When you’re applying affects on a shot with a moving object or camera, you’ll want to track it.
Fusion has a few tracking options, and the Planar Tracker is super flexible and powerful tool.
It’s mainly used for tracking a flate plane (hence the name), like a screen, a wall, the floor, etc.
So it’s very useful for screen replacements, and similar operations.
