When using warp stabilizer, there's the option of ticking the box to show the track points - so you can scrub through your footage and delete the ones on objects you don't want stabilized, making the process more accurate.
However, this is time consuming as, for instance, if you have a moving object in one part of the screen that you want to exclude from being tracked, you have to repeatedly delete tracking points from it as they keep spawning on it further down the time line.
Does anyone know a way of selecting an area to exclude from tracking for the entire length of the clip?

You can precompose the footage to be tracked, then cover the moving object in the shot with a shape or solid, then stabilize the precomp. When done, duplicate the precomp layer for safety, turn off its visibility and use the replace footage command on the visible precomp, substituting the original, non-covered footage.
