Can anybody recommend a good tutorial for sticking text to a moving object in AfterEffects? I prefer to check here than to try to google something.

Thanks!

You're talkin' Motion Tracking. AE has three ways to do it, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.

There's AE's old standby point motion tracker, there's planar tracking with Mocha AE and there's the 3D tracker which is intended to be used for text, but can be used for other stuff, too.

Each one works differently and requires a little study to use. The one you select depends on the nature of the shot.... and that we don't know.

[Dave LaRonde] "There's AE's old standby point motion tracker, "

What I'd like to do is add some text to a box that turns toward my camera for a few seconds then stops. It's not to complicated and I suspect that AE's point motion tracker will suit my needs, so I guess that's what my question is. Do you know of a good tutorial for motion point tracking?
