I solved a rather long scene in After Effects for camera tracking. Later, I realized that the tracking point I chose "jumped" out of its stable position for a split second. This only became apparent after I had attached a graphic to that point.

Re-doing the analyze/solve steps is rather time consuming. I was wondering if the tracking data for the point I have chosen is accessible and whether it is possible (and easy) to edit out the offending data point/points.

By the way, if I got what you mean you just have to move with the Selection Tool the keyframe on the Composition screen.

For making the path smoother and more accurate the sub-Pen Tool called Convert Vertex Tool.

Finally, on the timeline thanks to Graph Editor, add dynamicity to the animation in-between frames (delay and advance).

  • Yes, automatically I think you can just change the parameters of the tracer (that I'm sure you tried). If omething "jump" usually are few frame, otherwise you should change the point to track because that is not good. Commented Jul 25, 2016 at 23:18
