>>if it's possible to use Motion Track to automatically (Crop in + Track)

I believe it will Motion track for at least part of it. To crop in while it is tracking would take another generation or something like Parent Motion or Track Motion. I don't think Pan/Crop would work to crop in.

Is this the right link to YouTube for this video?

I'll download that later and see if I can get it to Motion Track.

Yep that's the video.
Yes, please give it a try to see if anything can work automatically.
it's the tracking that takes 'So Long' - cropping manually I could deal with.
That video has already been cropped in+tracked manually but as a test see you can get in further.
Thanks, xberk.

Can you describe what you want it to look like? What's the effect you are going for?

It's not a look - I just want to see if there's any way in vegas 16 to automatically track the bike to keep it in the centre of the screen - then I can just zoom / crop in after. Like how Bezier Masking can track a moving subject Automatically.

Maybe with PiP -- but if the bike gets close to the edge of the screen, things go bad. I thought you wanted to blur the background or highlight the bike in some way. You can borrow the keyframes from the Motion Track for PiP FX but not for pan/crop. Here's what I came up with ..

Okay, thanks for trying.

Would this work for you?
