The resulting speed increases on high resolution and 4K projects have been tremendous.” Shain continues, “mocha has long been recognized as an essential tool in the visual effects workflow; consequently Avid and Adobe editors have been asking for mocha support for years. Imagineer engineers collaborated closely with the team at parent company Boris FX to develop mocha Pro into a plug-in. Now the plug-in option runs directly inside Media Composer, Premiere Pro, and After Effects without any import/export required. Feedback from the professional editing community has been super positive.”
“Boris FX has a long heritage of creating high-quality plugins for Avid Media Composer,” says Kate Ketcham, product manager, Avid. “Their collaboration with Imagineer Systems on a mocha Pro AVX plug-in enables editors to access mocha’s unique planar tracking and object removal features without leaving the timeline for faster, more efficient finishing workflows."
