I’m fairly new to Nuke and tracking. I have taken a compositing class already and I’ve been compositing in After Effects for a couple years (Want to be a compositor once I graduate, currently at Full Sail).
I’m trying to get a better understanding of Nuke because it’s mainly used in film and such. Currently I want to get the hang of 3d tracking, but it’s giving me problems and I need it for a side project. I’ve been able to follow tutorials and class situations online, but when it comes to taking my own footage and doing it myself it doesn’t go so well.
Here is a jpeg from the sequence I’m working with as a test shot
Basically the camera is not on any form of tripod and it’s free moving. We put a couple of trackers on the wall because it’s a solid color and not much to track.
Basically I’m still getting a crap track. It gets some decent points and such, and I go through cleaning some of them up. A person walks by into the entrance, but I have him roto’d out so that he doesn’t mess with the track. I did line lens correction to straighten out the lines as well.
I’m not sure what I can do to make this work. I tracked it, roto’d him out, cleaned up points and lowered the error range. I have a couple similar shots and I’m getting pretty much the same results.
I also am having issues getting the point cloud to look like the scene, even after I define some Axis points on the same lines.
Really could use some help here if someone knows a little bit about this. Thanks!
