Can VisionLab be used for set extension effects?

I need to create some set extension shots and was wondering if VisionLab can enable me to do so. If so, what about motion tracking?

If the camera is static anything in the compositelab and visionlab range can do set extensions, but since it doesn't have any motion tracking capability, it would be very hard to matchmove set extensions realistically. So basically, if you're camera doesn't move, then you should be fine.

Its very time consuming and laborious, but if you place markers on your set, to make tracking easier, you can align set extensions manually frame by frame.
