Tracker plotting two position values on one time value?

I've been running into this issue with Tracker for a little while now.

Basically, whenever I'm placing down point masses, Tracker will plot subsequent points on the same time value, but only two at a time. This can be seen in the attached image. I've looked through the Tracker settings and through other forum posts, but I can't figure out why this is occurring. My guess is some issue with the frame data when I imported the video file, but I'm unsure.


Any help is appreciated.
