3d Camer tracker: Layer size must match composition and use default transform values.
Okay, this sounds simple, but i cant get it to work!!!!!!!!!!!
I create a new comp, and use 1366x745, wich i think was what i recorded and then resized it to in Camtasia. I then just drag 3d camera tracker onto it, an then POP goes the error!
What do i do?
btw, i have cs6
Make it easy on yourself, drag your clip down and drop it on the "Create" icon. It will generate a sequence with the EXACT specs of your clip. Then try tracking again.
UGgg, it worked, but it didnt track the railing that i wanted. All it tracks now is the background, and it looks dimented cus i want the subject to be on the railing, bu t it loks like they are connected to the background.
Link to the clip so we know what the heck you are referring to
Ok, i just rotoscoped the railing out and rendered and then tracked the new one, and it says analysis failed. i think that there is not enough points...
The 3D camera tracker is unpredictable. It tends to work best if the video is fairly sharp with clearly defined areas which represent movement of the environment. It seems to need this to calculate parallax and the camera field of view. If you have objects or people moving in the footage, it can through the camera tracker off. Experiment with the various settings on a small section of the video clip. Once you have settings that work, expand the time range you want to track and re-try it.
I have gotten very mixed results, and find that its simple controls and interface may limit some of its power. When it works, it usually works very well. When it doesn't, the results are useless. Keep trying and good luck.
I'm thinking of just rotoscoping the railing out and then motion tracking only the railing and add the person, then overlay it on the original footage.
What should I do if I render it into after effects from premiere? Having the same problem
Dude...you ROCK! I read a bunch of replies but nbo one pulled this out but you. Bravo my friend!
What lasvideo said. Simply drag&drop the footage onto the new comp icon at the bottom of the project window. Assuming your footage interpretation was correct, the comp will inherit the settings correctly.
Right click on the image and selectfit to composition. that should remedy the issue.
jajajaj just simple!, thanks trumpo.
Much appreciated Trump!!
How could I get it to work when working in premiere pro and doing "replace with after effects comp"?
Is your footage scaled in Premiere Pro? What are the layer properties like in After Effects?
Background of problem.
Just recently started to enjoy the camera tracking and motion tracking features in AE, and it seems pretty simple to do. However I have some drone footage shot in 4K that I dropped into PP timeline that was 1080 sequence, it all is fine in PP, but when I replace with AE comp through dynamic link im not able to see all the image, so scale back to 50% in AE bit then get the error about layer
Successful solutions :
My first attempts where in native 4K both PP and AE
this seemed to work fine, but as it takes soooo long to render, so I created a 1080 PP and then tried to replace with AE doing camera tracker and have the problem.
So do I transcode the footage to 1080 first?
Will moving the camera create what i need in relation to seeing more image?
Dont really want to render out to 4k when no one will watch it on that and the majority of other footage is all 1080, in the PP project.
Convert the 4K to HD1080 prior to tracking. You already know this will improve productivity - so, just do it.
Laziness on the Adobe engineers part.
