Match Moving Green Screen
on May 25, 2010 at 12:54:00 am

Hey guys, Need some advice. A client shot a Music video on a green screen, and the camera is moving very dramatically, Is there a way to match the camera movement using only after effects? I've seen Boju the match moving tracking software but that can cost up to 1,000$ money i don't have. Whats the best way to tackle this? Below is a link to one of the clips that i need to "try" and match move on.

If not Boujou, check out Syntheyes.

I'm sorry that you don't have a lot of cash to toss around for this, but if you want to be done with the project before the close of the decade, you need matchmove software.

Ain't no cheap way around this, I'm afraid.

PFHoe is inexpensive. There's a link to a tutorial about PFHoe and After Effects toward the end of this page.

IMPORTANT.... if the greenscreen didn't have tracking markers on it for the software to track, you will be wasting every single dollar you spend.

OK OK, I just saw you had a link to some sample footage. The greenscreen has markers, so the investment will not be a bust!!

Sorry, but better safe than sorry. Just tryin' to help a fellow COW out.
