I have a shoot some footage of a firefly standing still on a wall at night and blinking every half a second or so. The result is very shaky including some sharp pan movements. Its mostly very dark with just the blinking spots visible.
If I could center the video over the blinking spot it might look nice.
Its possible for me to use a transform effect strip, and create position keyframes at the blinks in order to center them throughout the video. However, creating position frames in that way isnt very intuitive, and requires entering X and Y values manually.
So I wondered if instead of using the transform effect layer it would be easier to somehow use manual tracking with a marker in the Video Clip Editor. I tried it but didnt know how to create keyframes for my manually positioned marker (keyframes are auto created when Im using the "track selected markers"). What parameter/channel should I highlight in order to create a keyframe? Is there a better method for doing this task?
