Planar tracker error - invalid reference time

I'm new to Resolve, and this is surely a n00b problem, but I can't find the error when I google it. I am trying to set up a planar tracker following some online tutorials. I select a clip that I trimmed in the Edit window, I hop to Fusion, add a Planar Tracker, draw my polygon, then when I hit the Track to End button I get

"Track failed: invalid reference time. The reference time 0 must be within the render range (which is currently set to [2759,2896])"

My guess is that 2759 is the In point of my clip, is there some way to set this to 0 for Fusion?

You can set your reference time to be something other than 0.

For anyone who ends up here -- as far as I can tell this is happening because the area it's trying to track isn't working. I was trying to track a very small area and getting this error message. I expanded my points a good bit and it worked like a charm.
