I'm unable to add Tracks For Location or Tracks For Rotation / Scale in v2.79. The + button is greyed out. Why would that be?

2D stabilization panel

I opened my video file in the Movie Clip Editor, added a few markers, tracked them, ticked Display Stabilization and 2D Stabilization and Autoscale.

It was suggested in the comments that I should click first "solve". None of the video tutorials that I saw on YouTube indicated that I should so that, though. I ticked "Tripod" under "Solve" and then clicked "Solve Object Motion". It made no difference.

  • $\begingroup$ You can only add the currently active/selected tracks. Make sure that you have selected something $\endgroup$ – 3pointedit Mar 27 '18 at 20:56
  • $\begingroup$ They are selected. Could it have something to do with the tracking settings for each marker? $\endgroup$ – rudolfbyker Mar 27 '18 at 21:03
  • $\begingroup$ Upload the file to blend-exchange. $\endgroup$ – Leander Mar 27 '18 at 21:57
  • $\begingroup$ Have you performed a solve yet? Even a tripod solve $\endgroup$ – 3pointedit Mar 28 '18 at 1:47
  • $\begingroup$ I added the blender file and performed the solve. No change. $\endgroup$ – rudolfbyker Mar 28 '18 at 6:37

The only tracks created for camera can be used for stabilization.

enter image description here

  1. Select markers and copy them Ctrl+C
  2. Select (in N side properties panel): Objects -> Camera
  3. Paste markers here Ctrl+V
  4. Now you can use copied markers for stabilization
  • $\begingroup$ So there are different types of tracks. Good to know. $\endgroup$ – rudolfbyker Mar 28 '18 at 6:55
