Suppose I have a drone video not properly shot, but the subject is always in the frame but not a constant point. Now, I want to crop that 16:9 drone video to a 4:5, and have the subject always in the centre of the video frame.

Is this equal to motion tracking or, perhaps, the reverse application of motion tracking? How would I go about this?

  • Manual motion tracking in After Effects will do the trick, but it's work. That's why you always want to have or get the best quality footage: "we'll fix it in post" costs time, pain, and money. – CyanideBaby Apr 18 '19 at 13:06

To my knowledge there is no build in function to do that. Either you could do it by hand with key frames, buy a plugin or maybe better use Apple Motion.
