I find you have to change opacity AND the window shape in order to really make this work effectively. A lot depends on the specific situation: I had a case not long ago where I had to light an actor's face as they were peering out from an opening door. In that case, the window moved from being very narrow to being "face-shaped" as the door opened. It was amazing how well that worked, truly getting a keylight in a place where no keylight was really possible.

Tricks like this don't always work, but when they do, it's fantastic.

If I had to start or stop tracking mid-clip, I think the advice to manually cut it in half is a good strategy. You can always "undo" the split but retain the tracking afterwards, if you want to be a stickler on preserving the edit timeline.
