Dope Sheet View

Dope Sheet View.

The Dope Sheet View is used to visualize motion tracking data, it is implemented as separate view of the Movie Clip editor just like the Graph View.

It displays channels for selected tracks and each channel visualizes tracked segments of tracks as dark bars and keyframed positions of tracks as small diamonds.

The background is highlighted depending on the number of tracks in a frame. This means that if for a frame (or sequence of frames) there are less than eight tracks, the background will turn red; if there are from eight to sixteen tracks, the background will be yellow.

This is only a visual feedback, which doesnt mean that the camera motion will not reconstruct with less than eight tracks. It only means that you should pay attention to those frames and check if all possible good feature points are tracked there. Remember, if there are no good feature points in the frame and there are less than 16 tracks in the frame, it doesnt mean the solution wont be accurate. Rather, adding more tracks on bad feature points will reduce the accuracy of solution.


Sort order of the channels.

Show Only Selected (mouse cursor icon)

Limits Dope Sheet channels to only information about selected tracks.

Hidden (ghost icon)

Includes information from hidden tracks.

Sort Method

Sort order of the tracks.


Sort selected tracks in alphabetical order based on their names.


Sort tracks by longest tracked segment length.


Sort tracks by overall amount of frames.

Average Error:

Sort tracks by their average reprojection error after solving camera or object motion.

Start Frame:

Sort channels by first frame number.

End Frame:

Sort channels by last frame number.


To change the sort order from ascending to descending.


The Dope Sheet View is for visualization and does not have any tools to actually edit data.
