  • 3d camera tracker says “analysis solved failed”? every time!

    Every time I try to analyze the video with 3d motion track it says this “analysis solve failed”. I have tried 4 other clips of different varieties and it always says this!

    Here’s a screen shot!

    How can I fix this, one thought that I do have in mind is maybe it’s my RAM? I have 4gb of RAM and my mac is constantly doing the “rainbow wheel”

    But please anything helps!

    Thank you very much!

    Well if you are trying to track a fairly hectic first person shooter then the track might not be possible in the first place. Hence the error.

    So it will be a pain, but it’s probably still possible.

    Break your clip into 1 second (or so) chunks. Analyze each section and see which ones fail. If it is only one of them, great! Basically, you may have to manually do the sections that fail.

    My guess is that since it’s a video game, you’re constantly turning so the points the system is trying to track disappear out of the frame.

    Another way would be to let each one second clip handle itself (because it’s possible none of them will fail since they’re shorter) then place each one in a new sequence. You can them play them back to back. But, you’ll probably have to attach them to a null object and manually place each one so that it lines up with the last. Because of that, I would suggest that if you’re working in 1080p to make your final comp 720

    **you have to have your footage and composition the same format, so drag and drop your footage onto the ‘create new composition’ icon at the bottom of your project window**

    Ok, the link I posted doesn’t work anymore. But, one possibility may be that you have a moving object in your scene and it is having a hard time tracking with it. Mask the moving Item out to track and then put it back in after you track your camera. That should work!

    Ok, what has really been working well for me is going crazy in a pre-comp with shadow highlight and contrast. This gives the software more difference between parts of the image, so it can be much more successful in tracking!
