Dillon FelberTracking Problem Adobe After Effects

Hi, I was testing out tracking by using a picture frame and puting a video within the frame, using tracking in after effects. The track worked well after some adjustments. After that, I applied the track to a null object so that I can parent the other video clip to the null. The clip goes with the null but 3 or 4 quick times within the track, the null flips one way and then another, so at those random spots the clip inside the frame goes upside down, or sideways etc...

why is it doing this/any suggestions to fix it?

is this a tracking test for you? Why not just precomp in the video inside the frame and parent whatever you need to that.....

Yes this is a tracking test for me...How would I precomp the video inside the frame? I do the tracking and click "Edit Target" and select to use a Null, or the video- and either way, it rotates randomly but the position and scaling is correct...

Thanks-still new to using after effects

I couldn't understand the situation exactly (my Eng. is not so good)but I think the problem is caused by parenting. Try parenting position of the layers not the layers. Then, in my opinion your problem will be solved. and have you tracked your frame position or position-rotation? may be you should try just position.
