I have a small dilemma on my hands.

I need to do some vfx on a trailer which will include a lot of motion tracking.

The files I have now are transcoded to 1080. The files that I'll receive at a much later date will be 3k files.

I'm wondering if there's a kind of online/offline process I can use with in AE.

Can I do my motion tracking and vfx work with the 1080 files and then substitute in the 3K????

I wouldn't do it: the motion track on higher-resolution files will almost always be more precise than in HD.

Dave is right, as always, but...
Depending on the detail and result needed. You could resize your 1080 stuff to whatever the size of your 3K files will be for finish, and then track those and the data can be applied to your null or however you apply it to the HD stuff when going to the 3K. If your 3K files are going to be transcoded to a 1080 size prior to ingest and for the final, then you will be fine, but Dave is still right.

Thanks, people. That's basically what I suspected.
