If you're just doing 2d tracking, AfterEffects has rather effective 2d tracking within the software. Search the AE help for more information about it

A quick google I found this as well, http://www.simplycg.net/viewtopic.php?t=2027

cheers!

yeah, I agree, you should be able to track most 2D things just fine in AE.

but, if PFTrack is anything like Syntheyes, you might just be able to copy/paste the individual track right into AE.
