You see all these colorful dots around here? These are track points that After…Effects has found to follow throughout the scene.…A lot of them may indeed work. Some of them may not work.…It's always a good idea to drag the Current Time Indicator through the shot and…see if any of those track points don't make sense.…For example, anything that's stuck to that Artbeats burn-in logo would not be…a good track point.…If I found any of these X's stuck on that burning, I would want to delete that track point.…
If you have other things moving through the scene that are not nailed down--car…driving through the scene, a boat in the harbor, bird flying by, a person walking…across the scene--you would also want to select any track points that follow…those rogue elements and delete those.…Again, you are not tracking an object in the scene;…you are tracking what the camera did to move through the scene.…And deleting a point is merely as simple as going ahead and selecting one of…these X's or Shift+Clicking multiple X's or even lassoing around multiple points…
