Adobe after effects has a pretty good motion tracker but it is inefficient for complex scenes as if a tracking point leaves the screen, it means a crap ton of work to continue the motion tracking.
Autodesk has a tool mainly used with maya called matchmover. it has a feature called automatic tracking which will detect hundreds or thousands of tracking points through out the footage and conpensate for points leaving the screen. this allows for things such as overlays on a video (for example labeling items and have the labels follow the item even if it goes off screen and that way I can motion track the entire clip then add items with out worrying about additional tracking)
If there anything similar to matchmover that will work with adobe aftereffects?
Maybe look into Apple Shake or Apple Motion. Expensive, but well worth it.
