An easy mocha & After Effects workflow

MochaImport+ Workflow

  1. Send your clips - including masks - from After Effects to mocha.
  2. After you finish tracking in mocha, import your tracking data from a file or from the clipboard. Have a different frame rate? Track doesn't start at the beginning of the composition? No worries! The intelligent import function of MochaImport+ takes care of all the details.
  3. Choose what you want to do with the tracking data, then click apply.
  4. Need more details? The help button opens a video tutorial for the function currently selected.

Key Features

Stabilized Precomps

If you don't know about stabilized precomps, you'll be surprised at how powerful they are. A stabilized precomp is a composition in which the tracked region no longer moves. Inside this precomp, you can make any modification - as if it were a still image - and all your changes are also automatically applied to the original perspective.

Whether you just want to re-light parts of your clip, remove elements with the clone brush, insert an object, or do any other kind of retouching work - with stabilized precomps, it becomes much easier.

Expression-driven tracking data

Have you ever done a corner pin, then after a while noticed that one corner needs to be moved a few pixels to the side? Normally, this is very tedious: To change the tracking data, you either have to manually adjust hundreds of keyframes or go back into mocha, export the tracking data again and start from scratch. But with expression-driven tracking data, you only have a single keyframe and all the movement is represented by an expression. Simply change this one keyframe, and the position of all other frames changes automatically. If you want to add more keyframes, MochaImport+ will automatically tween between your keyframes. Fixing inaccurate tracks has never been so easy.

Move masks and 2d properties

Move your After Effects masks and 2D point properties with a mocha track. Since this function is based on corner pin data, it not only considers position, scale and rotation, but also shear and perspective movement, to achieve maximum accuracy.

Need your screen insert to cast some light on the surrounding background? Just add some color correction with masks around the right areas and move them with the track. Want a lens flare to move with your track? No problem! And with expression-driven tracking data, you can still easily move your flare on top of the track.

Send clips and masks from AE to mocha

If you're more familiar with the masking tools of After Effects than those of mocha, you can do all your masking in After Effects and send the clip - including the masks - to mocha. This is also useful if you started rotoscoping in After Effects, then at some point you decided you'd rather switch to mocha.

Scripting API

With the well documented scripting API, you can use all the functionality of MochaImport+ in your own scripts. It's never been so easy to integrate mocha into your automated pipelines.

Bezier Warp Corner Pin

The Bezier Warp is a corner pin effect with bezier handles on all corners. This allows you to create corner pins on curved surfaces, as you can see in our balloon tutorial.

Should I use MochaImport+ or MaskTracker+?

MochaImport+ has a sister product, MaskTracker+, which can do similar things but is based on the mask tracker of After Effects CC instead of mocha.

In our experience, working with MaskTracker+ is usually a bit quicker on simple tracks, since you can do all the work inside After Effects and so don't need to switch to a separate application. On the other hand, the mocha planar tracking technology often gives better results for challenging tracks that have motion blur or reflections, for example. Also, mocha can easily handle foreground elements, do multiple tracks simultaneously, and supports X-Splines, making it the tool of choice for bigger tracking and roto jobs.

Our tip: Your best choice is the Tracking Bundle, which contains both MaskTracker+ and MochaImport+. You can then do most tracks quickly and easily with MaskTracker+; if the mask tracker gives you bad results, you can switch to mocha instead of spending hours fixing your track.
