Designed for all levels of users, Mocha Pro 2019 features a new, simplified Mocha Essentials workspace and powerful edge-snapping spline creation tools to improve masking and roto tasks. Object Removal processing now runs on GPU, delivering dramatic improvements in rendering performance, and the user interface crisply supports Retina/High DPI monitor resolutions. Additionally, Mocha Pro 2019 now combines the previous Mocha Pro and Mocha VR features into one product, adding best-in-class tools for stereoscopic 360/VR video. Mocha Pro 2019 is now available with affordable pricing and subscription options: plug-ins for Adobe After Effects® CC and Adobe® Premiere Pro® CC, Avid Media Composer, and OFX hosts including The Foundry Nuke, Blackmagic Design Fusion, Magix VEGAS Pro, and HitFilm (or as a standalone application).
The new release offers VFX artists, editors, and 360 filmmakers even greater time-savings on advanced VFX tasks including screen replacements, removing unwanted objects, image stabilization, rotoscoping, and masking. “For over 10 years, Mocha has been one of the film industry’s go-to tools for difficult motion tracking and effect shots,” states Ross Shain, Chief Product Officer, Boris FX. “The newly designed Mocha Essentials interface makes the software markedly easier for new users to learn and the faster object removal rendering is a game-changer.” Shain continues, “Adding 2019 to the product name signifies big news for our growing user base. Not only have we added new tools and improvements. Mocha also now provides annual updates and point releases to customers on the Boris FX support plan.”
