Motion Tracking

The suggested reference points appear in the Canvas on the footage and in the magnified
inset as small red plus signs.

When you move a tracker toward a suggested point, the tracker snaps to the point.

The suggested points are not necessarily ideal tracking reference points for the feature
you want to track in the clip. Motion is merely picking locations in the current frame that
meet the track point criteria, such as an area of high contrast.
