Let's say I 2D-stabilize a movie clip.

From frame 0 to 90 I use marker1 & marker2.

At frame 90 I loose marker1, but I get a new one: marker3.

If I simply add all markers to the 2d-stabilization, it will make a sudden jump at frame 90 when loosing the data of marker1 because of the average location of all markers changed.

How can I let the stabilizer know that starting at frame 91, the whole location of the footage is reconsidered based on where marker2 was at frame 90 after being stabilized.

In order words, how to keep the stabilization smooth when loosing/gaining markers?

And as an extra, I also use Rotation Stabilization ;)

Thank you!

    $\begingroup$ You could offset the marker: blender.stackexchange.com/questions/28785/… $\endgroup$ – p2or Jul 28 '15 at 18:17
  • $\begingroup$ I see, thank you. But if the marker just never reappears, that cannot work. $\endgroup$ – FlorianB Jul 28 '15 at 21:39
  • $\begingroup$ you can offset the tracker to track something that is in the same plane as the original. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jul 28 '15 at 23:44
  • $\begingroup$ Yes but in practice it's very inaccurate. What I'm looking for is a way to switch from marker to marker smoothly. Basically, imagine that you are filming the landscape from the side of your car for 5 minutes. $\endgroup$ – FlorianB Jul 29 '15 at 2:37
