Brenn Nakamitsu takes a look at using the Planar tracking solution provided by Mocha for After Effects CS6 for tracking a seemingly difficult crane shot.

In this video tutorial, I go over how to do planar motion tracking of a crane shot and compositing. A difficult shot to track by hand, but fairly easily accomplished with the standard bundled Mocha for AE CS6

Tracking anything can be a tricky, with a working method that may work for one shot, may not work for another providing some interesting challenges during production. It is shots like these where Imagineer System’s Mocha software really shines making short work and alleviating the need for manual attention to a number of things.
