The new Mocha pro combines the features of Mocha Pro and the Lumiere award-winning Mocha VR into one all-encompassing plug-in. Plus, they’ve added lots of new features like GPU-accelerated object removal, new spline creation tools, a mocha essentials workspace and more.
Mocha Pro is the Academy Award-winning planar tracking tool for visual effects and post-production. With a proven record on the world’s most notable film and television projects, Mocha is valued by effects artists and editors for its unique ability to reduce the time-consuming keyframing associated with high-end VFX and finishing. Mocha Pro 2019 features GPU-accelerated planar tracking and object removal, advanced rotoscoping tools, stabilization, 3D camera solver, stereo 360/VR support, and more. New Features Available now on macOS, Windows, and Linux, and as an integrated plug-in for Adobe, Avid & OFX hosts such as Nuke, Fusion, HitFilm, and VEGAS Pro.

2 Products, 1 Price: Mocha Pro and Mocha VR features are now combined into one all-encompassing plug-in
Mocha Pro is now officially part of the Boris FX U&S (Upgrade & Support) plan and moving to a yearly release cycle
All Mocha Pro and Mocha VR customers that are on current U&S plan, or purchased within the last year will receive a free update to Mocha Pro 2019.
Customers who purchased Mocha Pro v5 or Mocha VR before October 1, 2017, can pay to upgrade using the standard upgrade (with no legacy fee). The U&S plan is now in effect for Mocha product line moving forward. Since Mocha was not part of U&S when v5 was launched, customers who upgrade are effectively joining the U&S plan.
Customers who own older Mocha Pro v3 or v4 licenses can use the legacy upgrade path.
What's New in Mocha Pro 2019
- New workspaces with Mocha Essentials interface
- GPU-accelerated object removal delivers faster rendering
- New spline tools for faster masking: Magnetic Spline with edge snapping, Freehand Spline, and Geometric Shape Tools
- Retina/High DPI monitor resolution support
- Award-winning 360/VR tools now included with Mocha Pro 2019
Watch a quick tour with Mocha product manager, Martin Brennand.
The updated interface makes Mocha easier to learn than ever before and looks great on hi-res and retina enabled monitors!
The Mocha Essentials Workspace brings the power of Mocha to novice level users with a simplified, elegant, and easy-to-learn interface.
Tracking & masking is now faster by reducing complexity and focusing the Mocha interface on the most essential icons and tools. Switch to Classic for advanced modules and customize workspaces for flexibility.
Mocha’s powerful masking tools are improved with 4 new spline tools to speed up shape creation and save time on roto projects:
- Magnetic Spline Tool with edge snapping
- Freehand Spline for fluid drawing
- New Ellipse and Rectangle Shapes
Don’t paint yourself into a corner, these masking tools are vector splines for continuous editing capabilities and speed on high-resolution projects.
Mocha’s amazing Remove Module has been rewritten to optimize GPU video hardware for up to 4-5x render speed improvements on removals and clean plating projects. For high-resolution 4K projects and 360/VR video resolutions, the resulting speed improvement is a massive time-saver. View our speed test!
Fix it in post! The Remove Module is one of the most popular reasons After Effects artists upgrade from the Adobe bundled Mocha AE CC. It’s like Content Aware on steroids!
Award-winning tools for spherical 360 video post
Mocha Pro 2019 now includes all of Mocha VR’s features for mono/stereoscopic 360 effects and finishing. Learn More
- Stereo 360 planar tracking & masking
- Unique spherical 360 workspace
- Horizon stabilization & reorient
- New & improved GPU-accelerated object removal
- Stereoscopic masking tools: Anaglyph view, L/H Hero mode
- Lens workflow for Equirectangular to flattened conversions
The Academy Award-winning planar motion tracker
Planar tracking is at the heart of all Mocha modules and is used to drive tracking, roto-masking, object removal, and more. Unlimited tracking layers and the advanced AdjustTrack interface can handle reflections, occlusions, noise, and even areas with motion blur or low details.
Learn how Mocha’s planar tracking has earned its reputation as the go-to tool on Hollywood films and must-see TV
Mocha Pro’s integrated plug-in option delivers a fast & efficient workflow using the host’s media engine. Launch Mocha from within your favorite editing and effects hosts.
Plug-in Support For:
- Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro
- Avid Media Composer
- Foundry NUKE
- Blackmagic Design Fusion
- Vegas Pro and HitFilm
New Magnetic & Freehand Spline Tools!
Mocha Pro is the ideal masking tool for effects or color correction. When linked to Mocha’s planar tracking, X-Spline & Bezier shapes inherit motion and perspective, dramatically reducing manual keyframe work.
Advanced tools for shape editing: per-point edge feathering, join layers tool, transform tool, group layers, and motion blur.
Mocha masking tools are also found inside Continuum & Sapphire filters!
Now with faster with GPU rendering!
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 and paint techniques for getting rid of unwanted pixels and removing objects. It automatically detects temporal clean frames to blend and align pixels with little user input.
Render accurate match moves and screen inserts with realistic motion blur or mesh warp distortions.
Render graphics onto your tracked screen surface within Mocha Pro 2019 or back to your host timeline with the new plug-in option. Combines with Lens Module for realistic VFX compositing on distorted footage.
Smooth camera jitter and lock down shots
The Stabilize Module can lock down camera motion or stabilize moving objects based on planar tracking. The 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.
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.
For 360/VR, a simplified undistort/distort workflow makes mono or stereo cleanups on equirectangular footage easy.
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 2019 is the ultimate companion for stereo 360 projects in Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro.
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.
