How Do I Create A Motion Tracking Object Moving Behind Someone?
I want to have an object moving across screen, and then have the object temporarily disappearing behind someone for a short time.
Let’s say I want the object to temporarily disappear from 1.07 – 1.25, while someone is talking to the camera.
Could I accomplish this in Shotcut by doing the following?
- Creating two Video Tracks
- Duplicating the footage from 1.07 – 1.25, and moving that duplicate clip to the upper Video Track, so that it will be visible from 1.07 – 1.25, blocking the footage from the lower Video Track during that time (because the upper VT takes priority)
- Creating the Motion Tracking on the lower Video Track
Would this work?
Even if it would work, is there a ‘better’ way to do this (whatever ‘better’ means in this situation)?
Thanks for any help.
I just found this video by James Woo which explains how to create moving text behind him in the video
James uses Glaxnimate, and a mask in this process, and I am wondering if this is the only way to accomplish this.
