In order to track something the footage needs areas of hight contrast to follow and calculate the degree to which that point is moving.

The problem with my shots in my ast module was there were no high conrtast points to track from.

If i had known before that the footage would need to be tracked I would have put some tracking dots on the green screen, it would have been so simple if a had just added a few, but I had never composited before so i didn’t know.

There is a lot more to motion tracking, this is just a basic understanding to allow me to prep footage for tracking in post.
