We present a user supported tracking framework that combines au- tomatic tracking and extended user input to create error free track- ing results that are suitable for interactive video production. The goal of our approach is hereby to keep the necessary user input as small as possible. In our framework, the user can select between different tracking algorithms and if he/she wants automatically fuse the results of different trackers with our robust fusion approach. The tracked object can be marked in more than one frame, which can significantly improve the tracking result. After tracking, the user can validate the results in an easy way, thanks to the support of a powerful interpolation technique. The tracking results are in- teractively improved until the complete track has been found. After the interactive editing process, the tracking result of each object is stored in an external file in order to create the interactive video.
