Unable to track Trump's executive order


I’m trying to make my own “Trump executive order meme”

I thought it would be pretty easy to track that white rectangular shape, however the tracking fails at the very first keyframe. SAD!

Here are my parameters in mocha AE:

OK, i don’t know how to insert a still image in this forum thread, but parameters are:

input channel - luminance

Min % pixels used - 90

Translation, Scale Rotation, Shear, Perspective - all checked

Large motion - checked

And here is my result:



(i copied corner pin data, made sure timeline indicator was at 0:00 in AE, created new solid (matched Comp size), pasted tracking data, precomposed, left all atributes in the current comp)



and it would be nice if somebody told me how to insert pictures in this forum, thank you

Track a larger area of the book, not inside the pages but outside the edges of the book. Here’s a good tutorial for inserting images too, even if they’re not the same size as the footage: http://www.imagineersystems.com/videos/align-surface-and-mismatched/

We have a whole webinar on screen tracking (the same thing as a book, really): http://www.imagineersystems.com/videos/webinar-tracking-screens-with-mocha-2/

And we have a written breakdown too on this sort of workflow: http://www.imagineersystems.com/blog/how-to-track-a-screen-in-mocha/

Hopefully one of these methods will help you get huge results, that people will think are bigly terrific. :wink:


Tried to track a larger area of the book and got tremendous results! I didn’t even have to read any of those tutorials - because I’m smart! :slight_smile:
