I did a little spec spot in my spare time. You can see it here:

I used Shake, PFTrack and C4D.

Feel free to comment or criticize if you're so moved!

That looks awesome dude. Did you use the shake motion blur to draw the line or is it 3D?

There are a couple places where the finger tracker pops, or the line disappears after drawing or something, but overall very smooth and well integrated.

Thanks Guys. It was fun to do.

@pgraham, I did experiment with using motion blur and a little feedback trail from Sapphire. This seemed to work well with the multiplane node using the 3D tracking path I created in PFTrack. But I had too hard a time getting a nice thin line and the feedback trail only shows on playback, so it gets pretty hard to create holdout mattes for foreground action. In the end I created a path in Cinema 4D and brought that in. I would love to go back and tweak everything. But as this was mostly a 'for-fun' project, it may have to wait for another break.

I'll keep you posted if I do another version.
