VFX King Pin Traker: Fast, accurate planar tracking, right inside of After Effects
VFX King Pin Traker gives you fast, accurate planar tracking, right inside of After Effects. King Pin makes it simple to place signs or objects into a shot, even if they aren't simple rectangular shapes. With powerful To and From pins, and the ability to offset and rotate in planar space, you can pin whatever you want, wherever you want it.

Planar Tracking on Your AE Timeline

VFX King Pin Traker is a plug-in that brings the power of a planar tracker directly into Adobe After Effects. It's an easy to use tool in a familiar environment  — no need to step out of AE for great tracking results anymore. King Pin Tracker is incredibly fast and accurate, and can track surfaces in changing lighting, even as they leave the frame.

Easy Corner Pinning...and Much More

King Pin Tracker makes it simple to replace signs or add rectangular objects into a shot. But what if your object isn't rectangular, or has an alpha channel? What if there's nothing to track where you want to place your object? King Pin Tracker has you covered. With powerful To and From pins, and the ability to offset and rotate in planar space, you can pin whatever you want, wherever you want it.
Pinning signs and the like is just the beginning. In our work at Red Giant, we've used King Pin Tracker for applying digital makeup effects, removing unwanted objects from complex moving shots, prop replacement, and more. With high quality motion blur and a render engine that keeps layers sharp while avoiding moiré, King Pin Tracker makes it easy to composite your tracked objects believably.

Simple UI For Complex Work

King Pin Tracker's interface makes it easy to corner pin and track your footage.

Sign Replacement

King Pin Tracker is here to chew bubblegum and corner pin. And it's all out of bubblegum.


King Pin Tracker has been designed to include lots of features to make corner-pinning easier and faster than anything on the market.
Planar Tracker
King Pin Tracker's all new planar tracking technology is faster and more robust than any other tracker for After Effects.
Pin Any Shape
Corner pinning a non-rectangular object is nearly impossible in AE. But King Pin Tracker's From Pins let you choose the points in your object that you want as the basis of the pin, not just where they are pinning to. So you can grab a small area of your layer and pin that, and the rest of the image comes with it, including any masks or transparent areas.
Translate, Scale and Rotate
No need to pin your object where you track it. With easy to use translate, scale and rotate tools, you can easily reposition, resize and align your object after the track.
High quality sampling/anti-aliasing
King Pin Tracker features a new sampling algorithm that keeps layers sharp while avoiding moiré. There's even a control that allows you to adjust this balance of smooth vs. sharp rendering.
Motion Blur
King Pin Tracker renders fast, with high-quality motion blur that matches your After Effects comp settings.
Fast Track
King Pin Tracker gives you great results at incredible speeds. It's so fast, the After Effects comp window can't keep up with it, so we added our own window for you to see the results as they are happening.
