Curious Turtle Fundamentals of mocha – 08a – Using Corner Pin Data in After Effects
This is an excerpt from Curious Turtle's Fundamentals of mocha Premium, a new series of tutorials for Imagineer System's mocha family designed for those just starting out. Starting from the very basics, the course is designed to help you understand how mocha Pro and mochaAE work, and how you can get the best results out of it. The total course is 4.5 hours long, split into a total of 16 exercises.
08a – Using Corner Pin Data in After Effects: There are a number of different ways to use corner pin data out of mocha and in After Effects. In this exercise we look at three of them; raw corner pin data, corner pin data with motion blur and corner pin data offset with Align Surface.
The techniques shown here solve the most common problems people face bringing corner pin data in. We see how to deal with footage that is a different size or aspect ratio than our main composition. Plus how to use the Align Surface technique, which is useful for rig removal and background clean-up.
