Part one is about 17 mins. I explain how to use the camera tracker. How to create cameras and solids within the tracking data as well as nulls. How to export that to cinema 4d.. Finally I show you quickly how to add geometry to your scene and how to sync it to your footage using the data we exported.. I hope this helps
