- Sometimes you may find yourself creating a number…of pretty good tracks while you have difficulty completing…one that is both smooth…and continuous, so here we're going…to work on completing the shot…and we're going to incorporate a tool that can average…trackers together called TrackerViz.…So I haven't really worked on the second part…of this shot, the hat comes through and interrupts…this track point, let's try picking it up again.…
So prior to that,…it was set on that point there.…I will be very careful about how I set this,…and let's see if that's...…that's pretty close to where it should be.…So I'll just try tracking that.…
We can see it's very jittery and shaky.…And even if I offset it to something…that appears to be more visible,…I've got the same basic problem.…In fact, I've created some other tracks of the sofa…here at the end that I'll just reveal,…that are pretty good, so these three…you can see here, they're not all complete,…but if we look at them,…they came out OK, each one has its own flaws…but if we were to average them together,…
Here, Mark Christiansen shows how to use the five different After Effects trackers, customizing them to work best in the situations that motion graphics artists encounter most often. He covers the fundamentals, as well as opportunities to think outside the box, especially when an automated approach won't work.

- Recognizing trackable points
- Offsetting a tracker
- Applying the track to a matte
