@Alan_Lorence somehow I got mocha in a confused state. Likely because I wasn’t using the world center properly.
I found that adding a keyframe manually would move the emitter offset in strange ways. After watching those videos, I started fresh. If I properly put the world center on something static, that’s not happening.
Should keyframes be added automatically when moving the emitter or world offsets? Automatic insertion is enabled but I found I have to add them manually if I want them.
[time passes while I’m gleefully adding keyframes until…]
I discovered that they’re not doing what I think they’re doing.
I went back through my timeline and found that the keyframes save the search area location but not the emitter offset?
When tracking gets lost, I’ve tried both adding a keyframe and then moving the offset and search area back where I want it as well as moving then adding the keyframe. No matter what, once I move either the search area or the offset, it moves the offset location on previous keyframes as well.
I can post a video if none of this makes sense
