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.

I have a LONG history with Blender – I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-)


  1. This is a great new feature:)

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

    Great vid!

  2. 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.

        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?

           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. :(

    couldnt i use a tracking point for each point of my mask together with hoaxes to autotransform?
