    Crying [:'(] in mc using paint effect & tracking to clone(blur), not using keyframes correctly, please help

    Please help, i've watched a couple of tutorials, but I think I'm looking at the wrong ones... Yikes!!!!

    Using paint (clone) to blur license plate on a vehicle as the actor runs by it. The clone of the fender looks good, but I'm doing something wrong with the tracking part of it.

    I have mc 8.7.2 - the clip has two vehicles in it. Actor running by both. Trying to blur the license plate with a clone of the fender. I select clone, then square shape. Make the shape, put it over the license plate, then add trackers (two). I used the fluid tracker option.

    (I tried the correlation tracker first, but the clone shape moved a lot.)

    I put the two trackers just above the licence plate location, one to the left, and the other to the right.

    I started tracking with the fluid tracker option.

    The clone shape didn't stay in place. I tried using keyframes. For some reason I can't get how to use keyframes when animating or things are moving.

    Is there something I'm missing? Please help.

    Thank you.

    Sounds Good so far but are you making sure the keyframes are the tracking ones not the blur's properties?
