I wrote before asking advice about this, but lost the answer. Anyway, I'm doing a poltergeist scene in a short movie and need dishes and silverware to fly on their own. Problem is, the camera needs to be handheld, as it's a being 'documented'. I don't think visionlab can do this, but am unsure. Can Aftereffects accomplish this? Does anyone know how I could pull this effect off? Thanks.

Well, if you rig the dishes and such on wires, you won't need to worry about it, you can shoot it handheld. If you want to take the trickier path and do it in post, film it on a tripod, then add the shake in post.

After Effects can do camera tracking.
