Now I'm no expert with AE, obviously. But I've never found a program so unfriendly to work with in all my life. I know FCP proficiently and have found the learning curve to understanding AE similar to comparing scuba diving to sky diving. I have "Wasted" hundreds of hours trying to make sense of this program.... and yet I feel I it is the best program to do what I am trying to do. I am trying to stabilize a video about 12 minutes long. The camera was locked off so it's not a lot of movement, just a few bumps on the tripod. Simple right? First off, the stabilizer in the program is crap, not to say I've found a good one elsewhere. I've tried messing with the options, but I can't get it to work effectively. It works for a little bit but the tracker always wanders. No problem, after wasting a few days of my life trying to understand how to get it to operate correctly I decided since in this case it's only a few small bumps I will do it manually frame by frame readjusting the keyframes manually. I've performed 3 corrections successfully. Well I think so considering I have to export the entire sequence before I can even see it. But I "Think" it worked. Now I've been attempting a 4th correction and all hell broke loose. It looks at first like I did it correctly. Created a "tracker 4", stablize with position, rotation, and scale. Since the scene changed a little I selected a new feature/search region. Performed frame by frame analysis. Okay, looks good. Click on "apply" and WWHHHAAAAAAT?!? There is a stupid little box with crosshairs in it near the top of my frame that has now drawn a dotted line to where my new feature/search region is on my first tracker.. Needless to say when I preview the area (frame by frame because this wonderful program can't do it realtime) my entire frame moves around. Now some of you pro's are laughing. Because I KNOW this is simple. But I've wasted 4 hours trying to figure out what is going on and why it didn't happen the other 3 times I successfully stabilized. Can someone PLEASE help me understand what the HECK is going on!?!?!?! I don't know why or what the little box with crosshairs is for, what it's doing there, and why it hasn't bothered me before until now. Can I get rid of it? I DON'T WANT IT!
