Hi, everybody! I’m new to this forum and in desperate need of your help.
I’m trying to do a screen replacement on a smartphone screen with Mocha AE. Got greenscreen footage of a phone with some tracking marks on it (same as my comp 25 fps, 1920x1080) and tracking works perfectly.
Back to AE, hitting “create track data”, clicking the cog on the desired track (values in Mocha get filled in/updated), BUT then it doesn’t work as supposed: I choose “Corner Pin” (tried with and without motion blur), Layer export to [Screen replacement], but all I get is 4 keyframes at the beginning, but no tracking.
I’ve tried different resolutions (though my comp is 1920x1080, the screen ratio of the smartphone screen is 2:3, so I tried using that too) - doesn’t matter though, since absolutely no tracking data is being handed over to the layer. Only 1 keyframe for each corner point, that’s it. There are several keyframes in the Mocha layer, but when copy/pasting it, they don’t line up (both the grid and surface in the Mocha window are perfect).
This ain’t my first time using Mocha AE, worked fine in previous projects. I’ve been looking at tutorials and several forums and can’t find a suitable solution. Similar issues, but they always got resolved with a change in resolution or they forgot to click on the cog or something. That’s not the case here…
My deepest apologies, if I have overlooked something simple, but as of now I’m at my wit’s end, desperate and frankly very frustrated!!!
I get it, I just like to double check because often I will think something is the same size and if I double check it is not. If you like you can email me the file and I can take a look. It’s probably something minor somewhere in the comp.
Is it perhaps a linked AE comp from Premiere? Sometimes I see issues there where the data is offset oddly.
I totally understand. It’s not a linked comp, it’s completely animated inside AE. Thanks for your offer, I’ll gladly forward the comp to you - will clean it up to only the necessary parts and will forward you a WeTransfer link, if that’s ok?
ALL of that being said, there’s something funny going on in this file. Even on a solid of the same size it isn’t posting correctly. And I can’t figure out why that is. I am going to do some more tests.
