Motion Tracking a bottle spin!
by alen vrecer on Jun 12, 2015 at 10:24:00 am
I am learning tracking and here is a task. How to put text on this rotating bottle. I tracked it in mocha nicely, but the problem is when bottle is rotated text is not deformed like it should be. I have examples below. Any advice. maybe should i do text rotating in cinema 4d and export alpha back in after effects?
Below are links.

I think you will need to use some sort of distort effect like CC Cylinder. You might also need to precomp your text first, mask in a precomp as the bottle turns to effect the final Cylinder effect.
If you know C4D, it might be easier to just apply your text to a cylinder there, copy the AE camera to C4D, then rotate the cylinder. Then the text will disappear as it turns. Then you could composite it all in AE.
