mocha AE is a powerful motion tracking and roto utility created for VFX artists and editors using Adobe After Effects CC. Its advanced tracking and matte creation tools combined with the low price point make mocha AE the ideal complement utility for any post-production challenges. mocha AE is ideal for shots that cause other trackers to fail, such as out of focus footage, obscured and blurred objects, even elements that go off-screen. mocha AE saves Adobe After Effects CC artists time by significantly reducing manual keyframes.
mocha AE CC comes as a free bundle and is optimized for Adobe After Effects CC; and the mocha AE v3 standalone application, which adds new Camera Solve features is available for purchase directly from Imagineer Systems. mocha AE is also backward compatible with older versions of Adobe After Effects.
During IBC 2013, Imagineer Systems will also be demonstrating its newest point release of mocha Pro v3.2, which provides much improved international character support and significant features to help visual effects artists work more efficiently, including:
- Planar Tracking – powerful 2D motion tracking for solving the most difficult visual effects and post production tasks.
- Roto & Masking – advanced rotoscoping tools for creating masks with less manual keyframes.
- Object Removal – unique module for removing foreground objects and creating clean plates without manual paint and clone.
- Advanced modules for 3D camera solving, Lens Distortion, Stabilization and more.
- Supports Industry Applications – Seamless workflow with Adobe After Effects CC, Apple Final Cut Pro, Avid, Autodesk Flame & Smoke, Eyeon Fusion, Quantel, Maxon Cinema 4D, Nuke and many more.
mocha: Academy Award Winning Technology
In February 2013, Imagineer Systems was honored by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences with a Scientific and Technical Award for mocha and its Planar Tracking technology. Imagineer Systems’ Philip McLauchlan, Allan Jaenicke, John-Paul Smith and Ross Shain were selected as a winner for mocha and its underlying Planar Tracking technology. The Company was recognized for their proven record of contributing significant value to the post-production process of making motion pictures.
Over the years, Imagineer’s mocha software has gained acclaimed notoriety within Hollywood’s visual effects community for its ability to “motion track” problematic footage such as out of focus and marker-less areas helping enable a technique called ‘digital makeup’ or ‘seamless effects.’ Visual effects artists use planar tracking to magically transform actors and locations without requiring timely makeup sessions and expensive sets, allowing directors to make important creative decisions long after the performance has been captured. Capturing accurate movement is essential and mocha has been involved in some famous digital makeup examples such as the snake-like noseless Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter films, replacing Mystique’s eyes in X-Men and helping Natalie Portman undergo an amazing transformation in Black Swan.
