    3D tracking camera problem


      Whenever I track a camera and create a new solid or text, the solid doesn't follow the tracked point, is there any solution to this or am I doing it wrong? Here's a video to show what I mean.

          Try to enter into the Advanced mode and activate Detailed Analysis before creating the solid/text. Anyway, depending on what you are going to do, it looks like you can use the 2D tracker instead of the camera tracker.

            It looks like you are trying to camera track game capture footage. The problem with that is that the perspective is not real and that it is very unlikely that you will get a good camera track.


            Also, it looked like there was a cut in the footage that is camera tracked. You can't do that. One shot per camera track. Anything else will completely foul up the tracking calculations.


            So to summarize, you can only get a good camera track from footage that was shot with a real camera and there can be no edits in the footage you track. You set the in and out point for the camera track, track exactly the frames you need to track, then set an origin and ground plane then set a reference solid, text or null and create the camera. That is the limit of things you can do with AE's Track Camera feature.

              Well, As you can see in the timeline the composition he is trying to track is a different one as the clip we see in the cut you mentioned.

              Plus the camera tracking camera feature is calculating the points properly, so there is no aparent problem in the process. The problem of eduardom96466291 is that the solid he creates doesn't follow the points movement. I'm experiencing the same problem btw
