New Bundle Includes mocha AE and BCC Motion Tracker Unit; Delivers Affordable, Powerful Motion Tracking Tools for Avid Media Composer, After Effects, Premiere Pro, FCP 7, Motion and Sony Vegas Pro
GUILDFORD, UK (August 16, 2011) — Imagineer Systems (www.imagineersystems.com) today announced it has teamed up with Boris FX (www.borisfx.com) to launch the Motion Tracking for Editors bundle, an affordable and powerful motion tracking toolset bundle designed to work with Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, Apple FCP 7, Motion, and Sony Vegas Pro. Available immediately for $299, the Motion Tracking for Editors bundle includes Imagineer Systems’ newest release of mocha AE v2.6.1 and the Boris Continuum Motion Tracker Unit from Boris FX.
mocha AE is a stand alone Planar Tracking™ and roto tool that enables artists to tackle the most challenging tracking projects. The Boris Continuum Motion Tracker Unit delivers match move, corner pin, Witness Protection face blurring, and Wire Remover capabilities. As a result of this collaboration, the new Motion Tracker for Editors bundles enables users to export tracking data from mocha AE directly to Boris Continuum Complete, giving editors access to more visual effects capabilities within their host system.
“Imagineer Systems is constantly exploring new and affordable ways to bring our unique planar tracking tools to new users,” said Ross Shain, chief marketing officer for Imagineer Systems. “Traditionally motion tracking has been the compositors’ area of expertise, but increasingly, editors are required to do more – such as replace content on cell phones, track graphics to match motion and stabilize jittery footage. The new Motion Tracking for Editors bundle delivers significant value for editors, offering seamless export from mocha AE to Boris Continuum Complete and broad support for many of the industry popular editing systems, like After Effects, Media Composer, Premiere, Final Cut and Sony Vegas. Working together with Boris, we’re offering new ways that editors can increase their finishing capabilities: using the BCC point tracker for simple tracking and leveraging mocha’s powerful planar tracking for solving the most difficult tracking shots. Editors who want to offer more services and handle more VFX shots will surely love this new affordable bundle.”
“Boris Continuum Complete allows editors to import motion tracking data from any mocha product into BCC filters,” commented Dirk de Jong, Senior Product Manager, Boris FX. “We are thrilled to partner with Imagineer Systems to deliver best-of-breed tracking, rotoscoping, and VFX software to editors at significant bundle savings.”
Vincent Maza, worldwide marketing manager for Avid also commented, “The introduction of mocha’s planar tracking import to Avid Media Composer is a game changer for editors who are looking to take creativity to the next level; effortless and straight from their timeline.”
The Motion Tracking for Editors Bundle encompasses the power of Imagineer Systems’ mocha AE Planar Tracking technology and the flexibility of Boris Continuum Complete to deliver:
– Affordable and powerful motion tracking tools for Adobe After Effects, Adobe Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro 7, Apple Motion, Avid Media Composer and Sony Vegas Pro;
– The ability to easily track and replace screen inserts, cellphones and logos;
