We’re looking forward to bringing more excitement to the VFX community in 2014.”   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. In 2013 along, mocha has touched such Hollywood features films as Iron Man 3, Superman: Man of Steele, The Great Gatsby and the huge 3D hit, Gravity. 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.
