Difficult Nuke Tracking Situations

Over the summer The Foundry asked if I could produce some new Nuke tutorials for them.  The tutorials start off pretty straightforward with a relatively simple 3D camera track.  In later videos I look at using Smart Distort to try to attach a blood element to a deforming shirt. It shows when Smart Distort works well and when it breaks down.

The last video is trying to attach some facial bruising to a fast moving face.  It's difficult to track so I ended up using Keen Tool's GeoTracker.

What was really cool is that The Foundry worked out a deal with EditStock.com to provide the footage for free, so anyone can jump in and try it out for themselves.  Just go to this link for the footage.
