Curious Turtle Fundamentals of mocha – 12 – Camera Solver – Pan Tilt Zoom
This is an excerpt from Curious Turtle's Fundamentals of mocha Premium, a new series of tutorials for Imagineer System's mocha family designed for those just starting out. Starting from the very basics, the course is designed to help you understand how mocha Pro and mochaAE work, and how you can get the best results out of it. The total course is 4.5 hours long, split into a total of 16 exercises.
12 – Camera Solver – Pan Tilt Zoom: Before we look at mocha's Camera Solver, we fix issues with incorrectly interpreted interlaced footage.Next we identify what the camera motion is in the shot, to correctly create the type of tracked layers required to create the virtual camera. In this tutorial the movement is Pan Tilt Zoom, so we prepare the main track layer plus a track matte layer. Once the camera is solved, we look at how to test it in After Effects using both a regular 3D text layer and a 3D particle layer.
