How Do I Paste 3D Camera Solve Data into Adobe After Effects?

First, copy your 3D camera data out of Mocha by clicking “Export Camera Data….” and choosing “After Effects 3D Motion Data (.txt)”, then click “Copy to Clipboard”.

In After Effects, paste your 3D Camera Data by using the “Paste Mocha camera” option in the Edit menu. When you paste into After Effects you will get a camera and several nulls depending on the type of solve you did.

Where to find the 3D Track Importer Plug-in?

If you can not see the option to paste Mocha camera data into After Effects, you will need to download the 3D Camera importer.

By default, the plug-ins folder is in the following location:

  • (Windows) C:\Program Files\Adobe\Common\Plug-Ins\7.0\MediaCore\
  • (Mac OS) /Library/Application Support/Adobe/Common/Plug-ins/7.0/MediaCore

Simply drag and drop the plug-in into this location. You should restart Adobe After Effects and your “Paste Mocha Camera” option should now be available.

You can find more information on exporting Camera Solver Data in our Mocha documentation.
