Advice for mapping a 2d texture to a surface?
on Feb 20, 2018 at 10:41:52 pm

Hi,
I'm making a short video for which I filmed a static shot of a surface and I was hoping to map a 2D texture to a particular spot (just right to the comp). Unfortunately I'm having trouble as no matter what I do the texture doesn't line up with the surface and the angle looks off. I'm fairly new to AE and the tracker doesn't seem to be recognizing the right surface so I've been confined to using the (now obsolete) Basic 3D effect. You can see I have a rectangular placeholder/marker on the surface to make it easier. I'm using AE CC 2017.

Any help would be appreciated as I just can't seem to map the comp to the surface without it looking phony or like it's "hovering".
Thanks,
Dan.

If the shot is static, a tracker won't help.

Try the Corner Pin or CC Power Pin effects.

Seems like a bad track...Your going to spend all this time to put something in the shot that will be too dark to see anyways.
