Introduction and Project Overview
Hello everyone, my name is Michael Raphaelovich. I'm a freelance visual effects artists and my specialty is visual effects matchmoving and compositing. My latest work includes commercials, music videos, and other courses for Digital-Tutors. In this course we're going to see how to object track in SynthEyes. This course is a continuing course to my introduction course of SynthEyes. As you might remember, SynthEyes is a software that is designed solely for matchmoving work, but in this course we will see how to work with the object tracking features that this software has to offer. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include learning how to work with the geometric hierarchy tracking, how to work with the built in polygonal objects, how to translate the supervised tracking information to a moving object, and how to work with the Vertex Weight Map Controls within SynthEyes. Object tracking is a growing request for matchmovers individual effects industry and it is important to know how object tracking is carried out. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques and features with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
