I recently started using these tools and they are AMAZING so far! I wanted to try something but I am not sure if I am going about it the right way. Some direction or even a link to a good tutorial would be greatly appreciated. I have searched for videos but they all seem to fall short of what I am trying to do (probably because it is super simple).
I captured a shot on the disc golf course of one of my buddies throwing a disc 145+ feet for a birdie. What I want to do is put a light trail that follows the disc all the way through to the basket.
Here is what I have done so far.
I opened the footage up in Mocha Pro and tracked the disc all the way through the shot. I created a new solid and dropped Trapcode Particular on it and created my null, and a new light and named it Emitter, then created an expression, pick whipping the emitter to the null.
This is where I get stuck. I want the emitter to follow the track path of the mask I created in Mocha Pro.
Am I even approaching this from the right direction? Is there an easier way to pull off the same effect?
Thank you for you feedback.
