I shot a lot of green screen footage in motion not realizing that I would need tracking markers put on the screen. Is there any program that can help save my rear end to make a static photo be in motion with it? I'm in panic mode.

You can't track if you don't have any features to get the movement from. Animate the background manually.

if you can see the edge of the green screen at all, it might provide a reference point.

Also, if there's any variation in the green screen lighting, you might be able to use it as a fix.

it might be worth playing with the warp stabilizer as this can stabilize the moving person and may give the affect you're wanting.

I agree with Tero -- animate the background by hand. The chances aren't too bad you can get pans & tilts right. Maybe zooms, too. Primary camera movement will be tougher.

To see how to set up trackers for chroma key, take a look at hollywoodvfx.com.
