Hey guys, im reading in the manual, on the help, where ever...

How the hell do you get the tracker info back????

Ex: Ive tracked a Source so that a paint follows that source's mouvement...but after playing around something else i cant go back to my tracker dialog...where the hell do i re-activate my currect tracking...

Im really lost...

OK.. For those who DO NOT know what we are going to talk about, here is some background...

The idea behind a tracker is to follow and capture the movement of an on-screen feature. Next, we simply apply that data to another object(s) to change the position accordingly.

Where is the Tracker data? The Tracker data is always list in the Timeline UNDER the object that you were tracking...

For example, in the attached JPEG, I did a track of an AVI clip called "FeatureClip01." The tracking data then is listed under that clip...

I hope this answers your question...

does the 'source' button respond?...if so just put the clip back in...that should reactivate the tracker controls...

@Arctor and Jack: Thank you guys, ive finally found the way to get the Tracker Controls back.

For the others, the key is to be on the whole composite, then i select my driven layer and choose the source...and the controls are back!!!:thumbsup:

Coming from Shake to C2 is a bit weird...but im getting ok by now.

Later mates
