In AE, Mocha, how to get mask to track evenly when the corner points don't exist ?

Still working this one... hours of frustration.

 

In Mocha, trying to mask the bus ad so I can replace it.  It moves from left to right.

 

I'm replacing the bench ad with a new bench ad.

 

Here is how it starts:

I made an estimate of where the left side would be.

But when I track it,  the left and right side goes out of whack and I get this:

If I manually adjust the splines, they never come out perfectly square, because I have to "guess" where the bench ad will be, because it goes out of frame.

 

Has to be a perfect mask, because I'm replacing the image, and when the mask goes crooked, the new ad image bends and warps.

 

I tried the "AdjustTrack"  and it gave me the 4 red points, but how can I install the 4 points, when 2 of my starting points are out of the frame?  I tried, didn't work.

 

The tutorials all have masks that are entirely in the frame. 

 

My left side starts out of frame, and the right side later goes out of frame.

 

I've seen 6 videos on AdjustTrack in Mocha and I can't find one with my problem.

 

Thanks for your help and time! or a tutorial referral would be great.

Found some simple tutorials to extend the track point when it goes out of frame.

 

One simple track that goes out of frame:

Going way, way out of frame:

This doesn't help me, because I need 3D motion tracking,  but, if you have a 2D image that goes in and out of frame, this is it.

Isn't that great?  Works great for 2D,  waiting to see what Rick posts for a 3D solution.

Here is the pic for the bench.  

It's missing from the left to corner, but that part of the bench never shows in the clip. I had to create this by slicing to sections of a screen shot together. Not perfect, but enough to make it work.

Used a screen recording of your shot and came up with this in just a few minutes. I'll add it to a tutorial I'm working on and post it soon.

Did you use AdjustTracking in Mocha, and manually move the corners out of frame?    I couldn't do that, but maybe there is a way to do it in the Effects Controls?  Just a wild guess.
