VP 16 New Motion Tracking ?

D.Anne wrote on 9/6/2018, 12:49 AM

Decided to spend a few hours with VP 16 (261) this evening to learn about the new motion tracking feature that "enables the user to follow the motion of on-screen objects and apply video FX and filters to the moving area"

Unfortunately I haven't found anything in the online help or the tutorials that discuss this. Anyone want to guide me somewhere that gives any hints about this feature?

VP 16 (261) working fine so far on my Ryzen 1700X, AMD 280. 32 GB.

Nice video! The presenter has a very clear and concise style. Is it you xberk?

@xberk, thanks for the tutorial. While it works, you can do it more efficiently. You don't need to duplicate the motion tracked event. Instead, on the Bézier controls, expand the General Options and set the Blend amount to 1.00. Same final result, but without the extra track to drag along. Also, I'd recommend experimenting with the offset settings instead of using Event Pan/Crop. You'll soon get a feel for the offset settings and can always Undo and run the script again with different settings until you get what you want. It's just more compact in the final result, but again, there's nothing wrong with the way you did it in the video.

Thanks Gary ... Learning all the time here .. Part of the greatest of Vegas is this Forum where we all get so much help ... ..

Thanks Nick .. Maybe I'll do something on the PIP addition to Track Motion .. set the guys hat on fire or something.

Gotta say, the motion tracking in V16 is brilliant and super intuitive.

I had learned it in Hitfilm, and that was extremely tedious, unintuitive and complicated.

Kudos to the Magix team!

Hi everyone, I have now upgraded to pro 16 and I am trying to use the Bezier masking tool to track a mountain biker, I can see the key frames been added but when playing it back the circle is not following the subject. I have followed man videos but still can not work out what I ma be doing wrong.

Version 16.0 (build 352)

Windows 10 (64 bit)

Processor: AMD A8-9600 ADEON R7, 10 Compute cores 4c+6g

GPU: Radeon RX560 4gb. Adrenalin

Hi Iain-Johnson,

the mask overlay is not updated during playback. It is only updated when you scrub through the footage (using mouse or arrow keys).

If you want to manipulate the region within the mask, ''Mask FX" option should be activated and the desired FX (e.g. Pixelate) must be placed in FX chain before the Bézier Masking FX.

Edit: There is a tutorial on motion tracking in VP16:

Thanks to the above tutorial, I chanced to try the Bezier tool again, and must say this works great!! Good work thanks Magix Dev team I wanted to do this [tracked text] for a long time ;-)

Crew, since the 'Vegas Title_Text' tool is a little sparse, any idea how to use this with say NewBlue TitlerPro6?

Is it possible to copy / paste keyframe (position) information?

Its possible to track an objet in Z space to change the size acordingly to the size of tracked object?
I want to place callouts on some buildings!
