Quick Overview

MochaImport simplifies your workflow between mocha and After Effects. Create stabilized precomps, move masks, effect points and layers, and distort them in perspective.

Music by License this music

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 - whether you use the Mocha Plugin that’s bundled with Ae, or any other full or plugin version of Mocha.

Key Features

Stabilized Precomps

Stabilized Precomp

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

Expression-driven tracking data

Have you ever placed 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 the 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 masks

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!

Masks and properties also support expression-driven tracking data, so they can be keyframed on top of the track. So, if your track isn’t 100% accurate, you can easily refine your masks.

Stabilize Rig

MochaImport+ can stabilize your clip or smooth the motion with advanced controls - perfect for projects like hyperlapse videos, where you need full control over the stabilization process.

New Features in V6

Full CC2019 compatibility

Starting with CC2019, After Effects includes a plugin version of mocha that can no longer export tracking data to a file or the clipboard. Therefore, it is not compatible with the old MochaImport+ V5. However, MochaImport+ V6 can read tracking data directly from the Mocha Plugin effect so it’s fully compatible with CC2019 and the Mocha version bundled with it.

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.

Send Masks From/To Stabilized Precomp

Stabilized precomps are one of the most powerful features of MochaImport+. In V6 you can send masks or 2d properties (the position of layers or effect control points) from the main comp to a stabilized precomp, or vice versa.

This allows you to, for example, rotoscope inside the stabilized precomp and then send the final result to the main comp. You can also take a mask that you rotoscoped in Mocha and send it from the main comp into the precomp.

Performance Improvements

Usually, stabilized precomps have the same resolution as your main comp. But when you do beauty retouching, for example, and want to create a small stabilized precomp around each individual blemish, it makes sense to create stabilized precomps with a lower resolution. With MochaImport+ V6, you can now create these low-res stabilized precomps to maximize your render speeds!

Also, when reading tracking data, MochaImport+ V6 filters redundant keyframes to minimize the size of your Ae project and speed up the processing.

Compact UI, KBar and Scripting

MochaImport+ comes with a new, more compact UI to save your screen real estate. If you frequently use certain features in MochaImport+, you can now easily link them to KBar buttons. Using MochaImport+ in your own After Effects scripts has also 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 these other formats, so you can always export in the same format and MochaImport+ will convert 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+ reads all the data it needs directly from the plugin.

Supported Mocha versions

All the features of MochaImport+ for After Effects work with any version of Mocha (both plugin and standalone versions). Importantly, all features of MochaImport+ can be used with the version of Mocha included in After Effects.

Other Voices

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 interface for tracking. 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 simple 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.
