I was required to help the Layout artists debug the motion capture tracking for a number of shots where there was sudden anomalies in the solve. These anomalies tended to be be the result of euler 'flips' as objects rotated more than 180 degrees. Once we were aware of the issues we could monitor and manage the tracking solver.

I was also required to provide tools to the lighting team to create automatically create an inner wall of the bottles for refraction, and to help debug problematic assets and set-ups of scenes and as well as pipeline issues.
