I've spent a couple hours tracking the motion a of a video clip so I could steady it manually (using a seperate compositing software):
-pick a spot in the video to track
-run the tracker
-use the keyframe path created to see where the path needs to be smoothed out in order to guide me in setting keyframes for offsetting and scaling the footage.
-end result looks pretty good for doing it manually.
I know I can set up a simple, flat model, past a movie as a decal onto it and use that as a layer in compositing within A:M, using an isometric camera.
Thus I can use A:M to manually track motion of footage.
What I'm wondering is if someone wouldn't mind writing a plugin for A:M which automates the process of tracking a target detail area of live action footage. Then the plugin could generate a dynamic path which updates each time the tracking function is run.
If anyone is interested, please say so. In that case I'll go into more detail regarding how this thing should function.
