Hello Again My Friends and welcome to another video tutorial. Today is a great day for me and this is because i am having my cursor on the BRAND NEW tracker assisted masking addition of Blender 2.6.8.

Note: this is not in the 2.63 release yet, so remember that you need to download a build from Graphicall. Like this one.

    This is a great new feature:)

    Thanks for this cool introduction/ tutorial, its really easy to follow and fun to watch!!!

    Great vid!

  • John

    Automatic deformation of the curve based on optical flow in the video would be a great addition- it would reduce A TON of that manual tweaking.

    • Daniel

      Just enjoy the reduction of manual work by 10000%.

        Its great that there are lots of tracking tutorials for blender, Because a few months ago, I have a hard time finding tracking tutorials. Great Video, Very easy to follow. Are you using blender for animation? Are you gonna make tutorials for the game engine too? Blender Games for android?

        • Michalis Giokas

           I use blender for almost anything. Too bad i have almost never used the game engine :( i was too busy on other things such as modelling,texturing and compositing. :(

    • Michalis Giokas

  • Jalik
