Motion tracking with Movie Edit Pro, Movie Studio or Video Pro X

In this tutorial I attach a title to a moving object within a scene in a video clip, other objects such as video and images can also be made to track.

The main requirements for a successful track are that there must be a good contrast area to attach the object to, and the tracking box must be big enough to allow for movement of the tracked object.

Setting the tracking object to the same length as the tracked scene is not essential, however the tracked scene must be longer than the tracking object.

Updated 7th April 2022 - for Movie Edit Pro/Movie Studio 2022 and Video Pro X 13 changes to the Size and Position feature.

В этом примере я прикрепляю заголовок к движущемуся объекту в сцене в видеоклипе.

Основными требованиями для успешного отслеживания являются наличие хорошей контрастной области для прикрепления объекта, и поле отслеживания должно быть достаточно большим, чтобы можно было перемещать отслеживаемый объект.

Установка объекта отслеживания на ту же длину, что и отслеживаемая сцена, необязательна, однако отслеживаемая сцена должна быть длиннее объекта отслеживания.

I did it as it is written in the help section “Attach to the position of the image in the video”, but the text cannot go beyond the edges of the screen, why? The anchor point goes beyond the edge of the screen, and the text attached to it does not disappear.
