WHAT'S NEW

Mocha Pro 2023

  • Rotoscoping Improvements: Point selection falloff for more organic roto. Quickly split up complicated shapes into different layers. Snapshot layers to readjust or break up shots. Adjust inner, outer, or both edges faster.
  • Tracking Improvements: Merge tracks of separate planar layers. Move clusters of PowerMesh track points with falloff. Quickly jump to ends of tracks and set tracked ranges.
  • Rendering Improvements: Remove objects from locked or static shots without needing to track. Crop Insert Module ROI (region of interest) to the surface for easier manipulation.
  • Export Improvements: Generate tracking data directly in the Nuke OFX plugin. New 1-click generation for data where there is only one layer in After Effects and Nuke.
  • And much more!

Falloff Selection Tools

Mocha Pro’s selection tool now offers a falloff option to make organic roto and PowerMesh tracking much easier to manipulate.

Adjust spline edges or clusters of PowerMesh vertices using the same tool, easily adjusting radius and strength of the falloff as required.


Layer Spline Tools

Mocha Pro expands its diverse array of spline options with handy new tools to help you manage layer spline workflows.

  • Split Contours: Select points in a spline contour and split them off into a new layer, retaining the original layer keyframes and tracking data.
  • Snapshot Duplicate: Create a clean duplicate spline based on the current frame to break tracks into chunks.
  • Inner Width feather adjustment: Alter the inner or outer edge points of a spline using the Edge Offset properties.
  • Shrink and Grow Splines: Move the inner and the outer points together using Edge Offset properties.
  • Clear keyframes: Clear keyframes forward or backward from the current playhead position, making it easier to restart a section of work.


Tracking Tools

  • Merge Tracks: You can now merge the tracking data of multiple layers, making it easier to work with difficult shots.
  • Set Tracked Layer Range: One click will set the layer range to the tracked keys on the timeline.
  • Grid Scale: Originally a fixed size, you can now adjust the size of the Grid relative to the surface.
  • Preview Search Area: Visualise the search area in the Matte view options, helping to adjust how far out from the current frame Mocha will look.
  • AdjustTrack Point Lock: To avoid accidentally keyframing points in AdjustTrack, lock a selected point to disable it from further adjustments.
  • Nuke OFX Plugin Track Data options: Create track data nodes inside the OFX plugin node interface without needing to open the Mocha UI. Choose from linked or baked nodes.

Expanded Rendering Options

  • Static scene removal: Create a single layer to remove moving objects on static backgrounds in the Remove Module. Save time on tracking.
  • Improved ROI fitting: The Insert Module now makes it easier to crop an ROI (region of interest) to better manipulate PowerMesh and Grid warps.

WHY MOCHA PRO?

The Most Reliable Tracking

Rock solid planar tracking is at the heart of all Mocha Pro modules. VFX artists turn to Mocha for its ease of use and reliability when faced with the most difficult shots.

Mocha is versatile, so use it the way you want...as a standalone application, or as a plugin in your favorite host.

Mocha Pro can export tracking, roto shapes, lens calibration and 3D data in a wide variety of formats, or render to file or back to your host.

PowerMesh

PowerMesh enables a powerful sub-planar tracking process for visual effects and rotoscoping. Now Mocha Pro can track warped surfaces and organic objects, making it even more powerful for match moves and digital makeup shots.

PowerMesh is simple to use and faster than most optical flow based techniques.

  • Render PowerMesh driven inserts as composites or RGBA cutouts.
  • Output a Reverse Warp/Stabilized view for advanced paint and VFX tasks.
  • Use PowerMesh to to drive roto shapes with less keyframes.
  • Export mesh vertices to After Effects Nulls, Nuke tracking, or Alembic for Flame, C4D, and more 3D support.

Roto with Less Keyframes

Mocha’s masking workflow features tracked spline tools to speed up shape creation and reduce manual keyframes. Export or render roto to most popular host applications.

X-Splines and Bezier splines with magnetic edge-snapping assistance and Area Brush tool help create detailed mask shapes — without requiring drawing skills.

PowerMesh warped splines deliver even more accurate results when masking organic moving objects like musculature, skin, fabrics, and more.

Plugin Option for Flexibility

Mocha Pro’s integrated plugin option delivers an efficient workflow using the host’s media engine. Launch Mocha Pro from within your favorite hosts:

  • Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro
  • Avid Media Composer
  • OFX Hosts: Autodesk Flame, Foundry Nuke, Blackmagic Design Fusion, VEGAS Pro, HitFilm, SGO/Mistika, and Boris FX Silhouette.

The plugin can be purchased by host. A multi-host plugin license is included with standalone application and Boris FX Suite.


Remove Objects and Wires

Remove unwanted elements, wires, rigs, tracking marks, and 360 cameras. Generate clean plates for massive time-savings.

The Remove Module is an amazing alternative to traditional clone techniques for removing objects. It automatically detects temporal clean frames to blend and align pixels with little user input. It's like Content Aware on steroids! View Remove Module tutorials

Now Remove objects in locked shots without tracking using the new “Static Scene” option.

Mega Clean Plates! Beyond object removal, this same technology can also be used to create a large, stitched image out of multiple frames.


Screen Inserts and Match Moves

Render accurate match moves and screen inserts with realistic motion blur or warped distortions. The Insert Module can be driven by PowerMesh and has improved ROI compositing with high quality sub-sampling and blend modes.

Use the Grid Warp tool to bend and deform insert elements to match curved and distorted surfaces.

Use preprocessing to enhance tracking and right-click on the surface to easily modify Inserts for general tracking challenges!

View Insert Module tutorials.


Stabilize Camera or Object Motion

The Stabilize Module can lock down camera motion or stabilize based on select tracking layers. Export stabilized tracking data or render a stabilized clip.

With PowerMesh tracking enabled, the Stabilize Module can produce an inverse-warped flattened surface for paint fixes. Original motion is easily propagated back to the original.

For general editing, a smooth option with selectable anchor frames helps reduce high frequency jitters while maintaining original camera motion. Center, scale or crop stabilized footage based on user-driven tracking.

View all Stabilize Module tutorials.


Lens Calibration Tools

The Lens Module provides a simple and easy-to-use interface to calibrate the distortion introduced by camera lenses. Remove unwanted lens distortion or match it to composite realistically. Use built-in line detection or splines for calibration.

Save calibration settings for lenses to reuse them or export Lens Calibration data can to read into Nuke’s STMap node or other VFX applications.

View all Lens Module tutorials.


Stereoscopic Workflow

Stereo 3D planar tracking, masking, and object removal workflow.

Mocha supports native stereo 3D and 360/VR stereo formats. This unique workflow uses planar tracking analysis on “both eye views” to reduce manual offsets and tedious keyframe work on stereo 3D rotoscoping, tracking, 3D camera solve, and object removal.

Mocha Pro is the ultimate companion for stereo 360° projects in Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro. Watch Video


3D Camera Solver

Solve 3D match moving capabilities with planar ease.

Unlike feature based camera tracking, Mocha solves the 3D camera based on user-selected planar data. This fast and easy-to-use solution is ideal for set extensions, 3D text, and particle tracking. Additionally the 3D solver can be used to assist other 3D tracking applications on difficult shots with low detail or significant foreground occlusions.

Export to FBX for Flame and Nuke support or install the free AE 3D Track Import plug-in to paste into an After Effects composition.

360/VR

Optimized for 360/VR

Award-winning 360° video tools for tracking and masking, horizon stabilization, camera and object removal, nadir patching, and spherical video post.

Now remove static 360 cameras without tracking in Mocha Pro 2023, using the “Static Scene” option!

A native mono and stereo 360° optimized workflow simplifies spherical video post-production challenges. Work across seams with less pre-comps, nesting, or rendering.
