    @pieterdvyver someone may be able to provide suitable answers to your first two questions, although question A sounds like you've missed a step.

    As for question C, are you trying to save your project, or export your footage? The question is a little confusing. If you're trying to export and not getting the correct output, then you are potentially choosing to export the wrong thing.

    Thank you kindly for your prompt reply Ben
    Correction.. it should read "Export"
    I apologize
    The plan is: - I want to crop the DANCER  because thats all I want to see (the dancer)

    Not a word or photo above her head (Not yet)

    Then I miss the knowhow to "EXPORT" my tracking
    The funny thing is I could somehow manage to do it perfect the 1st time 

    I can say that my HitfilmExpress is "White" and not "Grey" - like they show on You Tube
    I really wanna kill this and sit in Binge mode for 3x days now exporting about a 100+ efforts that only give the origional - not the end result
    Thank you Ben
    Pieter

    @pietervdvyver unfortunately I'm not sure how to help you any further. Your steps are still not easy for me to understand. I just tried to do what I think you're doing and had no problem exporting the stabilized footage.

    • create comp shot
    • drag media into comp
    • add a tracker
    • change type to "template match" as you said?
    • track forward a few frames
    • purpose: stabilize. ensure x and y are both ticked
    • click apply.
    • export menu -> export now -> contents
    • exports as expected

     Thank you kindly Ben

    It is correct - I do it as above thank you

    But

    Of I play back the timeline  (A) There is a *blue rectangular line* that seems to be the main photo  - it moves as predicted by the trackers - meaning the target shoud be the centre and it does not want to "latch" on the extra Blue layer that is dwindling  around
    (B) It seem the Blou Rectangle should have been the cropping edges
    (C) it seems i need to parent or add a layer
    Sheesh Ben 
    Please do not give up one me - I really love this programme
    I really binge-try - I saved 30x and everyons is still the same old master
    Please spend some of your private time to help me this new April
    Kind regards

    @pieterdvyver unfortunately I'm not sure how else to help you, I've provided the steps to do what you originally asked. I insist that you browse YouTube to find a tutorial, as there are countless creators making amazing tutorials for our software.
