Problem solved !!!!

there are two ways to solve this problem, if you have a clean background plate, you can use

Autodesk Photofly, the results can be a little ropey. its designed for a object at a fixed nodal point.

The second similarish program is to use Arcsoft panorama maker 5. My footage was not suitable to use. However test footage worked out fine.

The second way is the hard way and if you have ever worked in animation you will have the patience for it. You need to render out the frames in jpeg/tiff/png format then hand stitch them together, you need to remember it will not be in a straight line, the image will build up as a curve.

Once done apply a stroke to all the layer images this will work as your place holder. The idea is to set the composition up in after effects, matching the orignal frame rate and screen size. Then set your image on the last frame, using auto tween/keyframe move it along to the first frame and move it into position. Now is the hard part, you need to hand animate along the timefram the position.

Tip which I did not do and that is to put a frame number into the image place holder, the idea is to move to keyframe 034, and then move the place holder matte to placeholder 034.

you will need to adjust your bezier curves in your timeline. to smooth out the motion.

Once done, you can go back into the psd, turn off your frame numbers and stroke, and paint in your matte over the background shot.

Once done all you need to do is copy and paste the position data of the place holder matte and transfer that to your finished matte.

You should then have a matched background to the original moving shot.

the reason I did it this way is because in the middle of frame cover 65% of the image was an aircraft.

Love to show the results. But with lots of patience and time you can do this.

Cheers Rich
