Is the motion tracking in VEGAS pro 18 just garbage?

I don't know what the problem is. I know the process for tracking was more tedious in 16, but then it at least worked a lot better. Yeah it wasn't great, but it was OK. In 18 you got this nice little button you click, you have a new menu, but then it wont freaking track. I've tried over and over and over. Even if it's an easy thing to track it still works as intended maybe 20% of the time. Eventually I just give up and do it manually or I use hitfilm if I really need a descent track. What happened? Did anyone else experience this?

Nah, its not that great. Touch and go sometimes.... However if one is serious about motion tracking in your edits, its best to simply invest in the Mocha Pro OFX Plugin, it integrates beautifully in Vegas.

Yep, I'd second that recommendation for Mocha Pro. Couldn't live without it now.
