360° Object Tracking with PowerDirector 16

By CyberLink Learning Center

To make 360° videos even more interactive, Motion Tracking offers a great way to highlight which objects you would like your audience to follow. To achieve this, you can add a title or an effect to an object. And PowerDirector 16 makes Motion Tracking easier than ever, with an intelligent tracking algorithm that accurately follows objects through 360° footage.

Step 1: Add Video Footage to the Timeline and Begin Motion Tracking

Drag your 360° video footage onto the timeline and select “Create a 360° video project”. 

Select your video clip on the timeline and click on Tools > Motion Tracker.

Step 2: Use Motion Tracker to Track an Object

When you open Motion Tracker, you’ll first need to drag and resize the selection box to sight-in the object you wish to track. A smaller selection box is recommended. Once you have marked your object, click Track to begin tracking.

Step 3: Add a Title or Media to the Tracked Object

Now that the motion tracking has been completed, let’s add a title to this object.

Please also note that if you would like to add more text or media clips to the same object, just right click on Tracker 1 and then select Copy Tracker.

Step 4: Tracking Multiple Objects

If you would like to add another title or media to a different object, you can click Add a Tracker and repeat the steps as above to track another object.
