I have a problem motion tracking a panning camera in After Effects. The 2 main issues are:
1. When my points go offscreen the tracker behaves weirdly.
2. The trackers do not always stick to my chosen points despite being high contrast.
As a relatively new user, am I missing something? Is there a better/simpler way or settings to use?
This page has tons of useful stuff on motion tracking. It should help you figure out how to get a better track (contrast is not the only thing you need). This tutorial deals more specifically with motion tracking a pan. I think you will find several useful techniques there - not just for motion tracking.
