How can I place a 3D card on specific point on point cloud?

PostFri Dec 02, 2022 2:05 am

I have a 3D camera track, and I want to place a 3D image plane in my scene where specific points (from my point cloud) are in my 3D space so that my 3D card will be perfectly tracked to where I want it.
Is there a way to do this without spending a ton of time manually adjusting and going back and forth from 2D view to 3D view to make sure I’m putting the plane on the correct point?

Right click on the point you want to use, copy position, click in the flow and paste, this will create a 3d transform at the position of the point, feed your 3d plane in that transform and you're done.

Do I copy the position on the 3D Camera Tracker node, or the Point Cloud node? I tried on both and I couldn’t find out how to copy the position. Can you walk me through the whole process? Sorry, I’m just getting into 3D in Fusion.

I recently did a tutorial on 3D tracking and putting stuff on cards in 3D space. I think it will help you if you watch it. If after watching it, you still have questions, be sure to check in again.
