Tracking moving Aircraft question

Hi, I am trying to track the tail of one of our Air Force planes in order to change the tail flash (graphic) on it. It seems straight forward but for some reason I am having problems setting it up.

It is the shot from 4:22 to 4:37




Hi there,

I would start tracking the tail from where it is the most parallel to the camera, sharpest, and most in frame (around 28 seconds in). The shot is super long, so you may need to use adjust track, because of the way mocha tracks you might get some slipping on super long shots like this.

You will also need to be mindful of the parameters you are using to track, you might only need translation, scale, rotation on some parts of the shot, and shear and perspective for when it is turning only. Feel free to change parameters at any time during the track.

Please try that and if you have any more questions, let me know and I will be happy to help you.


Thanks Mary! I’ll give it a go:)
