Matching layer motion by applying tracker data

We have come up with a good motion path by applying the Tracker to the footage. We have tracked that X on the piece of tape as it travels through the scene. As soon as you feel that you have created a good motion path, and it's accurate, you can apply that data to a different layer, and therefore activate the actual motion tracking. In this project, we're going to apply the data to the Render layer, which is the nested version of that spyglass all combined. Before we apply the data however, we have to do one additional step in this composition to make this work. I need to go to the Matte layer, go to the Parent menu, and change it to Render.

I want the Matte layer to follow the Render automatically. The Render layer is going to get the motion data. However, I don't want to apply the data second time to the Matte layer. So what I can do to save time is simply change its Parent menu to follow the Render layer automatically. So now we're ready to try to apply the data. I am going to go...
