I do a 3D camera track but I go with the cursor to the video and I havent got that red cycle! Pls help me!

Moritz Clus says:

Is there Anything one could do if the Step “Solving Camera” is taking litrally hours of time? My Footage is 50s long and contains a rather complicated Camera Slide. So is there any chance that AE CC will finish this step after enough time or should i try with overlapping smaller parts of the video? Thanks in Advance !

Biosystem Studios says:

Is there a way we can use this to add an artificial depth of field blur? For instance in a game that doesn’t have it, recorded some footage and used the 3D camera tracker?

Will this work with Adobe After Effects CC?  I’m looking to do some simple text in my video, but I don’t want to buy.  I figured with this tutorial, I can get a month subscription to Ae CC and do what I need to and be done with it.
