Brandon SmithFixing 2 Seconds of Tracking. [Foundry - Camera Tracking Plugin]. Don't know where to start.

I created this in After Effects yesterday:





Plugin: Foundry Camera Tracker.

Notice that at around the 0:07 second mark, the 2D Neon Light wiggles a bit. The reason for this (I believe) is that my chosen tracking point moves off screen and is no longer visible. The problem is that from the first frame, there is no way to have one continuous tracking point.

I've tried manually adjusting the tracking path but have had nothing but problem after problem. If I could see the positional track created by the plugin, I might be able to fix those last few frames from wiggling and looking unnatural. If there is a way to create a new point-of-reference tracker to sort of "hand off" from the first tracked point, that would be better so I know it'll be smooth. I tried to remove the tracking points created after the primary tracking point went off-screen in hopes that the "wiggle" would be stopped, but that didn't fix anything.

If you see a way how to fix it, please let me know. I'm relatively new to After Effects so if you wouldnt mind being gentle LOL!

Any tips appreciated. Thx!
