It must be late in Australia! One of my friends is off down under for a year on Friday, lucky cow!! lol.
You choose quite a good subject to practice tracking on, with lots of good points for you to get, and the camera move wasn't too simple, with some jerks and the like to practice with. You did a good job.
The good thing about Maya LIve is that it can sometimes get a pretty good solve out of just a few points....this is especially great if the shot is nodal and you only have the luxury of 1 or 2 points and nothing else.
Voodoo sounds a lot like Boujou, which picks its own points, and sometimes you have loads! With Live and 3d equalizer, you can intuitively select your own points to track. This also eliminates the need for masking, which you do in Boujou to cover up the moving objects.
