Tutorial 136: Procedural Tracking FUI

Joe Clay | Aug 10, 2018

This week we take use various techniques to pull mattes that we feed into the Minimax effect to make tracking marks that follow our footage. It's procedurally built so once you've made the setup, you just have to alter things to fit your source footage, but the rest of the effect will build itself.

We also learn how to use the transform effect to make effects that only have a horizontal or vertical effect conform to any angle we wish. That's a particular favorite of mine.

I love how well this works. It's perfect for FUI designs. And as a bonus, you can just use the mattes alone to add visual interest for backgrounds or whatever other uses you can find. So, as always I encourage you to go out and experiment!

If you want to experiment with the IR look, check out this and this.
