Garmin advert. Motion tracking and random number generation.
on Jul 14, 2012 at 2:26:11 pm

Hi im looking for some help with a technique in AE, I am looking to motion track some changing data such as heart rate and speed onto an athlete that I am making a promotional video for. I have a bit of experience in AE such as basic motion tracking a point however I feel this may be a bit harder.

This video illustrates quite nicely what I am trying to achieve:







I am aware that part of the video is using 3d match moving techniques, I'm not so interested in that, I am interested in the bits showing the heartbeat etc, how would you achieve this? Make a precomp with expression driven text and then just pick whip it to a tracked null object? What sort of expression would you use, a wiggle with a fixed parameter?

I have tried looking into tutorials online nut I can only find ironman HUD's! Would would you search for to find tutorials that could help with this?

Cheers
Paddy

What you are looking at there is fairly basic motion graphics - I recommend the excellent book:

And look at any number of Andrew Kramer tutorials:
