- MOTOR TIP: *Using Proxy Media
One major advantage of our planar tracker is that it is much less resolution dependant / sensitive.
In our experience working with 2K roto projects we have dropped the resolution to at least half res and still managed to get very good results.
So the thinking is rather than 2k files for tracking and basic roto’s, drop the resolution to a proxy res. We recommend testing the specific media to find the optimum proxy size.
Once tracked and achieving a good 90% roto, one can step up to Full res and finalise the project utilising the Proxy pull down (under View Controls) will create proxy media on playback. Personally on large productions I find it better to create and mange custom proxy media with 3rd party solutions.
NB!! When creating your own proxy media, first do a test to ensure the layers scale correctly, by setting up a trial project using proxy media.
- Close the project.
- Re-open and on opening re-select the media to be used (selecting Full Res media).
- Verify that the layers have scaled correctly.
