In this series of lessons we'll learn how to use the Toxik tracker to analyze footage and find the position of objects. This is an important technique for matching an image or animation's movement, rotation, scale and perspective skewing to real-life footage. We'll begin this project by doing a simple one point track using some easy footage. We'll then learn how to do a two point track on real footage. Lastly, we'll track the four corners of a television screen. We'll then learn some tips and tricks for getting a track from difficult footage and how to take our four point track and finish the shot using color correction tools to match the images together. Software required: Toxik 2010 for project files.
