Your problem - from a VSE point of view: You want your End Frame Range to be set to your newly imported Footages length. The solution: While still hovering over the VSE view press PageUp. Hover your mouse over your timeline and press E to match your End Frame with your Current frame. (Blenders Hotkeys are context sensitive) Note: Make sure, the ...

No, the MCE or UV/Image editor's masks will not translate upwards to the 3D view. They occur in the post phase of Blenders sequence of operations. Also I am told that its to hard to make a rasteriser for arbitrary material parameters. I guess they would have to operate at screen space? You can see a more thorough breakdown of this at my blog. The work ...

Hold down Shift and click on the X button right beside the mask dropdown. This will unlink the 'mask data-block' from your file. To get rid of the mask's data, you can either save and re-open your blend-file or just click the Purge All button in the Outliner:

The reason it is not working like you expected is because you are using a mask. Right now all you are getting is a black and white mask that has no transformational information so all it is doing is "hiding" the part of the image outside of your mask. What you want to do is use a Plane track and a Plane Track Deform Node. After setting up the plane track, ...

A way to do that is to use the Animation Nodes addon to easily link a text strip of the VSE to a value. Once your video added to the VSE, add a text effect strip: ShiftA, then 'effect strips' and 'text' Choose its colors, size, position, etc. on the N/right panel of the VSE Now go to the Node Editor, choose Animation Nodes (see below for installation link) ...

In the scene preferences turn ON metadata. Select the information that you would like to see in the frame. You can choose to see the scene properties but not the strip properties unfortunately*. Here is the overlay in the render view, only available when a new frame is rendered. Sorry it does not seem to be available in the VSE live view. You could keep a ...

To draw straight lines select Draw>Line on the grease pencil section. Otherwise press CtrlD and place the cursor on the starting point of the straight line, then release the Ctrl key while still holding the D key, and position the end point of the line and release the D key.

Normally you cannot crop (redefine) video size from VSE, since it's globally set in Dimensions panel under Render Tab. So you have to redefine the Resolution(s) after cropping in VSE to remove stretching effect:

There is a hard coded frame count in Blender. You could recompile it with a larger frame count and see if things work, as I believe your piece is over the maximum. While I cannot remember the number, you shouldn't have too much trouble locating it. It might be more optimal to chop the piece into smaller portions using another tool and reassemble them.

To stabilize such a simple shot you just need a few trackers in the scene. This is one of those situations where having more trackers is not necessarily better. 4 trackers spread far apart in the picture will do. Once you track those points you should have enough information to stabilize, you need to select which ones you want to use to determine location ...

they are just the factors of parabolic and quadratic distortion, as well as a distortion of power 6. lens distortion has to be symmetric/isotrtopic, hence it can be written as function of a pixels distance to the center. this distance changes with an towards the center (=distortion). The new distorted distance to the center is D_r(r) = r+ k1*(r)^2 + k2*(r)^...

According to the Blender Manual, 12-bit TIFF is not supported (but 8 and 16 bit TIFF is): https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/dev/data_system/files/media/image_formats.html I suggest converting the sequence to a different format (e.g. 16-bit TIFF, which is supported); there are several softwares that can achieve this. (I often use FFmpeg for this purpose—...

Your preview window is displaying a histogram (technical reference image). Click on the checkerboard icon at the bottom of the VSE timeline

The compositor only imports bitmapped images like OpenEXR tiff png jpeg etc. Perhaps you could open the pdf in a pdf app then export it or try screen grabbing it. To use svg files you can try importing them as an object in the 3d view then film that with the 3D camera. This can be added to the compositor as a "Scene" node.

I'm assuming you're talking about the Mask mode of the Movie Clip Editor (it's the only 'clip editor' that has a 2D cursor). I've looked through Blender's source code, and it seems that the cursor location is not exposed to Python.


2

You can only use unedited clips in the motion tracker for now.


2

The only tracks created for camera can be used for stabilization. Select markers and copy them Ctrl+C Select (in N side properties panel): Objects -> Camera Paste markers here Ctrl+V Now you can use copied markers for stabilization


2

In the Movie Clip Editor use the footage settings. Click on the folder icon and navigate to the place where the video clip is stored. Alternatively you can use the outliner. Set it to Data-block and manually edit the path to the Movie CLip file.

I had the frame range set to the wrong set of frames.

You must manually add the image. press N to spaw the view properties menu in the 3D View - Object Mode. In there, locate a check box that reads, Background Images ( It's around the bottom). Drop it down and enable it. Click on add images, locate the photo you used in BLAM and you should have the image visible from the camera view.

Do this in the compositor. Positioning the greenscreen element can be done with a Distort>Transform node, moving the Values for X and Y will give you control of Horizontal and Vertical.

The graphs on the Movie Clip Editor are quite different than most other parts of the interface, even tough they look similar. Think of them informational instead of editing tools. To view a particular tracker it helps to open the Track section in the numeric panel on the right of the screen. That will show you the search box for that particular tracker at ...

I'm not sure of what you are refering to "view selected". Do you mean to only display the curves of selected components ? If so, push down the little arrov button in the graph editor's header : Do you mean to focus the view on your selection ? Simply hit the numpad . (dot) key.

Welcome to Blender stack Exchange! That's because of an option called 'Snap During Transform'. It's a little magnet icon in the toolbar at the bottom of the 3D view (in Blender 2.79b and earlier) or at the top center of the 3D view (Blender 2.80 and later). The keyboard shortcut is Shift+_Tab. I find those keys very easy to accidentally bump because of the ...

Frames will give you control on the source’s duration (in frames): How many frames do you want to use? Playback will repeat the last frame unless you choose Cyclic* (see below) Start Frame is the frame in the scene at which the video clip will start playing. Offset allows you to select the first frame of the video source. Cyclic* will make the cycle of ...

You can use Maths nodes to set up logic that allows you to select an image based on an input and this can be used instead of the image sequence or video. For example, consider the following nodes : The images are set in each of the Image nodes highlighted. To corresponding Greater Than nodes should each have incremental values and these will control the Mix ...

Thank you to the people that replied. OK, so the issue was that i had an object made linked to my video, when I created it i had flipped the horizon. I worked on some other objects, worked on camera tracking as well(in other words forgot about that object). When I remembered I had this object i hide it and flipped the backdrop image to its original horizon....

Have you selected a audio codec before rendering ? By default it's on "none" (Properties panel -> render -> encoding)

I figured out a workaround! So what I ended up doing was to write a small script to change all the 2D strokes I made to 3D strokes: gp = bpy.context.scene.grease_pencil for l in gp.layers: for f in l.frames: for s in f.strokes: s.draw_mode='3DSPACE' For some reason which I do not know, the 3D strokes were the correct orientation ...

thanks for the reply :) I actually did manage to get the distortion working properly. :) My mistake was that I had hit the "centre" button( Movie Clip Editor > Properties panel > camera > centre ) after solving and that was throwing the undistort node off in the compositor. Setting the correct values again in the "centre" panel fixed it. I cannot post ...
