Hello guys!
I'm new to After Effects CC, and I honestly think I'm either:
A. Dumb
B. Oblivious
C. Weird
The idea is that I'm trying to keep a text stationary as the video moves around.
No matter whether I'm tracking in Mocha, or just the normal motion tracker in AE, it doesn't work for me. I track the motion of the video itself, it tracks beautifully. Then, I edit the target to my null, apply to x and y, etc.
For some reason, the text kind of shifts around slightly but to the point it's noticeable.
SOMEONE HELP PLZZZ!! ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!

Hi there,

There tends to be a lot of frustration when you first start with AE... but stick with it!

It's not entirely clear what you're trying to do, but I think you might find the 3D Camera Tracker tool more useful for this. Check out the tutorial from Adobe: http://tv.adobe.com/watch/learn-after-effects-cs6/3d-camera-tracker/

Cheers,
Jon

Here, I uploaded a video of what its doing but I wanna clarify something first.
I know the footage was shot fast and crappy but, even with other footage, that isn't so bad and moves so rapidly, it does the same thing.
The text shifts as the footage moves.
Here, see for yourself:

For this, 3D camera tracking would definitely be the quickest option I think. It's not obvious what the current problem is but I suspect the area to track is too small and the search area too big.

Hope that helps!
