the problem i have is that i cannot attach a text or element to a specific camera solve result point because they dont appear on screen
even when i select the effect on the effects panel, and even when i change all other parameters
and yet the puzzling thing is that i can still click on create camera and i see there is a camera created with all the positions in place,
and i can click on - process points - (unchecked box below 3d solve) and i can see that indeed the tracked points exist and they follow
the movement of the scene perfectly
so the question is why aren't the solve points appearing on screen even though it seems underneath all has worked correctly?
will try to explain better my problem
if i click on
Render Track Points
i can see there are great track points that follow all the movement perfectly,
and yet without checking that box no solve points appear, even when i select the effect on effects panel
or change any other parameter or do the advanced mode
i can still click on create camera etc, but i cannot attach a text etc to a specific solve point because no solve points appear
and yet as i say, if i click on the Render Track Points box i can see great tracking points all over the place following the action
so the fact that selecting Render Track Points on effects panel shows great perfect points following all , does that confirm that camera solve was successful?
i just cannot understand why i cannot see any solve points that i can interact with
i have tried to scale sizes all the way up, select effect on panel and hundred other things
thank you for any help
and the thing is that
the - create camera - button becomes active,
so i can create the solve camera
so how is it possible that i cannot see or interact with any solve points?
and yet i can click on create camera and a camera is created with all position keyframes in place
of course i make sure i select effect on effects panel and yet no points appear
if i click on - Render Track Points - then the points appear great, but i cannot interact with them
i move mouse over them and im not allowed to interact with them in any way, right mouse etc
doesnt do anything
Copuld be a graphics card issue. Check your settings and update your graphics driver. Also set the comp viewer to Fianl Quality to enforce software rendering and display. This may help...
only when i click on - render track points - i can see the solve points
but i move mouse over composition and over them and nothing happens,
i cannot interact with them, no right mouse options to attach something to them, etc
thank you Mylenium
quality of composition i have it already to maximum,
graphics card, mmm, that would be surprising as all other things work perfect,
but i will see if drivers can be updated
problem is now solved
Hello, Please explain how this problem was fixed. I have this same exact problem. I have an iMac with:
Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM
Graphics ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro 256 MB
Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 (11E53)
I have my comp settings on best.
I echo Scott's request: please tell people how you solved the problem so others can benefit from your knowledge.
Ok I finally got it working from the advice in my other thread. Apparently the camera tracker is a little buggy and you need to delete the clip and comp and start over sometimes. Also if a clip has a lot of camera shake it will mess it up too.
This was what helped me:
"Scott, I had the same issue yesterday . I have had lots of experience using (beta testing) the AE Tracker as well as Syntheyes and The Foundry Tracker. I tracked a clip and NO tracking points or targets were visible. I deleted the clip and the comp and created a new comp from the clip. It worked that time"
Im glad I could help with that suggestion.
Thank you! Apparently this is another case of After Effects Weirdness, and not something that can be anticipated. I'll keep that in mind.
