Alyssa BarrettCamera Tracking: What happens when the point goes out of the frame??

I am trying to use camera tracking and have an object I created with trapcode to move with the scene as the camera pans. I have a basic understanding of camera tracking. I know that I make the trapcode "follow" a point using the camera tracking data, but what happens when the camera pans and that point is not longer in the frame? Can I pick a new point for the effect to follow?

Is camera tracking the best tool to use for this?

Thanks!

Here is a shot of a piece of the footage I'm using.

It looks to me like the biggest issue with your footage are the cuts in it. You can't solve a camera across an edit. You'll have to solve each shot separately.
