Powerful, award-winning motion tracking software driven by the highly-acclaimed mocha Planar Tracking Engine

mocha pro has the ability to track even the toughest and most problematic shots, even following objects that go off screen, become obscured by another object, or lose focus, because it tracks “pixel patterns”, not points. This same mocha technology that powers our products is also authorized our technology partners.

mocha 5 planar tracker

Planar Tracking

Award-winning tracker, now updated with GPU acceleration!

Our renowned planar tracking has now been updated in mocha Pro 5 for speed and efficiency with GPU tracking and plug-in options. Planar tracking is at the heart of all mocha Pro modules and is used to drive 2D & 3D tracking, roto-masking, object removal and more. Unlimited tracking layers and advanced AdjustTrack interface can handle reflections, occlusions, noise, even areas with motion blur or low details. Learn how mocha’s planar tracking has earned its place as the “go to tool” for difficult motion tracking tasks.

 

mocha roto tools

Advanced Roto Tools

mocha Pro drastically reduces time spent on manual masking & key-framing projects.

X-spline and Bezier tools are designed to quickly create and edit detailed roto shapes. When linked to mocha’s planar tracking, roto shapes inherit motion and perspective, dramatically reducing manual keyframe work. Advanced tools for shape editing include per-point edge feathering, join layers tool, transform tool, group layers and more make mocha Pro the ideal system for rotoscoping.

 

mocha object removal

Object Removal

Automatically remove unwanted elements, wires, rigs and tracking marks with ease.

mocha Pro’s Remove Module is an amazing alternative to traditional clone and paint techniques for getting rid of unwanted pixels and removing objects. It automatically detects and blends pixels from other frames with little user input, offering massive time savings. mocha Pro’s clean plate functionality imports and corrects fixed frames for digital beauty work and matte painting.

 

mocha insert module

Insert Module

Render accurate match moves and screen inserts with motion blur or mesh warp distortion.

mocha Pro 5′s Insert Module allows you to render an image onto your tracked surface within mocha Pro or back to your host timeline with the new plug-in option. Composite with realistic motion blur or render out the tracked insert. Powerful mesh warp distortion tool allows the user to wrap and bend inserts onto non flat surfaces. Combines with Lens Module for realistic VFX compositing on distorted footage.

 

mocha lens module

Lens Module

Calibrate, correct and remove lens distortion.

This simple and easy-to-use interface allows users to calibrate the distortion introduced by camera lenses. Unwanted lens distortion can be removed or matched for realistic compositing. Export lens data or render correction in the new mocha Pro 5 plug-in option.

 

mocha 3d camera solver

3D Camera Solver

Camera tracking for 3D visual effects.

Solve 3D match moving capabilities with planar ease. Unlike feature based tracking, mocha solves the 3D camera based on user-selected planes. 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.

 

mocha stabilize module

Stabilize Module

Smooth camera jitter and lock down shots.

The stabilize module can lock down camera motion or stabilize moving objects for visual effects and finishing work. 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 planar tracking.

 

mocha stereoscopic 3d

Stereoscopic 3D

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

mocha Pro 5 supports native stereo 3D. This 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.

Planar Tracking Innovation

mocha is award winning tracking software developed by Imagineer Systems. Built upon a renowned Planar Tracking image engine, mocha follows “pixel patterns” through the most difficult conditions including objects that go off-screen, objects that are partially obscured, even out of focus footage.This technology drives our products and is licensed to technology partners.
Editors, colorists and effects artists worldwide use our tools for:

  • Tracking graphics, cell phones & screen inserts
  • Roto masking to isolate, correct and layer
  • Object Removal, clean plates & digital beauty work
  • Camera and image stabilization
  • 3D Camera Tracking and animation

SpidermanTools for Artists and Filmmakers

mocha has a proven record on countless high profile film & television projects including:The Wolf of Wall Street, The Hobbit, the Harry Potter film series, The Walking Dead, Grimm, and many more.From the Adobe bundled mocha AE CC up to mocha Pro, our products help artists and editors solve problems.
 

Planar Tracking = Less Keyframes

Traditional tracking tools requires a user to select “points” that remain consistent throughout the entire shot in order to track movement. Point and feature tracking often run into problems when an object is out of focus or obscured.

mocha’s innovation has been to create a new paradigm for motion tracking that is faster and easier to learn than camera tracking and more robust and dependable than point tracking. mocha compliments post-production software including tools from Adobe, Autodesk and Apple.

Academy Award Winning Technology

In 2013 Imagineer’s team was awarded a Scientific & Engineering Award from The Academy of Motion Pictures for the development of mocha:

mocha provides robust planar–tracking even when there are no clearly defined points in the image. Its effectiveness, ease of use, and ability to exchange rotoscoping data with other image processing tools have resulted in widespread adoption of the software in the visual effects industry.
