Difficult Track
on May 18, 2013 at 7:27:16 pm

I am having a lot of tracking what seems like a very simply shot. I have this crane shot of a private jet and I've been tasked with tracking the wing so that I may place a logo on to it. Well this shot has turned into a nightmare. I've tracked it 17times, even manually tracked it and the logo will not stay put or the perspective of it will shit. and I just don't know what to do anymore.

Could someone please take a look at it and let me know what I'm doing wrong?

I used the Camera Tracker and took a reference from one of the tracking points in the wing's shadow. I was able to move the "logo" into position over the wing then mask out the edge as the cabin moves into frame.
