Planar Tracking on Your AE Timeline

King Pin Tracker is a plug-in that brings the power of a planar tracker directly into Adobe After Effects. It’s an easy to use tool in a familiar environment — no need to step out of AE for great tracking results anymore. King Pin Tracker is incredibly fast and accurate, and can track surfaces in changing lighting, even as they leave the frame.

Easy Corner Pinning...

King Pin Tracker makes it simple to replace signs or add rectangular objects into a shot. But what if your object isn’t rectangular, or has an alpha channel? What if there’s nothing to track where you want to place your object? King Pin Tracker has you covered. With powerful To and From pins, and the ability to offset and rotate in planar space, you can pin whatever you want, wherever you want it.

...And Much More

Pinning signs and the like is just the beginning. In our work at Red Giant, we’ve used King Pin Tracker for applying digital makeup effects, removing unwanted objects from complex moving shots, prop replacement, and more. With high quality motion blur and a render engine that keeps layers sharp while avoiding moiré, King Pin Tracker makes it easy to composite your tracked objects believably.
