“We’re all about short, VFX- and action-driven online programming,” said Freddie. “We work with incredible speed and efficiency and with incredibly tight budgets.  So a tight workflow is critical to enabling our pace and volume of work.”

Freddie and his crew are big fans of mocha Pro from Imagineer and have been using it since it came on the scene - starting with the Adobe bundled mocha AE, and now mocha Pro. “mocha’s integration with After Effects is so easy,” continued Freddie. “The translation of the data from mocha to After Effects is instant, which is amazing. Often a point tracker just can’t cut it, and the 3D tracker just takes forever, so we turn to mocha time and again.” Mary Poplin, west coast product specialist from Imagineer Systems, sat down and spoke with Freddie and talked about RocketJump, how they work, and shared a lot of his thoughts on workflow, software integration and the importance of quality and efficiency.

“It’s surprising how often we break into the tool chest for mocha, mainly because of its speed, its versatility. You get to the point where you just shouldn’t be doing more work than you have to. If you’re doing more than you should, then you’re just wasting time in post production. Time is everything.”

“For RocketJump, mocha is incredibly helpful - it allows us to be quick and turn around the kind of volume and quality work that we do on a week by week basis.”
