Motion tracking test using the built-in camera tracking

I was looking for how to do motion tracking with Blender last night. I was surprised to hear version 2.61 added this feature natively, which is very awesome! So I decided to give it a try and spent a few hours on a simple video, in which I placed the default monkey head on my computer desk. I also used reflection and refraction, reflections done by using the first frame of the original video as an env-map. Let me know what you think :slight_smile:

Tracking can be hard, and actually impossible if you don’t have clear elements to define the track (hence the objects on my table, since I got a huge error amount when solving the camera without them). As for tutorials, I watched two:

Good tracking, although it does gradually slide to the right.
