Noel MartirReplacement of Cylindrical Label

A client is asking me to replace a label on a bottle of theirs with a new one.

What I did the first time around was to put the label into a comp with some extra transparent space on the left and right so that it would match the radius of the bottle. I track the bottle's small movements with the motion tracker, and manually track with big movements and when the bottle is motion blurred. I put a CC Cylinder effect on the comp then match the bottle movements per frame.

CC cylinder is kinda limited in that the label doesnt always fit or aligned with the original label, so I have to roto mask again per frame.

This technique has worked so far, but I was wondering if there are better ways to go about it? The process is time consuming and most of the time even if I follow the bottle movements frame to frame perfectly the overall output isnt perfect.
