I'm working with AE CS4 on a macbook pro 10.5. When I apply my motion tracker to the shaky footage the anchor points do not counter against the tracking points, thus no stabilization occurs. For example, the feature center point of the tracker goes up 20 pixels on the y axis from frame 1 to frame 2. The Anchor Point y axis goes up 20 pixels on the y axis also, thus not countering the tracker. The motion tracking is solid. If I manually adjust y axis anchor point I achieve stability between frame 1 and 2... and so forth. Am I missing something? My footage is a time-lapse sequence exported as a .mov from final cut pro. Please advise. Thank You.
It sounds like you might have clicked the "Track Motion" button -- you want to click the "Stabilize Motion" button in the tracker instead.
