Object tracking not working with PNG file

PostSat Aug 01, 2020 9:40 pm

I have a PNG file of an arrow with transparent background that I want to point at, and follow, a moving object. I followed this tutorial:



In a nutshell, this is what I did (from the video):

[*]Make compound clip of of the video with my moving object
[*]Select Point Tracker and create tracking data of my moving object
[*]Copy points
[*]Select PNG clip (which is above the video track with the moving object)
[*]Choose Classic Stabilizer and paste tracking data
[*]Click Stabilize

When I play the video after that, the PNG arrow doesn't track my object. It doesn't move at all. Is there something different about my PNG file than a text layer? The video uses a text layer to explain object tracking. Can I get this to work with my PNG arrow?

Thanks,
Jay
