The User Guide has all this information.

Online, visit the Adobe After Effects Help pages here and read the Animation and Keyframes section. As an example, the Track Camera page says:

3D camera tracker effect

The 3D camera tracker effect analyzes video sequences to extract camera motion and 3D scene data. The 3D camera motion allows you to correctly composite 3D elements over your 2D footage.
