PLANAR TRACKING

Our renowned planar tracking has now been updated for speed and efficiency with GPU accelerated tracking.

Planar tracking is at the heart of all Mocha Pro modules and is used to drive tracking, roto-masking, object removal and more. Unlimited tracking layers and advanced AdjustTrack interface can handle reflections, occlusions, noise, even areas with motion blur or low details.

Learn how Mocha’s planar tracking has earned its reputation as the “go to tool” on Hollywood films and must-see TV. Read our featured Mocha customer stories and product reviews.


PLUG-IN OPTION

New plug-in option introduces fast & efficient workflow using your host’s media engine. Launch Mocha Pro as a plug-in from within your favorite editing and effects hosts.

Plug-in Support For:
Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro
Avid Media Composer
Foundry NUKE
Blackmagic Design Fusion
Vegas Pro and HitFilm


ADVANCED ROTO & MASKING TOOLS

Mocha reduces time spent on manual masking & key-framing.

When linked to Mocha’s planar tracking, X-Spine & Bezier shapes inherit motion and perspective, dramatically reducing manual keyframe work.

Advanced tools for shape editing: per-point edge feathering, join layers tool, transform tool, group layers, and motion blur make Mocha Pro the ideal masking tool for effects or color correction.

Mocha masking tools are also found inside Continuum filters!


REMOVE MODULE

Automatically remove unwanted elements, wires, rigs and tracking marks for massive time savings.

Mocha Pro’s Remove Module is an amazing alternative to traditional clone and paint techniques for getting rid of unwanted pixels and removing objects. It automatically detects temporal clean frames to blend and align pixels with little user input. Clean plate functionality interpolates between clean frames for advanced digital beauty work and matte painting.

INSERT MODULE

Render accurate match moves and screen inserts with realistic motion blur or mesh warp distortions.

Render graphics onto your tracked screen surface within Mocha Pro or back to your host timeline with the new plug-in option. Combines with Lens Module for realistic VFX compositing on distorted footage.

STABILIZE

Smooth camera jitter and lock down shots with Mocha Pro’s Stabilize Module.

The stabilize module can lock down camera motion or stabilize moving objects based on planar tracking. Smooth option with selectable anchor frames helps reduce high frequency jitters while maintaining original camera motion. Center, scale or crop stabilized footage based on user driven tracking.

LENS MODULE

9Calibrate, correct and remove lens distortion.

This simple and easy-to-use interface allows users to calibrate the distortion introduced by camera lenses. Unwanted lens distortion can be removed or matched for realistic compositing. Export lens data or render correction back to host in the new plug-in option.

3D CAMERA SOLVER

Solve 3D match moving capabilities with planar ease.

Unlike feature based camera tracking, Mocha solves the 3D camera based on user-selected planes. This fast and easy-to-use solution is ideal for set extensions, 3D text and particle tracking. Additionally the 3D solver can be used to assist other 3D tracking applications on difficult shots with low detail or significant foreground occlusions.

Export to FBX or native Adobe After Effects format.


STEREOSCOPIC 3D

Stereo 3D planar tracking, masking and object removal workflow.

Mocha Pro 5 supports native stereo 3D. This workflow uses planar tracking analysis on “both eye views” to reduce manual offsets and tedious keyframe work on stereo 3D rotoscoping, tracking, 3D camera solve and object removal.

Mocha VR stereo 360 support, coming soon!
