I have a shot where multiple (lets say 6) tracking markers need to be removed (all on one plane).
Creating one layer for tracking the plane (Layer 1)
creating another layer with 6 shapes circling the tracking markers (this layer is on top in hierarchy) (Layer 2)
creating a clean plate on frame 0 (actually I´d have to create it at frame 28 because object moves closer to cam)
retouching all markers within the one clean plate
enabling “Use Cleanplates Exclusively”
hit “calculate” button
For some reason not every marker is removed at once. Sometimes even no marker at all. It´s not really comprehensible to me and feels very buggy.
Am I doing something wrong?
I also tried first creating a large shape for (Layer 2) and then adding additional shaped around the tracking markers on layer 2 like here:
Mocha Pro Tutorial - How To Remove Tracking Markers From Your Footage - YouTube
Unfortunately I can´t post the shot due to client´s NDA.
Also it seems to be similar to this case which didn´t offer a solution:
We just updated our mocha pro, and we have a project which requires cleanup trough setting up Photoshop clean plate.
The first couple of markers(used for tracking) work fine to be removed, but once we are getting to a more than three number per scene …the removals already completed begin to randomly unprocess frames that were cleaned, and you clean one, another track does the same thing.
We have a maxed out core 12 mac, and we gave mocha plenty of memory from settings.
Using Mocha Pro via AfterEffects CS6. Mocha Version 5.5.2. build 13566
Hopefully someone can help! Seems like a very strange behavior.
Take a look at your background track with the surface and grid tool turned on. Does that track cover one plane? Does the track stick to the plane perfectly?
If you’re removing over multiple planar surfaces, you need multiple tracks, and they must be rock solid to remove the objects.
all the tracking markers are only on one planar surface.
So I only tracked one plane. Surface/grid aligns perfectly.
Can you privately email me a screen shot so you’re not sharing it publicly? Or relink the clip to a blurry clip of the same project in an email? I am going to have a hard time diagnosing what you did incorrectly without seeing it. Alternately, you can email me your teamviewer information and I can remote in and show you.
