Franken-Tracking with Splice Paths in SynthEyes

September 5, 2023

Sometimes you need to combine two separate tracks together exactly. Most commonly, this involves a shot consisting of normal sections and tripod sections, but other situations might include a shot with a major occlusion in the middle, or as a starting point for a shot that transitions from a wide shot to a full-frame moving object (still tricky). In the past, you needed to assemble the tracks in your favorite animation package, but it is quicker and easier to do it in SynthEyes. Largely but not always superceded by Hold Mode!
