Quick Overview

Allows you to remove 'unnecessary' keyframes generated by the built-in mask tracker. It will look at the mask's tracker-generated every-frame keyframes and remove those frames that fall under a threshold of being similar to their predecessor.

Allows you to remove 'unnecessary' keyframes generated by the built-in mask tracker. It will look at the mask's tracker-generated every-frame keyframes and remove those frames that fall under a threshold of being similar to their predecessor.

Two passes are executed: removal and reinforcement.

The removal pass consists of removing keyframes that are too similar to the previous one. Two keyframes are considered similar when none of the vertices has moved more than the specified (removal) threshold.

The reinforcement pass analyzes every successive pair of the remaining keyframes. When a vertex has moved more than the (reinforcement) threshold, a previously removed keyframe is reintroduced in the middle of the two keyframes. This phase is repeated until every pair satisfies the condition. The percentage of keyframe reduction is written to the Info palette.
