Object tracking, or video tracking, is the process of tracking the movements of an object over time using a camera. This course approaches object tracking as it is used for VFX in the film industry.
Syntheyes is a program used for 3D camera tracking (i.e. object tracking, video tracking, geometry tracking, match-moving, etc.). The program allows you to track objects in a scene and find out where they moved in a 3D environment.
In this course you will learn about object tracking methods in the SynthEyes software. Some covered topics include:
- Setting up supervised trackers
- Geometric hierarchy panel
- Solving a moving camera and object shot
- Facial tracking
- Vertex maps
- Much more
