Adobe After Effects: Motion Tracking in Adobe After Effects 5.5

Chapter: Visual and Creative Effects

Topic: Explosions and Shatter

This article tracks a countdown to a bomb using Motion Tracking in Adobe After Effects. When Adobe first introduced motion tracking and stabilization in After Effects, many users were disappointed in some of the poor results they received. As AE improved over time, so did motion tracking and stabilization. By knowing which settings to tweak and how to manipulate the tracking data, After Effects generates results that may have those naysayers using this option a lot more.[The Motion Tracker has evolved to more accurate in After Effects 6.0 and 6.5 and is covered in later articles for After Effect 6.x but the techniques for an explosion will be relevant regardless of the version of After Effect.]
