How to track wings in Maya
on Sep 21, 2008 at 2:06:08 am

Hi everyone,

I am a student working on a short fantasy film shot entirely on bluescreen about fairies. We built their wings in Maya and now are running into difficulties finding the right tracking information. We tried projecting the image into maya from a camera and tracking the wings that way- but it looks pretty bad. Basically we have to track the actor's shoulders so we can put the wings in behind them. I've tried several programs but none seem to be the right solution (or I'm just not using them correctly) - Mokey, Mocha, and Boujou. All our shots are locked off, but the actors move within the shots, rotating their shoulders and such. Another issue is when we can track them, their chests cave in but their backs spreads out, so the tracking information is inverted at times. Any suggestions?

I really appreciate it, sorry I am still learning.

Thanks for all your help,
