When I set the floor of my tracking scene, I have to select 3 points to use. However, I noticed that the orientation changes depending on which 3 points I pick. I always thought it didn't matter. But that begs the question, which 3 points work best? Here are some pictures showing the situations.

As shown in the pictures, different points give different results, of which some work better than others. How should I know which 3 points to use in a scene not as controlled as this? This is not a subjective question directly relating to this scene, it is so that I know which points are supposed to be used, as there is a right and wrong answer. enter image description here

The 3 selected trackers are the ones used to set the floor, and you can see using the y axis that the position and orientation changes.

  • $\begingroup$ I will check that tomorrow for curiousity ... But from your screens you can see one of them represents world origin, and one x axis ... Did you setup also y axis and x axis ... The buttons bellow Floor,Wall? $\endgroup$ – vklidu Apr 5 at 21:56
  • $\begingroup$ No, but those make the results worse. The only thing I did use was origin. But notice how it doesn't only affect orientation, but offset as well. $\endgroup$ – Relevred Apr 6 at 0:46

    $\begingroup$ Hard to guess based on the provided screenshots. I'd recommend add a blend file along with the footage. I suppose that there is something wrong with some of the trackers on the ground since their movement over time is way too different. $\endgroup$ – brockmann Apr 9 at 6:12

    $\begingroup$ @brockmann OP was already asking ho w to share, but nobody answer that ... with image sequence I'm not sure ... it seems like it is not possible pack into blender, right? With tracker issue I thought the same, but error is just 0,13 ... $\endgroup$ – vklidu Apr 13 at 8:05
