Keep Object Centered on Track Point

I want to position my footage inside of a graphic but keep it centered on a track point. The tracking in DaVinci Resolve is great but I cannot figure out how to position it to get the footage to move so that the tracked object is always centered. Is there a way to do this? Here is an example of what I want to do using motion tracking in After Effects:

I f you have to do it in Resolve... up to now at least, this would be the conceptual reverse of a smoothing/stabilize function. I don't know if the Resolve stabilizer will be able to keep up with something as small as the ball as fast as it is travelling, though. Really, it is just about locking onto the ball, using a tracking constraint or setting a manual region or point of interest.

Maybe there are some plug in FX in the bag of tricks -- most of those don't have great access to adjacent frames, which you need to predict the motion.

For this, you need to use something with more precision like Mocha. Resolve's tracking is great for what it is, but it's not ideal for motion graphics. After Effects or Fusion could do it to a point.

How to do it in current version of Fusion what has been integrated in Resolve?

I was able to use tracking window to perfectly match object's move, but do not know how to use tracking data to translate picture.

Fusions tracker should offer all the tools needed to stabalize and then un-stabalize the shot.

After you track it, go to your operations tab and turn on stabilize. ( BG only?)

Do what every effect you are trying to achieve....take that node and plug it into both inputs on a copy of your original tracker. Set it to FG only, and you should have your original motion back.

You may need a transform after that to reposition the shot to fill the screen again.
