Hello there, my first post.
Enjoying Mocha 2021 8.0.1 very much. So what I am trying to do is tracking and stabilizing complex city scenes where the camera is placed looking forward from a moving vehicle. The scenes are long so the references I can use to track will change along the scene. I don’t see an object for the whole scene. What I can use is, a building far away, then another one, then another one. The only way that I found is to cut the scene, track and stabilize the different sections of the scene, then try to make them match correcting the deformation with a corner pin tool. Not too happy about that. So my questions are:
1- Is there a way to track first one object with one shape, then add another shape further on and let go of the first one as the object that was tracked disappear from the scene?
2- I need the horizon to be very stable, and I need to place objects at the horizon level. So I need the tracking data to attach the object to. I found that If I just track some object at the horizon, I can place the object, and it will stick to it, no problem there. But if I stabilize first, then export the tracking data via the "create tracking data button, any object attached to this data will not move accordingly with the object I’ve tracked.
So is there a way to stabilize and then use of that data to place an object?
3- Is there a way to stabilize only portions of a scene without cutting the scene in separate sections? If, let’s say, I track and stabilize 10 seconds and apply the stabilization to that part, when I get back to after effects these 10 seconds will be stable, but the frame after that 10 seconds will not be affected. I need the rest of the clip to be continuing from the same position (and deformation) that was there at the end of the stabilized portion. Is there a good way to do that?
Thank you so much for your help! Any tips will be welcome, and I can share some example privately if needed.
