Track appears to "drift" when using Adobe Mocha.

Hi, i have been practising tracking objects for the past 2 weeks using Mocha with After Effects but have had a re-occuring problem and can't seem to avoid it.

When i try to track matte painted objects to appear in a background location, a noticable amount of drifting occurs. I have tried tracking far away objects and numerous other methods and none have prooved to work.

I'm not entirely sure what i might be doing wrong, i have checked that the video interlacing spec's match one another, which they do.

Any tips will be greatly recieved.

Thanks all!

If you can upload the video, we can see whether the problem is with the footage or the tracking procedure. What about the track in Mocha, is it fine there or the problem occurs when you paste the data in AE? Have you tried adjusting the track?

Your question is too general for anyone to offer you any assistance. As a starter, you will do well to answer Vishesh's questions.
