Track warping objects and apply warped movement in Adobe After Effects with the Lockdown plugin by Chris Vranos & aescripts + aeplugins.
Over the past decade, the tracking features found within After Effects have become phenomenal. Long gone are the days where you need to manually track a pesky point that After Effects couldn’t correctly pinpoint. Now, for most footage, you can easily 3D camera track most objects within a stable shot, and add your 3D element — text, object, set extension, and so forth — within minutes.
However, tracking warping objects and applying the warped movement to the object was somewhat challenging, or downright impossible to complete, solely by using After Effects and no other software. Now, a new plugin called Lockdown from Chris Vranos & aescripts + aeplugins seek to change that.
