Hi Steve,

If this is the problem that I think it is, then you need to force FCP to play every frame. To do this, make the timeline the current selection by clicking on it and then go to Mark>Play>Play Every Frame.

I hope this helps.

Peter.

Hi Steve,

Just for the sake f clarity, you should have followed these steps:

• apply witness protect filter to clip
• double click the clip to display it in the source and record monitor
• go to the filters tab
• enable track on the fly
• reposition the motion tracker target over the pixels that you want to follow
• select mark>play>play all frames

at this point the motion tracker should be tracking the object

Please follow these instructions and let me know how you make out.

Cheers,

Peter.

The minute I turn on Track-on-the-Fly the Canvas goes black. I have it sized to 100% as instructed. Never tracks after that.

Okay - send me the exact version numbers of FCP and BCC that you are using and I'll see if this will provide more information so aid in solving the problem. Is this happening with other filters that include a motion tracker, such as the Rays filters? Also, please post your machine specs (go to about this Mac and include the Hardware Overview and the Graphics Displays info.)

Thanks,

Peter.

Hi Steve,

Well you're on Leopard and you're using a version of BCC that predates that OS by at least 18 months. You're also using the AE version of the BCC filters in FCP 5, which is not officially supported. Might be time for an upgrade. I'd suggest downloading the latest version and seeing if that solves the issue.

Hope this helps,

Peter.
