In this series of lessons we will go through the different types of 2D tracking. We will learn how to do a simple one-point translation track, a two point track that also involves rotation and scale, as well as a four point track used for screen replacement. Throughout the course, we learn how to troubleshoot issues that arise while tracking, as well as best practices for getting the most accurate track possible. We explore using color correction, defining the channel information to use in the track, as well as a few other possibilities for assisting difficult tracks. Whether you are a beginner to tracking or just need to brush up on your tracking skills, this training covers all the knowledge you need to become a master tracker. By the end of this tutorial, you will be able to perform all the different types of 2D tracks, as well as solve the problems you encounter while trying to get the perfect track. Software required: After Effects 12.2.0.52.
