Why I did not heed advice from so many good friends sooner, I have no clue. My trusty Apple Mighty Mouse has now taken a permanent position on the shelf, as this Wacom Intuos4 tablet has relieved it from further duty. I had heard from several people that there is a learning curve of two weeks in transitioning to a tablet. I didn’t experience that at all. I instantly felt at home… aside from occasionally going to grab where my mouse has been sitting for close to 20 years – but even that habit broke fast.Using the pressure-sensitive brush in Photoshop physically gave me goosebumps. I don’t think that has ever happened to my from using a computer before. It is like I have access to a sketchbook with infinite layers, and the incredible ability to undo. I am indelibly hooked!

Averaged Motion Tracking. from Andy Sapp on Vimeo.

A short clip I made while experimenting with averaging track points in After Effects to create solid, precise tracks. In the past when I have motion tracked… it always seems slightly off. I have now learned that if you track several times over, and average that data together – you get a rock-solid tracking point.I then created some quick motion-type pieces to follow the these points. It took several layers of compositing to create the illusion of depth caused by things passing in front of one another. I added a light-streak to the back of Tyler’s light to see if I could match the live video with an object in 3D space (the particle emitter for the light).This video clip was shot using a Flip Mino HD, which was not the best to try and track with. The motion blur made it incredibly difficult to find solid track points. I’m sure I will try more of this using my XL-H1.This was a fun experiment that I learned a great deal from. I’m excited at some new possibilities that will come of this new workflow.
