Jonty M SextonSpotlight POI follows motion path??

In a talking head interview, I have placed a spotlight in post on the subject's face. He moves around quite a lot, and I have tracked his movement using AE's motion tracker.

For the life of me, I cannot remember how to instruct the spot's POI to follow the motion path - ergo move with the subject.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

COnvert the tracked layer to a 3D layer. Then copy the tracked layer's position property and paste it into the Spotlight's POI property - or simply pickwhip the target property to the source property to create an Expression link.
