Anyone have any insight into the script-ability of running motion tracking analysis in the background, so I can click over to other applications and let it run? I've got dozens of HD shots that need to be tracked, and not being able to put AE in the background to let it do it's thing (each shot takes about 20 minutes to track) is sort of killing me.

Thanks-

...and what happens if your track goes south on you? You wouldn't know it until it's too late. It happens.

Using two monitors, I'd like to be able to run the track and leave it visible, but backgrounded, on one, so I can work in another application on the other. The points are pretty clear, and the tracks have been going smoothly; but I'd naturally like to keep an eye on them. If I see it go astray, I click back over and reset the points - but this is once an hour, at the most, with the tracks I'm working with.

It's just the necessity of having them in the foreground at all times that's the problem. If I so much as stray-click in the Finder I need to resume the track. It's just the sort of time-consuming automatic process that would be dreamy if it could be set to run and do it's thing without me taking hours out of the workday to watch it.

If this sort of thing is going to become a habit, you might look into a stand-alone tracking software such as Synth Eyes. Then you would get the added benefit of having 3d tracking too.
