I have a short video panning through some mountains and my goal is to place 4 texts over the important areas. But I have some trouble:
(I’m using the rc 23.04.20)
I can track and place the text fine on the first mountain that is in frame at the begining of the clip. But how do I tell the filter to track an object that appears after the first 7 seconds? In the preview if I select an area at second 7 and hit play it will properly track it for the duration of the playback but after hitting analyze it just tracks something at the opposite edge of the screen.
Alternatively I don’t actually need to track a particular area of the clip because it’s all moving at the same rate (I am panning across a far away landscape), does this help my goal? (as in, there’s no object within the frame moving at a different rate, everything could be considered a 2D plane panning around - just not smooth enough)
What does Offset mean in the Load keyframes from Motion Tracker’s Adjust dropdown mean? All the other ones make sense but this one just goes weird?
- This is possibly a bug: if I don’t type anything in the name before hitting Analyze, there’s a default “Tracker 1” created, but in the dropdown after hitting Loading in Text:simple I see “Tracker 0” and after reopening Shotcut I see both a Tracker 0 and Tracker 1 with the first one not doing anything if selected. Tracker 0 seems to stay there forever even if I delete the initial Motion Tracker filter.
Note: I know I could just manually keyframe for this particular example.
