Tracking Markers

Coin tracking markers for green screen filming in hand
Tracking Markers on Green Screen backround for CGI shoot

Small markers placed on the scene when shooting for CGI

If you are filming a subject against green (or blue) screen and you want to move the camera during the shot, then you will need to place tracking markers into the scene.

In post production, computer software locks on to the tracking markers and uses them to create a camera move on the background image which matches the studio camera move.

When the foreground and background elements are combined to create the final image, it looks as if it's all been shot at the same time and with a single camera move.
