May have something to do with your trackers, but you don't show us the panel. sometimes this simply happens when one of the options is active for anotehr tracker...
Trackers 1&2 were for the stabilization.
Tracker 3 is for the object.
AE will not allow me to edit target to my obkect and when i do the tracking for the object it is tracking a clip that does not take into account that i have already stablized the clip.
I had thought to pre-comp it and then create a new tracker for the object. I think by pre comping it the stabilization would be baked in and i would only be dealing with the tracking for the object.
Ok here is what had to happen for me.
I did the stabilization 1st and rendered out a video from AE.
Then imported the stabilized clip and tracked the object in the linked composition.
Then saved and quit and there it was in PPro as desired.
I do not think that AE can stabilize and track the same layer. You have to bake the stabilization and then track the object.
Pre-composing might have sufficed, too... Well, whatever, glad you worked it out
i tried the precomposing option and still the shot was not taking into account that the clip had been stabilized.
Your workflow is fouled up. You want to track the shot first so you have the most data to track. Attach your text to the track, then pre-compose the shot and text and stabilize the pre-comp.
The only other option would be to stabilize the shot, render the stabilized shot to a production format, then track and add the text.
Yep i took option 2.
But if you track the object in the clip with a clip that has not yet been stabilized the tracking info will be inccorrect for the intended target. When i precomp a tracked clip and right click to load that clip as a layer, it comes in without the stabilization info.
You misunderstood the instructions. You track first. You then add in the layer you want to apply the track to. Now you have a comp with the object tracked to the shot and they should be locked toether.
You Nest that comp in a new one, or Precompose both the footage and the object. Now you stabilize the entire nested (pre-composed) comp. That's the workflow that I would follow. It gives you the most options.
