When I drop my vertical clip into a new comp it creates the appropriate comp size for me to be able to experimentwith basic motion tracking, however, when I try to resize or rotate the comp I loose the tracking. Is there a way to change the original video to register with AE so that I can track and edit it vertically? It was shot on a cell phone, by the way.
The attached photo is the only way I am able to track. Any comp rotating or resizing loses the the track. Any help would be great. Thanks.
Go to the start of the track. Make a null object. Apply the track to the null. Rotate the clip. Position the clip to its starting position. Scale the clip to taste. Parent the clip to the null.
Then go do some homework:
What are you trying to do with the motion tracking? Why not track it in that comp then precompose that comp to flip it when you need it to be upright?
