I'm currently quite new to matchmoving and I've been dropped into the deep end with a shot (which i'm not complaining or anything, love working in film/video and il take anything I am given) but I need some advice on how to tackle it.
In the shot there is heavy background motion blur, so all the focus is aimed at the foreground elements (characters), I can just barely manage to track the scene but when it comes to calibration the results are somewhat different....
the shot is quite "advanced" meaning its not the average shot where the cam sits on a tripod or a crane, instead it looks as if the camera is a steadycam and held by hand, so the movement is quite erratic.
Because the elements in the background are heavily blurred and the characters run through alot of them, what is the best way to calibrate a successful solution?
I've winged it but it doesn't produce the results I'm after.
the main problem is troubleshooting the calibration, trying to get a steady motion path.. would be better to edit the curve in the 3d animation package or keep trying using the matchmove software (i use maya and 3d equalizer)
