calculations with different point masses

I would like to deduct a vibration from the camera. For this I follow mass A (object) and mass B ("fixed point")
Is there a way to subtract Xb from Xa etc.?

Currently I'm using the measuring tool and attaching it to A and B, but this is very slow for 1000 pictures. The problem here is that when reading the trk file it takes a long time until it opens. It seems like the calculation is being done again ... aren't they saved? Pinning 2 points (500 frames FHD) takes about 5 minutes. Opening this trk file takes about 15 minutes. The entire RAM (32GB) is eaten up until the tracker is finished.
