Hello. Is it possible to track the motion of a shot then apply it to a masks path (position). I attempted to alt click on the stopwatch for the mask path and parent it to the position of a null opject which I applied the trackin data too but this did not work

It will work if you copy the mask to a solid that is the same H&V dimensions and pixel aspect ratio as the video. You then use your null trick, and use the solid as a track matte. It accomplishes the same thing.
