So I’m going to fix this later by making a roto over the other edge of the exit to cut it off. I want to track the tablet's movements to put some stuff on it in 3dsmax. To place the clean patch into the scene, I first made a quick roto around the area that I had cleaned up.

Planar tracking is often better than tracking individual points (with the Tracker node for instance) as it takes a great deal more information into account and gives you a more accurate result. If I didn’t do this then the patch would have static noise that doesn’t move like the noise in the rest of the plate, therefore making it stand out. Now that I have my track, I will also need that clean plate. So I am removing the noise now and will then add it back on top at the end of my cleanup script. Inserting a flat 2D object needs planar tracking. As you can see from this render, it seems to stick well to its position but the cleanup does cover over areas that we don’t really want. This can be done by selecting an area of the footage with a roto and transforming it onto the area that you wish to cover up. There are various 3D tracking software such as PFTrack, boujou, Syntheyes, 3DEqualizer and After Effects own built-in camera tracking, I personally prefer Camera Tracker as it integrates well in NukeX for seamless compositing (which Nuke supports true 3D compositing unlike AE approach of 2.5D). Nuke has me incredibly confused and I just want to understand why I'm doing xyz, and not just "x=y" etc. The object can then be tracked using points or planar tracking and then the clean patch is added on top of the object to hide it over the frame range.
