Selecting 2D source point in 3D camera tracker
on Dec 2, 2018 at 4:47:56 am

Hi everybody!

I hope you can help me on something. Im using Camera 3D Tracker on a clip, I have analyse it and in the category ''show track point'' I selected 2d source because those point fit more with the mouvement of the clip. The probleme is that, compared to 3D solved, I can't right click on those point to create a null from them. The only option they give me when I right click on them is to delete them. I wanna know how to use the track point in 2d source mode!

Thanks in advance ☺

A basic question: why do you feel that you need 2D?

First of all thanks for your reply. And well, let me show you!

You see, I want to track the face of the actor. The 2D source (at the show track points property) gives me way better tracking point than the 3D Solved option for my purpose. If I really can't select points in the 2D source option, I just want to understand why, and why this option would be in the effect if I can't used it!




Thank you for your help! 😊

After Effects has a whole separate Face Tracker tool that would likely be better for this task.

Yes! I had found this tool a couples of days later, it really do the job efficiently ☺
But I still wonder why we can't select the point in camera tracker!! It doesn't make sens in my head
