Basic workflow video?

Is there a video that goes step by step through a basic roto track with Motor? Just something basic like using the tracker to roto out a window or something like that. I see lots of gui and preference videos but nothing that shows a simple roto start to finish.

A good basic roto example can be found on the existing monet page, Boris FX | Creative Tools for Editing, Visual Effects, and Motion Graphics (http://www.imagineersystems.com/products/monet/http://www.imagineersystems.com/products/monet/)

This unique planar tracker bridges the gap between traditional 2D point trackers and 3D trackers, giving it the nickname ‘2.5D tracker’, to give you a better and faster way to generate 2D tracks

I’d really like to see a specific video tutorial for motor, even if it is from one of the other beta testers!

hey jay

I’ve had a good play around with motor today - actually found the time to get into its nuances… I was just about to post my experience, when my email alerted me of your reply…

It’s good to know that replies are quick on this forum.

yes, i’ve worked through those videos - had to download them, as they didn’t seem to work in the browser! (Safari - Version 2.0.4)

I was refering to a video that took you step by step through the whole process, but i see the advantages of breaking it down.

I would like to see a video about getting the shapes / tracking data out of motor and into other apps - Shake, for example… just to give a more complete overview of the motor workflow…

Did you work through the Motor tutorials on: Boris FX | Videos ?

I too would like to see a video on how to properly bring data from Motor into Combustion.

We are currently busy with these recordings, and updating to Motor 1.1.3 due to be released soon.

FYI - basic outline (Combustion)*

  • Export to Combustion Gmask file from Motor
  • Combustion - Add a Mask oprator (any mask)
  • Mask Controls / Settings / Mask Setup / Import…
