Picture Viewer as animation support

In this video Dr. Sassi discusses the use of After Effects to stabilize a shot before bringing it into Syntheyes for tracking. He then talks about the importance of acting and how displaying a characters motivations is the most important part of being an animator. Jumping back into the technical side of things, Dr. Sassi then talks about how the stabilization data created at the beginning of the shot was used to help mask out J.E.T. helping him interact with objects in the real world.
