I know AE is strictly post, but are there any modern options for motion tracking live on a marked greenset?

Yes! And it's EXTREMELY pricey!

You know how they impose the line of scrimmage and first down lines on the field during televised football games? That system can do live tracking... and keying, to boot.

The downsides: it's hardware-only, it takes about a day for four experienced network engineers to set it up, and the system's price tag runs very deeply into six figures.

But yes, you can do it in real time.
