Affordable Annual Subscription: Mocha Pro delivers professional tools at artist level prices. Annual subscriptions for Adobe start at only $295/year

Adobe plug-in option allows fast & efficient workflow using the host's media engine.

Launch mocha Pro as a plug-in from within After Effects or Premiere Pro. The plug-in workflow uses the host’s media engine and project format, reducing the need for transcoding or external file management.

What's New

2020.5 is a free update for customers on an active upgrade & support plan or annual subscription

  • Improved Planar Tracking, Up to 4x Faster Motion Blur Rendering, and more new features.
  • Updated OpenColorIO color management includes streamlined viewer settings, new preference tab, and improved workflow.
  • Mega Plate module: use planar tracking and temporal frame analysis to create extended stitched frames for advanced effects and clean up tasks
  • Area Brush: dynamic new paint tool with Quick Mask mode for fast creation of tracking and masking layers. Now improved with Gap Fill and keyboard shortcuts.


Mega Plate is a unique new module building on Mocha Pro’s most powerful core technologies — planar tracking and temporal frame analysis — to create a stitched extended frame for visual effects tasks.

Working with Mega Plates is a new way to visualize and work on a larger than raster “Mega” canvas for common VFX tasks such as object removal, clean plating, sky replacements, matte painting, and set extensions.


Area Brush is a new paint tool that speeds up Mocha’s most common core task — creating shapes.

Area Brush with Quick Mask mode brings fluid gestural paint functionality into Mocha to define planar tracking and masking search areas.

Instead of clicking and dragging spline points, add and subtract paint strokes are converted to vector splines — greatly speeding up and simplifying multi-shape tracking and masking set-ups.

The Area Brush also supports Wacom tablets for pressure-sensitive scaling.


Mocha Pro 2020 adds industry-standard OpenColorIO color management for consistent and predictable color display across industry workflows.

OCIO support is compatible with the Academy Color Encoding Specification (ACES) and enables improved color-managed workflows with high-end post-production and VFX applications such as Silhouette, Foundry’s NUKE, Autodesk Flame, Avid Media Composer, and more.



Planar tracking is at the heart of all Mocha Pro modules and is used to drive tracking, masking, object removal, stabilization, and more. Unlimited tracking layers and the advanced AdjustTrack module helps handle reflections, occlusions, noise, and even areas with motion blur or low details.


Mocha’s masking workflow features planar tracked spline tools to speed up shape creation and reduce manual keyframes.

Magnetic Splines with edge-snapping assistance help create the most detailed mask shapes — without requiring drawing skills.

Don’t paint yourself into a corner. Mocha’s masking tools always remain vector for continuous editing capabilities and speed on high-resolution projects.


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. It's like Content Aware on steroids!

Fix it in post! The Remove Module is one of the most popular reasons After Effects artists upgrade from the Adobe bundled Mocha AE.

Insert Module


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 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 with the Stabilize Module.

The stabilize module can lock down camera motion or stabilize moving objects based on planar tracking. 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.

3D Camera Solver


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 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.

Export to FBX or native Adobe After Effects format



Mocha Pro includes all of the features from Mocha VR for mono and stereoscopic 360 video workflows.

Award-winning 360 video tools for tracking, masking, horizon stabilization, object removal, nadir patching and spherical video post.

The native 360 optimized workflow simplifies spherical video post-production challenges. Work across seams with fewer pre-comps, nesting or rendering.



“For RocketJump, mocha is incredibly helpful – it allows us to be quick and turn around the kind of volume and quality work that we do on a week by week basis.”

– Freddie Wong, Director, RocketJump

“mocha Pro is an amazing box of magic tricks, necessary at every stage of the film-making process. mocha is an invaluable part of my tool kit!”

– Jake Morrison, VFX Supervisor, Marvel Studios

“mocha’s technology works amazingly on faces and allows us to track and roto more articulated areas of the face like lips, chins and even head turns much more easily.”

– Howard Shur, Creative Director, Flawless FX
