After Effects: 2D Tracking with 3D Camera Tracker

Occasionally when trying to do basic 2D tracking in After Effects I find myself in a situation where I just can’t get a useful track. Either my tracking point is obscured or something crosses. However I find that After Effects’ 3D Camera Tracker can get great fixes on things because of the way it tracks hundreds of points…

So that left me with an issue – how do I get a useful 2D track from the data created by the 3D Camera Tracker in After Effects? Turns out it’s pretty simple…
