Okay
So im doing this project and im trying to motion track a clock.
What i have done is, done a hour half time laspe of the clock and i want to track the minutes hand. When i do so the tracker moves up and down along the whole thing and im not sure why. The minute hand is jet black but it wont stay where i chose it to.
Help would be very much appriated.
Thanks in advance
Jonathan

[Jonathan Laws] "What i have done is, done a hour half time laspe of the clock and i want to track the minutes hand"

The important question: how did you do the time lapse?
And just for clarity's sake do you mean an hour, a half-hour or an hour and a half time lapse?




[Jonathan Laws] "The minute hand is jet black but it won't stay where I chose it to. "

Wait a minute -- if you do a time lapse properly, this clock hand's will appear accelerated, and in a predictable position. Why are you trying to change that by putting the hand it in some particular spot at an arbitrary time?

Plus two more bits of information that would be good to know: what version of AE are you running, and what kind of clock footage did you shoot? What's the codec?
