Got this drone footage to track of a big truck patio. Huge stuff. The drone is quarter-circling the warehouses, and I could get me 8 solid tracking points and the camera solved.
- Set the floor with 3 trackers: ok.
- Set the origin tracker: ok.
- Set x and y axis: ok.
- Link empties to track: ok.
- Setup tracking scene: ok.
Among other things, I tried, so far:
- Rotating the setup;
- Changing the height of the camera;
- Changing the scale;
- Manually correct the rotation on all axis;
- Setting the solve method to tripod;
- Scavenging an answer to a similar problem here on the forums: no success.
The thing is that the markers position is accurate only from the top view (wich is not the camera's position). Footage was not captured top down, so it doesn't make any sense to me that the markers are top down. I don't even know if I'm making myself clear. Hehe.
But here's the weird alignment on the trackers to the camera:
What am I doing wrong? What is being missed? The parallax exist, doesn't it? Is there another approach to this? I tried the plane tracking, but in my research I figured that it wasn't the proper scenario for it.
Looking at the trackers spreading like that it makes me think that this is all incorrect, but then how one can track such a camera movement from aerial footage? We do have other takes from the same place, different views, but same alignment problem. The trackers kinda look flat.
