[CinCV TNG] [impr] FindObj plugin part 2

The FindObj plugin has become very good with the improvements. Only a 
small option is missing in this plugin. I cannot set an offset of the 
object. Currently, the new object (in the replacement layer) that is 
inserted is placed directly over the tracked object. In my last video 
with the easy rider bikers you can see that the word 'Rider' is placed 
directly over the biker.  I have attached a screenshot, it would be 
great if you could place the word 'Easy', as in my example, over the 
object (with offset) you are looking for or next to it. This would make 
motion tracking perfect. I also added an example from YouTube. It's an 
extreme example, but a good demonstration of what I mean. At the moment 
the FindObj plugin reduces the content of the replacement object layer. 
It would be great if I could disable the resize and keep the relative 
position of the replacement object layer object, which means I have an 
additional box/frame I can move. In the plugin I have the options "Draw 
scene border" and "Draw object border". The new/other option could be 
"Draw replacment border". When I move this box/frame, the relative 
position of the replacement object to the searched object is maintained. 
With these little improvements we could create motion tracking almost 
like in After Effects.

YouTube Video:


Here is a summary:
1. make size reduction of the replacement layer optional.
2. add replace object frame. (It already exists, but cannot be changed.)
3. keep the relative offset to the replacement frame to the object.

I don't know if this is possible, it was just such a spontaneous 
inspiration, because I know it from After Effects.
