Sorry for the bad English.

I try to track in the AfterEffect two green markers on a green background, as it was done in hollywoodcamerawork (http://www.hollywoodcamerawork.com/green-screen-plates.html - Pan / Tilt / Roll With Two Markers), but I can not camera tractor Does not track the marker. Tried to change the settings RGB / Lumenanse / Saturation does not help.

Question: I'm doing something wrong or
for example I made —Ćask on the red channel for markers, and track it.

I would like to of course do such things with one button.

One button? That ain't happenin'.

Try keying out just the green track marks. Put a red solid below them. You might have better luck. And of course, once you have the track you can do the key for real.

Sorry, one button meant tracking the tracker, without highlighting one channel. In the option the tracker, there is a choice of RGB / Luminance. I think it's just that I'm doing something wrong and / or it's AE's fault.
Tried to switch the project from CuDa to Software, but the Tracker constantly flies from the marker.

You may have to misadjust the video to create a distinction between track marks & background, then track.
