Motion path on recorded footage
on May 7, 2020 at 7:12:43 pm

Hi, fairly new to this but I have some footage of a model train it comes in frame from the right then corners to head towards camera. I want to add steam to this which looks great with particular but I need to get the motion path to turn and head towards camera. I understand that creating a 3D null layer and drawing the path but the footage is 2D so I have no way to “follow the track” the train is on. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Try the 3D camera tracker:

Thank you. I’ll have a look at that tomorrow.
