The solving of a live action camera’s position and orientation. In a real-time scenario, these coordinates are sent to the engine enabling the equivalent virtual camera to move identically. There are a variety of tracking methods such as mocap markers, a SLAM tracking device on the camera, or encoding the crane/camera platform itself. Another use of this term refers to a similar process of deriving of the camera position from footage. This is often done in post, but can be done during production with the intent of driving an element shoot.
