Can you send me one of the TRK files that fails to load? Please send it to my direct email: dobrown@cabrillo.edu.  I'm sure we can get this fixed.  Thanks. Doug

Are you still having this problem? I can probably fix it but I need more information. Can you send me one of the TRK files?  Doug

I have discovered one possibility and that is that loading RGB regions can take a VERY long time (in one case 4 hours!!) if the video has many frames. So if you are using an RGB region you might try waiting and doing something else while Tracker tries to load it.

This is no as it should be, of course, and I will try to speed up the process. Look for better performance in the next release...
