Hi! So, I've successfully got AE to track a face and it has points on every frame. However, most of them didn't end up where I wanted them. I need to move a bunch around on each frame. The actor doesn't move much, so it would be so helpful if I could just take the points from frame 385 for example and copy/paste those points to the exact same spot on frame 386. I've tried selecting all the point and just doing a standard ctrl c/ctrl v and sometimes it puts the points in the wrong spot, and another time it messed up all the points on every frame. So was wondering if this is even doable, or do I have to go in to hundreds of frames and correct the points manually? When I copy/paste it also keeps the frames looking very similar, which is very hard when I move things manually. Thanks!

**EDIT** Figured it out. Was trying to mouse select all the points and copy/paste to the next frame... But you're supposed to copy/paste the keyframe only. :)
