I am an animal behaviorist and AfterEffects (CC) may be the key to solving my unique problem. Let's say I have a video of six small animals housed individually in circular arenas.
- Track each animal simultaneously in real time or track them when the footage is sped up. The latter bit is important since I have hours of footage to track and it would be nice if I could expedite this process.
- Export or copy/paste the 2D positional data (x,y) to a spreadsheet.
I know that AfterEffects is capable of tracking a fixed point when the camera is moving. However, I am interested to know if the app can perform the inverse of that scenario: static camera position with multiple moving objects.
