Billboard Offset behaviour

FAQ Studio Operators Composer Camera Tracking

 

My scene is reading freeD tracking and a camera video feed from a seperate "trackless" camera.

Right now the tracking seems fine, but the camera video feed is offset by quite a lot.


I can adject the position of the billboard, but couldn't dig the video out from the floor.

What is going on here?

Hi,

Billboards work very differently in Tracked cameras than in Virtual cameras. In simple terms, the video is attached to the camera's position in the Tracked camera.
The height of the tracking camera from the floor is probably incorrect in your case. Or it could be that the studio or the scene panel in the tracked camera compound is incorrect.
Our documentation on tracked cameras can help you to set up the studio and scene panels: https://aximmetry.com/learn/tutorials/for-studio-operators/setting-up-virtual-sets-with-tracked-cameras/#aligning-the-virtual-set The Aligning the virtual set and Compositing modes paragraphs are also very relevant to billboards.

Warmest regards,
