I've done this before and cannot get it to work now.
I precomposed my footage first, then added tracker to layer/precomp. It calculated and shows track points but NO TARGET appears, only a semi-transparent shape between various points. Okay, I just went ahead and selected multiple points on the surface I want my footage applied to. Then, when I select add solid and camera, a solid layer appears in the layers panel, but NO SOLID in the comp window. From there, I have tried to ctrl/drag my footage onto the solid, and nothing works.
