Using the Rigid mask tracker in after effects

If you are like me, theres lots of times where you may be running and gunning or editing footage of someone else out in the field, and when you sit down with it need to remove certain information etc.

In the past I would mask things by hand or even jump into mocha and start tracking things across time, when I would have the tracking points fail me in After effects.

But the new Mask tracker feature in After Effects lets me mask quickly and easily so I can spend more time on my actual edit instead of cleaning up the footage and getting it ready to edit.

Heres a video I put together showing how the Rigid mask tracker works in After effects, but note that in the late 2014 release of Premiere Pro, we have this same tool availble saving you time in round tripping and creating extra Ae Compositions.
