Idk how you track a rotating bottle, probably easier just to fake it using cc cylinder.

Wow, that's fast. Unfortunately, you didn't give yourself a very easy way to create the effect in the way you may expect. Other applications may be better suited for the task.

It's brighter on one one side of the bottle than the other. The edges aren't very well-defined because of the extremely-powerful light-wrap and blooming from the window light. The green on the bottle isn't consistent because of the changes in the lighting. There's lots of motion blur to deal with. I guess those are tracking marks on the green label, but there are droplets of liquid on top of them which I imagine you want to preserve.

Thank goodness it's only 19 frames... but since it's almost a 360-degree arc -- and so fast -- it's like working in Photoshop, with 19 different stills.

What can you tell us about the details about this shot to help us give you a fighting chance of success? It may turn out that each frame will have to be a custom compositing job because each frame is so different.
