Applying track mask data to an object
on Feb 6, 2020 at 11:54:09 pm

Hi

I have a project where I have masked out a phone screen as someone is holding it. I have applied "Track Mask" and it has done a great job.

Now I have an object to insert into the screen (this is basically a screen replacement job) and since the mask is tracked so well, I was hoping I could use the data from that and apply it to the replacement screen so it also tracks with the phone movements.

I have tried copy/pasting to the object , and to a null with parenting, but it hasn't worked.

Does anyone know if there is a way to do this?

I'll be honest, I'm a little old school, can't say that I've used track mask before (I'm more of a mocha guys for that stuff).

What are the outputs of the tracked mask? Isn't there any transform information?
What/how are you linking the screen to? And why isn't it working? What's happening?

Maybe some screens with properties expanded?

I agree with Cassius here. If you’ve been able to get such a good track, it’ll be so much quicker to redo using the included Mocha AE and that provides coordinate data for screen replacements.

Thank you all for your help. I have indeed used Mocha and it has worked a treat :)
