Do you have experience with the plugin FindObj? I tried following your 
instructions. Despite many attempts I do not manage to produce a usable 
result with it. The object that should overlay the scene jumps back and 
forth like crazy. The object is partly distorted beyond recognition. 
Shouldn't the overlay object always keep the same shape and size? Had 
you made a video about this in the past?

This plugin seems to be very powerful, but the handling is very 
complicated. I have noticed the following points:

1. The knobs for the position of the frames are very laborious to 
operate. It would be a relief to draw a frame by mouse, similar to the 
crop tool in the compositor (F7). By using the CTRL or SHIFT keys to 
move the frame with the mouse, similar to moving the layer in the mask tool.
2. The frames are sometimes very difficult to see because the frame line 
disappears at certain positions. Maybe it would be good to make these 
lines a little thicker.

I think this plugin is useful because it covers some video editing cases 
well and gives Cinelerra a very professional touch.
