If you want to move After Effects layers with a mocha track, it is a VERY bad idea to apply the tracking data to a null object or directly to the position, scale and rotation of your layers: The result is very inaccurate, because the skew and perspective deformation of the track is ignored if you are doing that. A much more accurate way to move layers is using a corner pin effect, but with a normal corner pin, your layers are stretched into the corner pin surface which is often not what you want. The “keep current frame” option of MochaImport+ offers a 100% accurate solution that is as easy to use as a null layer. Learn how to do “keep current frame” corner pins in less than 4 minutes!

MochaImport+ for After Effects Tutorial: Keyframeable Tracked Masks

Posted in Tutorials by mamoworld on December 26, 2018

In this tutorial, you learn how you can move masks in After Effects with a track created with the mocha plugin that is bundled with After Effects CC 2019 (or also with any Mocha version). Since we use the “move point(s) or path(s)” function of MochaImport+ for that, the masks are not just moving with the track, but can also still be keyframed on top of the track to fix any inaccuracies. Learn this powerful rotoscoping workflow in just three minutes!
