This is a short example of how I use motion tracking and 3D cameras inside of After Effects to reduce shaky video shots from vehicle-mounted cameras. I use a lot of unconventional tricks in AE in an effort to make drift videos that are different and unique.This clip was shot at Southeast Drift’s Triple Threat III event at Turner Field in Atlanta, GA. rnThis shot features Erin Sanford and Austin Lawless running chase tandem, while I’m running lead with the camera mounted on my rear bumper.This clip differs from most “chase-cam” shots, in that the shooting car is also drifting. rnThis is the same shooting style I used for “KILL OR BE KILL”.A screenshot of the track points from inside After Effects:rnAll of the jagged points are camera shake. By implementing a 3D camera and using these track points as anchor point data for the camera, I am able to smooth out the camera movement with a simple expression.
I had a limited run pressed up of some new Slide Style™ stickers.
