Hi, just trying to brush up on some things as i always forget when i have to jump back into mocha ae.
So i’m doing a few scenes with puzzle pieces, and i’m going to track stuff into them that will be like partial videos playing back. As you can see from the image, i have a track, which is rock solid. I duplicated that layer for an align to surface track as well, i forget if i’ll need that or not. I have a finger hold out, and i have the actual shape tracked. All of this work in mocha seems like it’s all good.
Now my first thought was i was would make a solid, same size as comp, and precomp it, yes? Then i would Create Tracking Data from my Aligned Surface Layer. That’s when this happens. And this happens all the time, and i forget what the reason is for why it completely jumps away from where you think it’s going. The other thing is that i can’t figure out what the collapse transformation block should be set to, when it’s off, the solid contained shows up, when it’s checked, it seems to disappear.
After I get the surface correct, I SHOULD just be able to drop what i want in the video comp and then apply my mocha puzzle shape mask to it, correct?
Is the tracking data always better off applied to a null? I feel like i’ve done that before and it’s still jumped away.
Sorry to be thick, I just always feel like i’m running into a new thing that i thought i was confident with every time i have to do it.
Also if there are any other approaches you all would take, i’m down to here them please!
