Track Finger Movements for After Effects on Your iOS Device

Caleb Ward

With trackFinger you can ‘easily’ track your finger movements and place them in After Effects.

As first reported by ProVideoCoalition, the Italian company Exmachina recently unveiled the latest in mobile motion graphic technology: trackFinger.

Instead of using motion sketch and a mouse or trackpad, why not use your iPad or iPhone to track your finger movements? With trackFinger users can record finger movements on their mobile iOS device (sorry Android users!) and upload that information into After Effects. TrackFinger records finger movements from your mobile device and emails the tracked information to be copied the clipboard so you can easily impress all your motion graphic friends.

The app features:

  • Multiple project handling and track list
  • Finger tracking with variable tracks per second.
  • Fully customizable user interface.
  • Online tutorials and resources
