Do Head Tracking In Blender Without The Markers

Sebastian König shows how to use Blender’s Tracking module without any markers.

If you’ve been working with Blender, then it probably won’t surprise you that a competent tracker is part of the toolset. But if tracking objects or heads without markers sounds more appealing to your workflow – don’t worry! All we have to do is track where our face will be in relation and let this software take care from there (and not get lost).

Learn how to track a person’s head with Blender using markers in this extended tutorial by BlendFX and Sebastian König. The example used is for tracking the face mask from their classic Tears of Steel project, which will be put onto an actor’s skullcap during post-production time on set or home video footage recorded live off camera (with permission).
