However after watching multiple tutorials and trying for days,
watch this one: 3D Camera Tracker in Adobe After Effects
when i select a set of 3 or more tracking points that seem to be wel placed, right click it and select: "create camera and text", I get my text and my camera and i can rotate and position the text however i like, but when i play my footage , the text just stays in the same place on the screen instead of sticking to the point I want it to stick to.
in the video we can't see your workflow. we just see a 3d text and a camera but not any of the process: right clicking on a target, create text etc. the 3d camera is already in the shot so you can right click->create text. try to work step by step like the workflow suggests and capture again and show it to us.
Ok i'll try! Thanks for the quick response!
Hmmm... unfortunatly the tutorial seems very alike with the ones i watched and it didn't fix it for me , I recorded some more footage, I hope this is more helpfull!
Edit: for some reason this isn't recorded, but i used right click > "create camera and text" to make the text appear.
exact numbers please
it looks like you are doing it right but your recording software does not record the windows so it's hard to tell. I am not sure how this could go wrong at this point. you have a setup over there that has a few shots with effects and track mattes (although 3D Camera tracker is supposed to ignore them and will give you a message). you should work per shot without any effects or anything to minimize the chance of something going wrong and because it's an efficient way to work. meaning each shot with it's 3d setup inside it's precomp. you can then edit them together they way you did. try this:
1. precomp your layer 8 - leave all attributes - this will make sure it's a fresh unaltered footage. you will have to trim your layers to not track all of it.
2. try again the same tracking and attaching a text process inside the precomp
if this does not work, could you upload the project with the footage?
Im using After Effects CC 2015.3 on windows 10,
I have 8 GB RAM, 6th Gen Intel Core 6400T processor,
and a Nvidia Geforce graphic card.
And thanks again for responding, Im going to try your instructions right now!
I started over with a fresh project, and now it seems to work fine, I think it was a problem with the luna matte layer. Thanks for all the help!
Great! I wonder what happened... but at least if forced you to work properly! each compositing shot in it's own comp and own mess.
