Hello gurus!

I'm trying to analyze some moving objects I have on film but want to keep them centered. I've been manually keyframing the position to get this effect, but I'm sure there's an easier way. I also have tried using the tracking feature but it does not keep the object centered/stationary. For example, I have filmed a bird flying but I only want to watch how it flies without watching it move across the screen. I also have Mocha, but have not figured out how to accomplish this, yet.

Any advice?

Thanks,
Neal

The Warp Stabilizer VFX effect can be used to lock down a specific part of the scene.

Steve Forde shows hot to do that in the video by him linked to from here:
