I want to put an image on the monitor of a couple of moving computers. This is what I am working on:

With the first computer all the way on the front, what I did was chose four corner and did some tracking. Now I am having problems with the computers in the back, I tried drawing a mask and tracking with the mask, it won't work because for the source, I cannot choose anything but Background clip or Clips and objects. What would you guys suggest? How can I add an image on the monitors of the computers that don't have four corners? what would be the easiest way?

Hi GetToTheTop,


have u tried to track the computers backwards? When the corners of the screens begin to disappear u have to set the keys for the hidden points by yourself, unfortunately.

I haven't used combustion for quite a while and i suggest to take a look on shake and its tracking abilities. ;)

how can I track the computers at the back when I can only choose four corner points?
I don't have shake, only combustion unfortunately,.

U don't need more than 4 corner points. U have to track all screens seperately. The good thing is, that the screens in the back are seen only for a few frames. So, there is not that much tracking involved.
