lookin good so far. Keep up the great work!!! Can't wait to see the final.
BTW, what settings did you use in Boujou to track the footage? I can access boujou at a friends house and want to have everything ready before i get there. I'd appreciate your assistance. thanks! (i tried a nodal pan, but still got some jitters in the tracking)

looks sweet! :thumbsup: Yeah, I cant wait either until I see the final result either. BTW, one of the tanks still needs to be stabilized. Good luck!

@seantree: i did first deinterlaced the footage in c*2 and tracked this one. all settings were left by default and it worked great for me. i think it must be set to "free move", because it seems not to shot on a tripod (what would be a requirement for a nodal pan)
can't give more hints, because it have no great experience in motion tracking

cool result.. :thumbsup:
about boujou, I Used nodal pan & it worked !
but as you know, with nodal pan you get all this parallax $hit, so I'm gonna try the free move, at least I'll be able to describe geometry.

I really like your video :thumbsup:
Your entry looks really promising: I have only a couple of small comments:
1) the big tank in the foreground seems to shake a bit: it doesn't seems to be in perfect sync with the background.
2) the elicopted is too dark: the sun light is directed toward the background, so the side of the elicopter that we see should be more crisp and clear like the tower or the tank or the hill.
3) the border between the black and the video are too soft. There is too much blur in my opinion: they need to be more crisp.
Keep up the good work :cheers:

pingking: could you get rid of the camera shake ?
When I place an object in boujou it looks fine, but camera shake appears weather I import in max or AE :(
