Plugin for tracking motion in video

Quickly create titles, images, and animations that “stick” to moving objects in your frame, tracking their motion.


Highlights

  • Easy Point Tracker – track moving objects in your video
  • Easy Planar Tracker – replace phone screens, windows, or signs with your own image
  • Simple Controls – create complex tracking effects quickly and easily

Easy Point Tracker

It's a popular and eye-catching effect - an object moves around in the frame, and a title or animation travels with it, as if they are stuck together somehow. Easy Point Tracker, one of two plugins included with EasyTracker, allows you to create exactly this effect. Want to call out a coffee mug with an animated title that says "Coffee"? Simply draw a box around the coffee mug in the frame, drop in your animated title, and click the "Track" button. EasyTracker also works great with 3rd-party animated templates, so you can create a complex, attractive tracking effect very quickly.

Easy Planar Tracker

EasyTracker also includes a powerful planar tracker called Easy Planar Tracker. Easy Planar Tracker allows you to replace - for example - a sign, window, or phone screen with anything you want. So you could draw a rectangle that matches your phone screen, drop in the image you want to appear in its place, and click "Track".

Simple Controls

Creating a motion tracking effect often requires that you navigate a complex, cumbersome keyframing UI or perform multiple round-trips to a compositing application like After Effects. It can slow your project to a crawl. EasyTracker is designed for video editors - it lets you work quickly, achieve great tracking results, and get your project out the door.

How to use Easy Point Tracker

1. Drag Easy Point Tracker onto your clip. You can find it under Effects>CrumplePop EasyTracker.

2. Choose your title/graphic that you want to use as the “follower” object, and drag it down onto your timeline.

3. Set the position and appearance of the title/graphic “follower” object (size, font, color, etc.).

4. Make the “follower” object clip a compound clip.

5. In the Easy Point Tracker plugin, click on the image well.

6. On the timeline, click on the first frame of the “follower” clip. Click the “Apply” button.

7. Click on the “follower” clip to select it, and then hit the the “v” key to hide it (this way you can keep it around in case you want to modify it later.)

8. On your video clip, draw a box around the area that you want to follow. It’s best to select a part of the object you want to track that won’t be covered by another object. It’s also best to avoid including too much of the background in your selection.

9. Click the “Track” button. Render, and you’re done.

10. If later you want to modify the “follower” clip, double-click on the compound clip to reveal your “follower” clip, and make your changes. Next, clear the old clip from the image well in the Easy Point Tracker plugin. Then repeat steps 5-9.
