Renowned After Effects Expert, Mathias MÓ§hl, Creates Powerful Scripts Enabling mocha Users to Stabilize Shots Without Scaling, Create Advanced Compositing in AfterEffects Using mocha Data, Further Simplifying Workflow
GUILDFORD, UK (December 20, 2010)
— Imagineer Systems (
) today announced it is showcasing well-known After Effects guru, Mathias MÓ§hl who has created a series of powerful scripts and tutorials designed to further simplify the mocha and mocha AE workflows. Available on the newly designed Imagineer Systems web site, these new tutorials train users to master such workflow steps as stabilizing shots without scaling, or understanding how to create advanced compositing in After Effects using MÓ§hlâ€™s script called mochaImport.
â€œThe team at Imagineer Systems is always striving to create a level of tools, tips and tutorials that ultimately will make our customersâ€™ lives easier. But even more valuable is when users from the mocha community approach us with ideas for taking the VFX workflow even further,â€? said Ross Shain, chief marketing officer, Imagineer Systems. â€œWe were very excited when Mathias presented his ideas to us because they not only offer great tips for our users, but they also provided great insight into how sophisticated and creative you can be with mochaâ€™s planar tracking data within After Effects to solve just about any VFX workflow challenge.â€?
Mathias MÓ§hl is a renowned After Effects script developer and the creator of mamoworld.com, a comprehensive resource for tutorials and techniques especially developed for After Effects artists. As an avid user of Imagineerâ€™s mocha AE and mocha Pro, he brings a valuable perspective to his tutorial videos. MÓ§hl added,
â€œWhen the first version of mocha AE was released, not everyone realized its full potential right away. Many people thought it could only be used to pin a picture on a wall. Of course, the manual described many of these powerful functions, but since they required more than one simple click, I realized people werenâ€™t noticing them. Thatâ€™s why I developed mochaImport and the tutorials — to create an effortless way to discover the endless possibilities of mocha.â€?
â€œThe world of After Effects is like a world of postcards in a 3d space – and that’s exactly where mocha excels, easily creating robust tracks. I don’t need to worry about camera movement, focal
length or other details, I just track a plane and my AE layer moves accordingly. It has changed the way I work and I hope my scripts and tutorials help VFX artists not only understand what mocha is capable of, but also how far they can go with mocha.â€?
The tutorials and scripts created by Mathias are available on the new Imagineer Systems web site and can be found by visiting
