Chapter 8. Effective Motion Tracking > Optimizing Tracking via 3D

Optimizing Tracking via 3D

So you get the idea how to set and apply a tracker. Is that all there is to know about tracking in After Effects? Not by a long shot—you've only laid the groundwork for the good stuff. Say you want to track an arbitrary number of overlaid elements into a scene, matching the movement of a camera. You may think that you would have to track each layer individually.

Wrong. There is a way to set up tracking so that adding in tracked elements, including motion blur, rotation, and even scaling of elements, requires no extra steps. You dropthem into the scene as easily as you might have added them when the shot was taken, and they look just as natural. That's right, you can come very close to the look of 3D tracking on many shots without a 3D tracker.
