This is a first test playing with the Foundry's cameratracker plugin for after effects. I wrote a little melt script in realflow, so used a test simulation with that to track into some footage.

Needs some work with motion blur and a tidier track but the Foundry's plugin seems stable and fast. There were a few little niggles to start with in getting the data from afx over to cinema but the pt_aetoc4d script did a pretty painless job overall.

GI gave a fair few problems with flickering and compositing the ground plane to the BG but a bit of fiddling sorted those out.

Going to have a go at something a little longer and more ambitious....!

(I did a fuzzy sort of bad tv grade in a poor attempt to hide some of the flaws....)
