This surface down here, when I play the clip, it's rotating kind of like a turntable. This is the kind of tracking target you would get if you had a camera orbiting something. So let's see how we might track this. I am going to go back to frame 1, draw an X spline around the perimeter and I am going to pull the corners nice and sharp, oops!
