well it may sound easy to do but when there is a picture of a mountain or an ground that isn't straight how can i put an object into that picture so that it seams as if it was standing For example on a hillside?

the object could be a cylinder for example, which could be used as a round tower

Romeo,

I have a tutorial on this

but as you said it is on a flat surface. If I understand what you are saying then you would need to rotate the assets in Cinema to accommodate the hill. After that I think that it becomes a compositing issue to make it look ok at the base?
Hope that helps.

As far as I see is the Only thing Syntheyes does setting those tracking points Isn't there a way that i could do that with after effects?
