In this short tutorial, Imagineer Systems Product Specialist, Mary Poplin, uses mocha to create animated roto-shapes to create a simplified and stylized animated look in Adobe After Effects. This workflow is basic, and uses simple mocha masks with After Effects filters and solids. Mary also shows you how to convert one selected layer with many mocha masks to separate layers, each with it's own named mocha mask using an easily available free script from crgreen.com. Software used: mocha AE CC, mocha Plus or mocha Pro Adobe After Effects Script used: Separate_Masks_in_Layers.jsx script for AE via crgreen.com crgreen.com/aescripts/actual_scripts/Separate_Masks_in_Layers.jsx
