How could I track an object onto someone's hand using green screen point markers?
Hello, so I am currently planning a short film. We have not filmed it yet, but I have run into a problem. I have bought the particle simulator addon for Hitfilm Express and created a glowing orb. I have tested this a few times by tracking it onto my hand facing left or right (which works) but when I rotate my hand in front of me -or my other hand moves behind the hand I am tracking- it finds it difficult to track.
I was wondering whether there is another way (instead of myself tracking it frame by frame when it gets difficult) by using green screen point markers so it wouldn't get confused. I would think that it would have to be a stationary shot and I would need a still of the background. The only problem is that I think it would also cover part of my hand or my body when I move my hand in front of myself, which means that I would have to mask over it otherwise it would look like I have a hole in myself. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I could track my hand moving around using a point marker or something else? Thanks
