Hi
I have a stabilize tracked layer.

I need to extract corner pin tracking data from this layer( a brick wall that changes perspective) to another layer (to match the changing perspective)

Whats the best way to do this? Do I need to precompose the stabilize tracked layer first BEFROE extracting corner pin data or...?

The general rule of thumb is to motiontrack the raw source footage, to avoid mangling the pixels before tracking.

So in that case what you'd do is corner-pin track the source footage, comp in your elements and then stabilize the endresult.

But depending on the footage you could also try to corner-pin track the stabilized result - it's just a less clean workflow.

I'd advise you to do the tracking in MochaAE.
