Match motion advice needed

Hi all
I am doing a comedic sketch where a superhero is holding a giant bag of money over his head. He wasn't able to keep his hands perfectly still so I need to map the movement of his hands to the giant bag
Any advice on how to do this would be greatly appreciated

Use the match move behavior. Apply the behavior to the bag of money and make sure the slip of the superhero is in the source well. Track the hand and you will be good. You should also move the bag of money's anchor point to where the had touches it.

Hello Steve,

If the match move does not work there is another trick I use in case I have to add keyframes manually, is to add keyframes in halves.

Meaning, if your timeline is 1 minute in length, I would add a keyframe at frame 1, then frame 30 and then frame 60. Take a look, then add keyframes in between those, 15, 45 and then take a look , then keep going in between.

First make sure to add the anchor point where the hands touch the money bag and in between as Stephan mentioned.

It takes some patience.

If you post the video we may be more of assistance.

Have a wonderful day! :)
