I am literally tearing my air out with this. I am simply trying to replace part of the signage (the original text) with my own. I have 3D tracked the footage and have the NEW text tracked perfectly, but can I get rid of the original sign text?.. NO!

I have tried Mocha (no idea what I am doing), masking, camera tracking tool and as soon as I am in 3D space things go crazy. Can anyone point me in the direction of a good tutorial? Is Mocha my only hope? Corner pinning seems to be the thing I need to utilise but I cannot work it out.

Attached is the frame which includes the original signage and new text on top. I can make a solid work and track without too much difficulty but I want to (ideally) include the top part of the original sign (the "Eastgate" title)..

Solved. With some bending, shaping and resizing it's now tracked to the 3D tracker null and is looking ok....
