Twice a month we revisit some of our reader’s favorite posts from back in the archives of Aetuts+. Today we’ll look at a rockin' post from Mathias Möhl. This tutorial was originally published in Jan 2009... Enjoy!

In this tutorial we continue exploring how to create some high-end techniques easily by using scripts to facilitate our workflow. Mathias Möhl teaches us how to track moving video to a postcard that was shot handheld with help from some scripts that he authored and are freely available. He also shows how to recover highlights from the tracked footage and apply them back over the moving video for a very convincing effect.
