I am trying to do a 3d track right now in Maya Live. I am using the 35mm Full Apeture filmback. My image plane, however, is not projecting my image jpg sequence, I just get the "maya live slate" . It tells me that the device aspect ratio does not match up with the image aspect ratio. Is there a way around this, or to ignore this?
if anybody else ever runs into this problem, here is the solution. The images I was working with were very large plates (2k). in order to view the images on your image plane you will need to create a proxy version. Less than 1 meg large I would say. Then you'll be good to go.
To create a proxy I used photoshop to create an action of image resizing, then allpied it to every frame in the sequence.
