This script provides a tool box for visualizing positional data. Initially it was designed for manipulating tracking data, like averaging multiple trackers to get a better one, or visualizing trackers as little solids for better control. Now the script offers many more features. They are detailed in the user interface (via tool tips or help buttons). You can work with path, and (for instance) can create a new tracker from path vertices, and reversely you can create a new path based on an analyzed track. What works with trackers also works with layers, by considering layers position instead of trackers attach points.

**Please note: This tutorial uses an earlier version of TrackerViz, however, the principles are still the same. Please stay tuned as a new tutorial will be coming soon.

Data can come from layers position data, from tracking data or from path data.
Details on each function are given below. Note that some tool tips also provide information.

Average Position:
Creates a new solid layer at the center of the selected layers (or track points).
Position & Rotation:
Creates a new solid layer at the first selected layer (or track point) position, and rotates it towards the second selected layer (or track point).
Position & Scale:
Creates a new solid layer at the first selected layer (or track point) position, and scales it so that its size matches the distance between the two selected layers (or track points).
Position & Rotation & Scale:
Creates a new solid layer at the first selected layer (or track point) position, rotates it towards the second selected layer (or track point) and scales it so that its size matches the distance between the two selected layers (or track points).
Track Combine:
Creates a new layer that combines the selected layer (or track point) position with the position of its parent layer.
Corner Pin:
Creates a new comp-sized solid with the Corner Pin effect applied to it. The four corners are linked to the position of the four selected layers (or track points) (in the following order: UpperLeft-UpperRight-LowerLeft-LowerRight).
CC Power Pin:
Same as above except that the CC Power Pin effect is used instead of the Corner Pin effect.
Shape To Tracker:
Associates each vertex of the selected mask path with a new track point.
Shape To Layers:
Creates a new solid at each vertex of the selected mask path (the mask path can be animated).
Track Points To Shape:
Transforms the selected track points into an animated mask path.
Layers To Shape:
Creates a new mask path for which the vertices are linked to the position of the selected layers.
