Hey guys, every time I drag the effect over into my clip, it says: 3D Camera Tracker: Use only in Composition panel. I tried right clicking my clip and clicking camera tracker, and it still says it. Can someone please help me?
Select your clip in the project panel, right-click or choose from the file menu "create new composition from selection," then in the timeline that is created from your video clip select the video later and run the camera tracker.
these are AE basics. Please start here: How to add effects, motion graphics in After Effects | Adobe After Effects CC tutorials
Thank you so much, I never had to do that before. I'm so sorry. I am not new to After Effects.
"these are AE basics"
This is a glitch in AE.
This happens frequently after splitting a clip, and trimming a clip to composition work area.
Make sure to be extra condescending next time, it really helped so much.
It worked for a a second and then it happened again
It's a common glitch.
If you've just trimmed a clip or changed your composition work area, make sure to hit the 'n' key at the end of the part of the clip you're working in. Then try again.
I'm not sure what that Rick Gerard guy is on about, I've never had to jump through those hoops to do motion tracking before.
