Frequently Asked Questions

.

Pixel film studios image to separate product pages

.

What type of footage is best for this plugin?

.

  • Subject must be well defined and in sharp focus.
  • Subject must have high contrast in relation to surroundings.
  • If there are a lot of brightness or blur changes in the footage, the tracking will not work properly.
  • We recommend shooting at a high frame to reduce motion blur in the footage.  
  • For a more complex track, we recommend placing a small tracking marker physically on the object at defined points. This will increase accuracy in the tracker.

.

Why is the tracker not applying properly?

.

Your subject may not be tracked if it is a screen with a reflective surface. The contents of the reflective screen are moving at a different rate than the rest of the room, and will therefore not track properly.

.

.

How do I add text to the tracked surface?

.

To add text simply input a transparent PNG image into the drop zone or place a title layer on your timeline with your desired text, make it a compound clip, then apply the compound clip to the drop zone.

.

Why is this plugin not tracking my green screen?

.

If you green screen has nothing inside of it, it will not track properly. The reason this is happening is that you are trying to track a plane that has no well-defined features. We recommend that any planar surface you are tracking has well-defined features, with a lot of contrast. For example, a green screen with markers on it will improve the track. A surface with well-defined texture is best.

What is the difference between FCPX Auto Tracker Perspective and FCPX Auto Tracker 1.1?

.

The difference between these two is what they designed to track. The 1.1 Tracker works best when tracking a specific object, such as a football. The perspective tracker works best when tracking planar surfaces, such as a wall.

Why are the tracking controls grayed out?

.

The controls are defaulted this way until you move the on-screen controls for the plugin. Once you move the controls they will no longer be grayed out.
