Motion Tracking in Motion

Hey everybody,

Today I wanted to share a method for compositing a video inside of a Flat panel TV. First I use analyze motion behavior  to record keyframes fcor the position(x,y) for the handheld footage of the TV.  Then I applied the position keyframes to a match move behavior on the footage to be “played” on the TV.  Hopefully this helps you incorporate this easy method Quickly into your own work. The footage was from CCSF Mission Campus Lobby and from the front of Radio Habanero on Valencia street near the campus.
