View Full Version : serious problem with matchmover

02 February 2003, 08:53 PM
hi, i'm having serious problems with matchmover.
I tracked a scene and it seems absolutely perfect until you have a look at the 3d viewport.

all markers seem to have the same Y value (there's just reaaallly realllly little differences)! Now, to make the markers fit onto the original footage again the camera stretches everything along the Y axis until it fits the 2d tracked points again.

When checking the tracked properties I found out it uses an aspect ratio >15.

I tried a lot of different camera settings, tried disabling all point relations that gave info about the Y axis etc. but it doesnt seem to have any effect.
Any ideas why this is happening?

Can you tell us more about the source material? Is it a nodal pan? Does the camera have zoom? ...

nope, the camera is following the guy walking down the rooftop. so matchmover should be able to track it without any other source pictures... and it actually does well, but it just has this strange scaling bug.
camera doesnt zoom either...
