Lots of movies labeled as "Missing" despite manually pointing Radarr to them.
I tried letting Radarr just do its thing, but so many movies are labelled as missing! So even after I went in and directly showed it where the file is, it still can't find many of them. One of these movies for example is Riddick. I put Riddick on my server before I got Radarr so the naming scheme was funky. I understood that it might have a hard time finding this one. So I clicked Edit and showed it the path. Then I refreshed that movie and... "Missing". What am I missing here?
Radarr is very particular about its naming scheme. For me, Radarr automatically renamed all of my media files. But it did NOT rename the folders. I was just going to point it to the folder where the stuff was, but that wasn't working. Turns out, it didn't have the permissions to move things the way it wanted. So I renamed all the folders how it wanted. It took me quite a while, but I eventually finished and now only the titles that I really don't have in there are labelled as "missing" now.

3d camera tracker with manual points?
Hey guys, I'm getting back into after effects after a couple years, to work on a short film I shot.
We were pretty ambitious with what we thought we could do in after effects and rented out a greenscreen studio for a day. the footage looks pretty good, and I think it'll key pretty well, so I'm really excited to work on it. I'm trying to work on a scene that's essentially three actors in a green screen 'office' (everything is green screen, and there's a 'desk' that will all be keyed out and replaced with a cgi office). I'm getting back into after effects and on the latest cc, and I'm having a hard time getting the camera tracker to track the footage. I realize the green screen is probably pretty hard to track, but we did put up some tape track points. I now realize they probably weren't enough, but I'm wondering if there's a way to manually choose track points for a 3d camera tracker, or something of the likes. I may just have to 'guess' the camera movement (it's a pretty small camera pan on a slider, not huge or jerky motion) which would probably work for the short clips that i'm doing and the 'lo-fi / cheesy effects' kind of look, but I'd like to do it right if at possible.
Anyone got any tips for doing green screen camera tracking?
