Canon G1X video focusing question

I want to experiment with short video clips with my G1X using the red quick video button. This would be for simpe vacation action, etc. with moving subjects, or just re-framing on near and far subjects in a scene. I can't find the info in the manual as to how what auto focus settings to use.

For my regular (still photo) work I use the Flexizone option. Is this also correct for video, or is tracking AF more suitable?

Do I select the "continuous focus" option, the "Servo" function option?

Any suggestions appreciated!

Ron
