After Effects CC Motion Tracking

by Jeff Hurd

After Effects CC is the industry leading animation and composition software used by professional visual effect artists. This course will teach you how to use the various built-in motion trackers to add motion graphics and 3D objects into any scene.

What you'll learn

Have you ever tried to track an object or scene and reshot it or gave up because it just wouldn’t track properly? In this course, After Effects CC Motion Tracking, you'll learn how to easily track even the most difficult shot right inside of After Effects. First, you'll explore how to properly create position, rotation, and scale tracking points. Next, you'll delve into screen replacement as you replace a phone screen with a video of a mobile application. Finally, you’ll learn how to create an entire 3D scene from a 2D video layer and add 3D objects like 3D text. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll not only be able to add motion graphics tracked to any object in a scene, but also export the 3D tracking data from After Effects to any other 3D modeling software for more advanced 3D objects. Software required: After Effects CC.
