WHY MOCHA PRO?

The Most Reliable Tracking

Rock solid planar tracking is at the heart of all Mocha Pro modules. VFX artists turn to Mocha for its ease of use and reliability when faced with the most difficult shots.

Mocha is versatile, so use it the way you want…as a standalone application, or as a plugin in your favorite host.

Mocha Pro can export tracking, roto shapes, lens calibration and 3D data in a wide variety of formats, or render to file or back to your host.

Using Mocha AE in After Effects? View the Compare Mocha Chart (below) to learn how Mocha Pro compares with other Mocha solutions.

 

PowerMesh

PowerMesh enables a powerful sub-planar tracking process for visual effects and rotoscoping. Now Mocha Pro can track warped surfaces and organic objects, making it even more powerful for match moves and digital makeup shots.

PowerMesh is simple to use and faster than most optical flow based techniques.

  • Render PowerMesh driven inserts as composites or RGBA cutouts.
  • Output a Reverse Warp/Stabilized view for advanced paint and VFX tasks.
  • Use PowerMesh to to drive roto shapes with less keyframes.
  • Export mesh vertices to After Effects Nulls, Nuke tracking, or Alembic for Flame, C4D, and more 3D support.

 

Roto with Less Keyframes

Mocha’s masking workflow features tracked spline tools to speed up shape creation and reduce manual keyframes. Export or render roto to most popular host applications.

X-Splines and Bezier splines with magnetic edge-snapping assistance and Area Brush tool help create detailed mask shapes — without requiring drawing skills.

PowerMesh warped splines deliver even more accurate results when masking organic moving objects like musculature, skin, fabrics, and more.

 

 

mocha pro plugin optionsPlugin Option for Flexibility

Mocha Pro’s integrated plugin option delivers an efficient workflow using the host’s media engine. Launch Mocha Pro from within your favorite hosts:

The plugin can be purchased by host. A multi-host plugin license is included with standalone application and Boris FX Suite.

 

mocha pro wire removeRemove Objects and Wires

Remove unwanted elements, wires, rigs, tracking marks, and 360 cameras. Generate clean plates for massive time-savings.

The Remove Module is an amazing alternative to traditional clone techniques for removing objects. It automatically detects temporal clean frames to blend and align pixels with little user input. It’s like Content Aware on steroids! View all Remove Module tutorials

Mega Clean Plates! Beyond object removal, this same technology can also be used to create a large, stitched image out of multiple frames.

 

mocha pro screen insertsScreen Inserts and Match Moves

Render accurate match moves and screen inserts with realistic motion blur or warped distortions. The Insert Module can now be driven by PowerMesh and has improved compositing with higher quality sub-sampling and blend modes.

Redesigned Grid Warp tool can be used to bend and deform insert elements to match curved and distorted surfaces.

Insert also combines with Lens Module for realistic VFX compositing on lens distorted footage.

 

Stabilize Camera or Object Motion

The Stabilize Module can lock down camera motion or stabilize based on select tracking layers. Export stabilized tracking data or render a stabilized clip.

With PowerMesh tracking enabled, the Stabilize Module can produce an inverse-warped flattened surface for paint fixes. Original motion is easily propagated back to the original.

For general editing, a smooth option with selectable anchor frames helps reduce high frequency jitters while maintaining original camera motion. Center, scale or crop stabilized footage based on user-driven tracking.

 

mocha distort afterWork With Lens Distortion

The Lens Module provides a simple and easy-to-use interface to calibrate the distortion introduced by camera lenses. Remove unwanted lens distortion or match it to composite realistically.

Lens Calibration data can also be exported and read into Nuke’s STMap node or other VFX applications.

360/VR: A simplified “Undistort/Distort” workflow makes mono or stereo clean-ups on equirectangular footage easy.

 

Stereoscopic Workflow

Stereo 3D planar tracking, masking, and object removal workflow.

Mocha supports native stereo 3D and 360/VR stereo formats. This unique workflow uses planar tracking analysis on “both eye views” to reduce manual offsets and tedious keyframe work on stereo 3D rotoscoping, tracking, 3D camera solve, and object removal.

Mocha Pro 2022 is the ultimate companion for stereo 360° projects in Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro.

 

mocha pro 2020 3d camera solver3D Camera Solver

Solve 3D match moving capabilities with planar ease.

Unlike feature based camera tracking, Mocha solves the 3D camera based on user-selected planar data. This fast and easy-to-use solution is ideal for set extensions, 3D text, and particle tracking. Additionally the 3D solver can be used to assist other 3D tracking applications on difficult shots with low detail or significant foreground occlusions.

Export to FBX for Flame and Nuke support or install the free AE 3D Track Import plug-in to paste into an After Effects composition.

 

Optimized for 360/VR

Award-winning 360° video tools for tracking and masking, horizon stabilization, Camera and Object Removal, Nadir Patching, and spherical video post.

A native mono and stereo 360° optimized workflow simplifies spherical video post-production challenges: work across seams with less pre-comps, nesting or rendering.
