Introduction to Motion Tracking

with

Motion tracking is an essential part of visual effects and CG work, but it is also a really valuable tool to have for more simplistic applications. In this course you'll learn a number of different uses and applications for motion tracking, and how to use motion tracking tools built-in to Adobe After Effects, and third-party trackers like Mocha AE.

With these tools we will be able to clean up portions of our scene, add text to just about anything, and pull off some more advanced tracks.
