3D Tracking Question - Turning off and on
by Hooban Meyer on Mar 26, 2014 at 12:23:59 am
Hi, I'm using the After Effects CC 3D tracker to place a 2D object in a dolly shot. I've been able to successfully track the shot, create a null and camera, and put my object in the world. It works well.
The trick is, I need the 2D object to eventually disconnect from the 3D track and float away independently. Does anyone know a good method of smoothly making this transition? If I split the clip and turn off the 3D for the second half, the 2D object resizes and positions to it's non-3D settings.
So to reword it, halfway through the clip I need to be able to preserve the size, tilt, rotation, and position, but have my 2D object break free of its 3D-tracked motion background.
I'm sure there's a simple way of doing this, but can't find anything out there.
