I want to track a a plane (something like this image). For example: stick it to a hand, then add a 3D object which would be "attached" to the hand, in AE.
I've made a simple animation of the picture slowly moving and rotating in 3D space on a black background, so I can experiment with it:
I've tried a bunch of different things in AE, but couldn't get what I wanted - a null object that not only moves, but also rotates just like the plane.
I came to conclusion that tracking an object's Z movement and 3D rotation is simply too much for AE or Mocha (as it only tracks in 2D).
I searched for other software or tutorials, but all I can find is a full 3D camera position tracking (with AE, Boujou etc) and it's not what I want.
Does anyone know what software is able to do it (and export the data to eg. a null object in AE). Or maybe there is actually a way to do it only in AE?
