This is the 3rd project I’m trying to do a very simple track, and Mocha isn’t performing the way I expect.
The clip is a hand moving past a sewing needle. I want the emitter to follow the hand moving past the needle, which I will then use in Particle Illusion to emit some blood at the point of the track. (yeah, I know… gross… but it’s an R&D thing for proof-of-concept).
- I add the Particle Illusion effect
- I set it to world emitter (I tried this with "effect emitter but had equally poor results) where it tracked the search are but my center tracking data didn’t “stock”
- Launch Mocha tracking.
- Most of it tracked OK but it stopped towards the end. I manually adjusted the track.
- Although the search-are adjustments “stick”, the world-center doesn’t move with it. If I manually move the world-center, it messes up the rest of the results since it appears the center is relative to the search area and the manual adjustments aren’t being saved as keyframe-specific.
Here’s a very short video (no narration or music this time) showing my experience. Would appreciate any guidance on how to get this working right.
I used to be able to make manual adjustments without any difficulties, but things not to be working recently with even the simplest of tweaks like this. HELP?!
