Sometimes it boils down to six of one, half dozen of the other.

As the Mocha trainers advise, you have to start thinking like an animator. Roto is cruel and unusual punishment at the best of times, so being strategic is key. If the objet you are trying to isolate is travelling too much or in less than ideal 2-D trajectories, then a blend of keyframe/track/manual is going to be the result. Watch your clip through. Where is the least amount of work? Make your shape for that, see how much the tracker can do for you, then start keyframing shape changes and re-tracking, until the errors grow too large again... Try to pick "tangent" targets that a sort of linear interpolation will take care of, and then iteratively trim out the largest departures along that track by inserting dynamics...

And, you know, make sure you're on the right node, that sort of thing...
