Mask tracking not working

Community Beginner ,

I'm running the latest version of Adobe Premiere Pro and everything works great so far except for mask tracking. It simply doesn't work. I create a mask (currently doing this in Lumetri color) and hit "track mask forward". The tracking progress bar comes up and nothing happens. No progress shows up and eventually I just stop it. 

Any ideas as to how I might troubleshoot this?

 

 Thank you!

I'm Having the same issue, I create an opacity mask press the "track selected mask forward" and the progress bar comes up  and was maybe getting to about 10%before stopping,  but now it won't even do. I left it running for a couple hours while out running errands and it still didn't move.  I cleared my cache, restarted my whole system, and relaunched premiere and my session with no change. Please help. I'm running PP 22.5.0 on an imac (specs attached) I was able to succesfully track another clip in the same sequence, but now it won't budge.

Why do all of you people talk like this? I swear, I've never once seen an Adobe "Community Expert" be kind to new users – it's always this exact same condescending tone.

 

Can't you be even slightly polite to the people come to this forum looking for help?

This happens to my system as well.   For what it's worth, I closed out PR and restarted and the tracking progress worked for me.

Same problem here, for a long time actually.

Specs: M1 Max 32GB Ram, MacOS Ventura 13.4

Premiere Pro Version 23.5.0

Tracking works only intermittently. Most of the time it gets stuck like the screenshot Beachhead98 provided.

Make sure clip speed is at 100%. If not, change to 100, do mask tracking and then change back.

Same issue here and with no exact way how to fix it I've found sollution that is not exactlly smooth, but works. At least for me (Max M1 Pro). 

It seems, that Premiere has issue with specific combination of Frame x Mask. I've found two possible sotlutions. Restart premiere pro with every take or move image 1-3 frames and then press button again 

I'm not sure if it'l work for you, but it surelly is worth a shot. 

Hopefully it'll be fixed soon

This has to be a bug as it sometimes works but mostly doesnt.  Problem is I need a stable platform and if Adobe cant supply it well it might be worth looking at other suppliers.  Go onto X and send a public message, they will answer you very quickly

I figured out a solution. The problem is that I had 2 active lumetri effects in the clip. I had to disable one of them in order for mask tracking to work on the other. Looks like mask tracking doesn't work well with clips that have all these extra effects, so maybe temporarily disable them to apply the mask tracking, then re-activate your effects
