I have a difficult stereoscopic 360 shot that needs a remove as the camera moves in the z-plane. Aside from the question of getting the stereo to sit properly, the shot itself has a lot of moving texture and no obvious planes. Here’s what it looks like as an equirectangular file:
Here’s how it looks playing back in 360:
At the end of the shot, the filmmaker is hiding behind a tree (he had to hide there because the cable-cam rig wasn’t working when he hid out of camera range.)
We’d like to remove him from the shot and I’ve set up a remove that looks like this:
I’m tracking backwards from the end of the shot to the beginning. While I’m able to track my remove layer shapes just fine, I can’t figure out how to get a stable background track.
I’ve tried various part of the frame, using tree trunks etc., but nothing is working. My background track doesn’t hold no matter what I try.
How would you solve a shot like this? Is this even something Mocha can do, or would I be better off trying this in a feature tracker?
Thanks for your help!
