New: mamoworld MochaImport+ v6 is Now Available – AE CC 2019 Compatible
MochaImport simplifies your workflow between Mocha and After Effects. MochaImport+ v6 adds support for After Effects CC 2019, a new Compact UI, KBar support, scripting support and more.
Now CC 2019 compatible! The Mocha tracker is an award-winning planar tracking software that comes bundled with After Effects. MochaImport+ helps you to get the most out of it – no matter whether you use the Mocha Plugin that is bundled with Ae or any other full or plugin version of Mocha. Create stabilized precomps, move masks, effect point and layers and distort the in perspective.
What's new in MochaImport+ v6
Full CC2019 compatibility
Since CC2019, After Effects includes a plugin version of mocha that cannot export tracking data to a file or the clipboard anymore. Therefore, it is not compatible with the old MochaImport+ V5. MochaImport+ V6 can read tracking data directly from the mocha Plugin effect and hence is fully compatible with CC2019 and the Mocha version that is bundled with it.
Send Masks From/To Stabilized Precomp
Stabilized Precomps are one of the most powerful workflows of MochaImport+. In V6 you can send masks or 2d properties (position of layers or effect control points) from the main comp to a stabilized precomp or vice versa.
This allows you, for example, to do rotoscoping inside the stabilized precomp and then send the final result to the main comp. Or you can take a mask you rotoscoped in mocha and send it from the main comp into the precomp.
Compact UI, KBar and Scripting
MochaImport+ comes with a new, more compact UI to save your screen real estate. If you need a few features of MochaImport+ frequently, you can now link them to KBar buttons very easily. And also using MochaImport+ in your own After Effects scripts has never been easier.
Automatic Tracking Data Conversion
Mocha tracking data comes in many different flavors (corner pin/corner pin with motion blur/transform data). MochaImport+ can convert corner pin data to any of the other formats, so you can always export the same format and MochaImport+ converts it as needed.
If you work with a plugin version of Mocha, you don't even need to specify the kind of data anymore, since MochaImport+ ready any data it needs directly from the plugin.
Keyframing Tracked Masks
MochaImport+ V6 can move masks with expressions instead of keyframes. This allows you to fix any inaccuracies by adding manual keyframes on top of the track. MochaImport+ will tween between your keyframes based on the tracking data for maximum accuracy.
Usually, stabilized precomps have the same resolution as your main comp. But when you do beauty retouch, for example, and want to create a small stabilized precomp around each individual blemish, then it makes sense to create stabilized precomps with a lower resolution. With MochaImport+ V6 you can now create such low-res stabilized precomps to keep your render speeds at a maximum!
Also, when reading tracking data, MochaImport+ V6 filters redundant keyframes to minimiz the size of your Ae project and speed up the processing.
