Need to replace a logo? The Surface Tracker in Resolve lets you add an image to a surface, even if it moves!
If you’re just putting an image on a sign or screen, planar tracker with corner pin may do the job. But the Surface tracker is perfect when that surface has more complex movement, like a face or clothing.
This tool plus the Patch Replacer make a great combo for removing a logo and inserting a new one, as seen above.
In this video from Matt Quattro, you’ll learn about:
- Finding Surface Tracker in the Effects panel
- Adding to the Node tree
- Creating a mesh to track and replace
- Importing the new logo
- Connecting it to the Surface Tracker
- Removing the old logo with Patch Replacer
