Hi everyone... I've hit a brick wall with this one and can't figure it out myself.

I tracked some heli footage with Camera Tracker plugin in AFX. The footage is quite shaky but the tracking looks good enough.

The problem arises when I add Warp stabilizer. The footage gets stabilized but the 3D tracked layers look out of place in some areas. Is this a problem with Warp Stabilizer or am I doing something wrong?

I'd appreciate any help since I'm really stuck with this.

Thanks,
J.

You're trying to do two things at once when you should only be doing one thing at once.

I personally would stabilize the footage first, render it to a lossless codec, reimport it, and THEN do the motion track.

My tracked footage is inside a composition with some 3D layers. I added warp stabilizer to the composition, not original footage. I'm afraid that if I track stabilized footage, I won't get correct result...

Apparently then, you have a choice to make: stabilize first and THEN track, or continue to work as you are and settle for a lousy track.
