I’m doing my first 3D tracking in C4D, and I feel like I might have been a bit too ambitious for a first 3D track…
My video is a continuous shot that lasts 10 seconds long and in terms of what’s going on in the shot, you can divide it in 3 parts:
Part 1 : You see my feet walking on the sidewalk
Part 2 : I pan the camera up (from my feet) to the street in front of me
Part 3 : I pan the camera all the way to the right to show the other end of the street
Problem : None of my automatic or manual tracking efforts have worked.
Automatic tracking : The automatic tracking (800 points) seem to only start tracking at Part 3. Why? Also, every tracking point goes crazy between Part 2 and Part 3 because of a little bit of motion blur. Can I fix this manually? I’ve looked at so many tutorials, yet I can’t seem to find how to fix automated tracks. I try replacing them on each frame but their new positions don’t seem to save.
Manual tracking : I spent 2 hours creating manual tracking points that start and end at each parts of the video, giving a total of 42 perfectly and manually tracked points. Yet, when I run the 3D solver, it doesn’t create any Nulls! Why is that? Does it need more points, still? This results in me not being able to put a Planar Constraint tag on the Motion Tracker.
Any help/guidance would be extremely helpful.
Thank you so much!
