This script is useful for rotoscopying or working with moving elements on matchmoved scenes.
This kind of .ascii text files look like this:
    1.0 : +470.67, +341.00
    2.0 : +470.16, +339.89
    3.0 .....

where "1.0" is the frame number, "+470.67" the x track position and "+341" the y track position.

Run this script. A floater window will appear.
Select an .ifl sequence of your tracked footage. (you can create it with Rendering/RAM player tool)
Select an .ascii text file exported from Flame or Combustion.
You can select an additional track (each track has its own .ascii file)
You can select a camera in the scene. (*Must be a FREE camera, Target cameras are not valid)
Press "build"
A plane textured with your tracked footage and 2 trackpoints will be created and aligned to your camera.
2 additional trackpoints labeled "zdepth" will be created. Those can be moved or animated towards/away the
camera through their local X axis keeping a valid 2D Track.
