    Nicely done, good tutorial.
    Filming real hand held footage with plenty of tracking markers set up, tracked and then applied to your footage is a great alternative.

    Very helpful tutorial, thanks Keith! I am going to implement this technique in my new short film this summer! vfxhauku ftw!

    At the end when you say you can animate the parameters… Could you put a shake on the shake parameters, or am I trying to divide by zero here? :)

    Hey Midge, Yes any of the parameters are animatable, so I don’t see any reason you wouldn’t be able to apply a shake function to the functions within the shake modifier. I don’t have fusion in front of me, so I can’t test this right now, but it sounds like that would work. :)
