How to track the bloat effect

I wanted to animate someones eyes bloating out but I need to know how to track the eyes. I thought I knew how but everything I try does not work and the bloat effect stays in one place, not good. Please advise.
Thanks,
Patrick Morrow

It's best that you show a before/after version of what you've done so that we can have a better idea of what the original shot looks like and the results you accomplished. Then, for completeness, let us know how you went about with the tracking routine - what you tracked, which software you used, what settings you used etc.

Hello,
I just want the bolated eyes to track the eyes in After Effects so they will follow the movement.

You have issues knowing how to track - never mind the bloated eyes for now. The required workflow to achieve what you want is two-fold -
1) track eyes
2) apply tracking data to bulge effect (or similar effect)

If you can't do (1) then you obviously will not be able to accomplish (2).

Please re-read my initial reply and provide the necessary information if you want specific assistance. Otherwise, you should take a look at the many tracking tutorials here at the COW.

As Roland has said, You should provide more info about the shot.

Though, Have a look at this tutorial:
