Motionblur-less Tracking Marker.

March 17, 2013

After dealing with some very problematic 3d tracking on some high motion blur footage, i got the idea of making a motion-blur less tracking marker.

The idea is very simple.
*High-frequency LED diodes attached to a small computer
*A Camera with a genlock option
*Making a small piece of code that translates the genlock timing into pulses, with intensity that are multiplied by the shutter speed (to compensate for brightness loss)

And wolla, a Motionblur-less Tracking Marker that always display as a perfect dot in your motionblur hell.

Here is a example, 5 led\’s, 1 being genlocked:
