help! I need a quick start guide to using VT-2. I need to take a captured video and place an arrow over one person in a crowd and have it follow the individual.

If you can suggest a method, I will gladly loan out the co-worker who volunteered me for this task. well, alright I will throw in a buck or two if you take him , no questions asked.

thanks

Track the person's motion using Aura then import the motion file into LightWave and parent an arrow to it...

True, true... It's just that my main sphere of interest is LightWave, so I want every problem to have a LW solution! :)

You could even do it while the clip is playing with Aura as an overlay.
But pulling it in for tracking or keyframing are your most efficient methods and are the more enduring skill sets as postulates for learning.:cool:
Easy. Almost fun.
