effect. If you have only three corners visible at all times you'll need to guesstimate the last corner or use Mocha.
