Long matchmove - split clips and merge at the end?


#1

Hi. I’m a bit stuck on a matchmove I’m creating. I found the full length “Diva Plavalaguna - opera performance” from The Fifth Element. It is shot on green screen in one take and it’s 5 minutes long.

I’ve tracked the whole thing, but upon solving the trackers…Uhm, Let’s just say I don’t think it will be done during my lifetime.

For very long shots, can you split the clip up and track them separetly and merge the tracking data seamlessly at the end?

I used pftrack and though it was very easy to work with it had a habit of crashing.
Maybe another matchmoving software you recommend.

Here’s the clip
