    Tracking an Video/Image to a TV

    Zonama

      Hey, i wanna track a Video to a TV. I don't think, that this will be very hard, maybe much work, but nothing Special. But i would like to make it something special, because it would be great, to round off the corners of the Videos, to stretch it in a perfect way to the TV. Do you know any effect/Plugin or Way to do this?@Unbenannt.jpgRoei TzorefAfter EffectsDeutsche Foren@

          if you mean you are looking for an effect that will warp the layer, you have 2d warp effects in Ae like mesh warp and bezier warp. look under distort in effects for something that will suit your needs.

           

          of course you do have to track it first and composite it in the right way. this reminds me of a tutorial with a TV too by our community's very own, very long time contributor, and among other things - a top notch vfx artist Rick Gerard. have a look-see:

            Too bad the set has color bars on it.  A lot of TV's go to a blue screen if there's no video input, which would have been a lot better. 

             

            You could have animated a mask -- the tough part of this effect shot, incidentally -- and used the same animated mask to cut a hole where the new video would go.   On a duplicated layer,you could have inverted the animated mask, removied the color and played with the blend modes to create dead-solid-perfect moving glares on the screen that inevitably happen when you move a camera on glass surface.
