To celebrate our recent honor from the Academy of Motion Pictures, the team from Imagineer Systems was pleased to offer a special limited discount on mocha Pro software - our flagship product. This past Oscar's weekend mocha users were able to save on upgrades! We really appreciate those of you who were able to take advantage of this offer.
Speaking of, I highly encourage you to buy support when you buy mocha Pro. Imagineer offers one year support & maintenance contracts for customers that wish to insure they are always running the latest version or need a guaranteed response time for customer support & technical issues. For more information, please contact us or your local reseller.
Thats not all to report, though. This past Thursday we hope you were able to get out of the house in Boston to meet Dan Lebental, along with filmmaker Rick Macomber, and Ross Shain of our very own Imagineer Systems, and Robin Hobart of BrickyardVFX at Salvatores. There were drinks and prizes and we heard great things from our users, as usual. Thanks for hosting, BOSFCPUG!
So now that we've spread the love there, lets spread some link love below.

Revengeance: Metal Gear Rising Inspired
The guys at 7SL Entertainment used mocha on their latest video game inspired short, "Revengeance." The video is a little violent, so beware of that, but it's a great example of the kinds of things you can do very simply with mocha's planar tracker and AE.
Duet with my hand (mocha tracking)
@Alvarobadmother used mocha for this cute video. Love to see YouTube videos that do more with mocha than simply blow things up! It is a jazz duet with his hand, apparently he won't dance. Composited in After effects CS3, mocha tracking and Sony vegas
Free Tracking Markers
For those of you on set, mocha's planar tracking does not often need tracking markers, but for large sets and green screens, these free markers should come in handy!
