I hope this is in the right section, Does anyone have access to a good tutorial on tracking in lightwave.

A scenario would be to have a video where you are driving, and then track it and later place a 3D house within this film and as you move by it the house will sorta fit in the film due to the tracking. Aswell as some masking tutorial aftewards to blend it in afterwards?

I had one awhile back but I cant find it anymore.

+1 to what erikals said.

You could go through this thread and see if this helps.

Thank you two! If I recall correctly, it might actually have been after effects, that did the tracking Im not sure haha, I will look into it some more =)

If you want it to by placed in 3d space and look any good, you are going to want a 3d match move /tracking solution. I second Syntheyes ( although other programmes are out there. )

Which other programs are there? Any free ones that dont cost? Although I haven not checked the pricing on Syntheyes yet.

voocat and pfhoe are maybe good alternatives.
