Hey guys:

Quick question. I've been trying to do a motion track to use Plexus and use lights as my tracking points. Whenever I parent my lights to the Null they seem to wander or drift. I've started copying the keyframes and applying them to position of the different lights.

Is there an easier way to do this and what am I doing wrong?

Learn from the pros and not some high school kid on YouTube who hasn't been around the block in effects work.
