Cinema 4D R17 - Using the Motion Tracker for 3D Tracking & Compositing

The Motion Tracking tools were added to Cinema 4D in R16, and now in R17 they get some really great updates and enhancements. With the new enhancements, you can now motion track and composite 3d models into live action footage using the Cinema 4D R17 Camera Tracker along with the new Graph view, a new feature to C4D R17. This video includes an overview on the Camera Tracker in Cinema 4D as well as a step by step tutorial on how to motion track a scene and composite 3D objects into live action footage. This also covers the Lens Distortion Tool, another new feature of Cinema 4D R17.

There are so many new features in Cinema 4D R17, I put together several more videos taking a deeper look at new features. Check out these additional topics for more coverage of Cinema 4D R17!
