Debbie KingCan't Camera Track in an Adjustment Layer

Hello Everyone:

I am wondering if someone can help me with this. I am trying to cover the background where lights are shown as a reflection in a scene. This is what I've done so far.

1. I rotoscoped the people in front of the object I want to cover. That worked out fine.
2. I created an adjustment layer and masked the area that I want covered.
3. This is where the problem began. As long as the camera didn't move, I was find, but when the camera moved so did the mask. So, I attempted to track the mask, but it fell out of alignment and wouldn't stay on track.

Does anyone have any ideas on how I may be able to cover an object behind the actors and still have it track on the movement of the camera? BTW. The camera tilts upward as the actors begin to stand after sitting.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best,

Debbie

Mask on a Solid placed over the original footage - set its transparency to 0 while masking. Then nest this comp and track the bested comp.
