AWARD-WINNING PLANAR TRACKING


Mocha Pro is the world renowned software for planar tracking, rotoscoping and object removal. Essential to visual effects and post-production workflows, Mocha has been recognized with prestigious Academy and Emmy Awards for contribution to the film and television industry. Mocha Pro has recently been used on global hits including The Mandalorian, Stranger Things, Avengers: Endgame, and many more.

WHAT'S NEW

Mocha Pro 2021

A significant new release for tracking, roto and VFX.

  • PowerMesh: Mocha’s planar tracking engine now handles warped surfaces with speed and accuracy. PowerMesh sub-surface tracking drives warp stabilization, mesh warped roto-splines, and more. Export dense mesh tracking to many hosts with the new Alembic exporter.
  • AdjustTrack 2.0: Improved track editing takes the pain out of correcting the most difficult tracking shots.
  • Python Scripting: Powerful Python Script Editor is now included in the Mocha Pro plugin for flexible development.

Watch the Mocha 2021 What's New Overview


PowerMesh

The next evolution of Mocha. PowerMesh enables a powerful new sub-planar tracking engine for VFX, roto and stabilization. Warped surface tracking and roto that sticks.

Track complex organic surfaces through occlusions and blur using Mocha’s intuitive layer based interface. Simple to use and faster than most optical flow based techniques.

Apply to source files for realistic match moves, convert to AE Nulls to drive motion graphics, render a mesh warped stabilize/reverse stabilize plate for compositing, or export dense tracking data to host applications.

Watch the Intro to Power Mesh tutorial


Alembic Workflows

PowerMesh dense tracking data can be exported to Adobe After Effects (via Nulls) or choose the new Alembic universal export to support Foundry NUKE, Autodesk Flame, Blackmagic Fusion and 3D applications like Cinema4D or Maya.

Improved Adjusttrack 2.0

Correcting slipping or drifting tracking errors is easier than ever before with the significantly improved AdjustTrack module. Use dynamic offset adjustments to achieve perfect results on the most difficult tracking shots. Watch Now.

Once limited to 4-point perspective fixes, AdjustTrack now includes all track parameters to be more effective in editing data — when objects go off-screen, or become occluded by foreground objects.

Adjusted track data can be exported to a wide variety of hosts (see chart) or used internally to drive rotoscoping and advanced tasks such as object removal and image stabilization.


Python Script Editor

Professional broadcast, post-production, and visual effects companies rely on adaptable tools to fit into custom pipelines and workflows. Use Mocha Pro’s Python Script Editor to create custom tools, batch process layers, or even integrate with asset management tools such as Shotgun or FTrack.

Mocha Pro 2021 adds Python Scripting to the Mocha Pro plugin, creating full feature parity with the Mocha Pro standalone application. Learn More

WHY MOCHA PRO?

Mocha Rocks

Rock solid planar tracking is at the heart of all Mocha Pro modules and is used to drive tracking, masking, object removal, stabilization, and much more. Unlimited tracking layers and an updated AdjustTrack module helps handle reflections, occlusions, noise, and even areas with motion blur or low details.

New PowerMesh sub-planar tracking features a groundbreaking fast and efficient workflow for digital beauty work and the most difficult “fix it in post” challenges.

Roto with less

Mocha’s masking workflow features planar tracked spline tools to speed up shape creation and reduce manual keyframes.

Magnetic Splines with edge-snapping assistance help create the most detailed mask shapes — without requiring drawing skills.

Don’t paint yourself into a corner. Mocha’s masking tools always remain vector for continuous editing capabilities and speed on high-resolution projects.

Plug-in option

Mocha Pro’s integrated plug-in option delivers a fast & efficient workflow using the host’s media engine. Launch Mocha Pro from within your favorite editing and effects hosts.

Plug-in Support:

Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, Autodesk Flame, Foundry NUKE, Blackmagic Design Fusion, Vegas Pro, HitFilm, and Silhouette


GPU-Accelerated Object Removel

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 and paint techniques for getting rid of unwanted pixels and removing objects. It automatically detects temporal clean frames to blend and align pixels with little user input. It's like Content Aware on steroids!

Fix it in post! The Remove Module is one of the most popular reasons After Effects artists upgrade from the Adobe bundled Mocha AE.

Insert Module

Render accurate match moves and screen inserts with realistic motion blur or mesh warp distortions.

Render graphics onto your tracked screen surface within Mocha Pro or back to your host timeline with new plug-in option. Combines with Lens Module for realistic VFX compositing on lens distorted footage.

View all Insert Module tutorials.


Stabilize & Reverse Stabilizations

Smooth camera motion or pin object motion with the Stabilize Module.

New! Users can choose to stabilize moving objects based on planar tracking or new PowerMesh tracking. Artists can now work on an inverse-warped flattened surface for paint fixes. Original motion is easily propagated back to the original.

For general purpose editing tasks, 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.

Lens Module

Calibrate, correct and remove lens distortion.

This simple and easy-to-use interface allows users to calibrate the distortion introduced by camera lenses. Unwanted lens distortion can be removed or matched for realistic compositing.

For 360/VR, a simplified Undistort/Distort workflow makes mono or stereo clean-ups on equirectangular footage easy.

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

360/VR Post-Production Toolkit

Award-winning 360° video tools for tracking and masking, horizon stabilization, Camera and Object Removal, Nadir Patching, and spherical video post.

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