Surface moves in Mocha CS5


#1

hi,
I’m having trouble, trying to do a screen replacement, i’m tracking backwards from the end of the clip and i clicked on surface, lined it up on the screen…and track frame by frame backwards…but when i scrub forward to see how it’s sticking…the surface box moves, doesn’t stick where i had placed it, don’t know what i’m doing wrong. I did a screen capture.

Hi Johnny,

If the surface tool is not moving properly, it means the track is off. You may want to check out our getting started videos to find out a bit more on what to look for when tracking and how to track optimally: http://www.imagineersystems.com/mocha_Fundamentals

Try adjusting the areas you are tracking. Make sure you are avoiding reflection in the screen, those will throw your track off.

I can’t see your screenshot, the link is broken.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Cheers,
Mary
