on the original post above, note that the text layer is inserting at a scale proprty of nearly 4000.
that certainly accounts for throwing the text box way off kilter.
however, no matter what i try, i can't seem to get the 3d cam tracker to insert text at 100%
any ideas on how to change that default?
Don't worry about the scale. Text can be any scale. I'd set up your character palette using a very large font, center the paragraph settings, then adjust the baseline to move the visible anchor point of your text to the center. Now delete the text layer and try adding Text and Camera again from your track.
BTW, the scale is dependant on the solution of your track. AE is making the best guess at camera position and movement.
thanks for the post. very helpful.
I put up this very quick video tutorial showing how I do it in another thread. This should help.
Cool, thanks Rick!
the title graphics you inserted from time to time were also very helpful. thanks so much for taking the time to put this together!
