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.

Mocha 2019.5 now features a new edge-snapping shortcut to assist spline animation. Watch video

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


The Mocha Essentials workspace brings the power of Mocha to novice level users with a simplified, elegant, and easy-to-learn interface.

Tracking & masking is now faster by reducing complexity and focusing the Mocha interface on the most essential icons and tools. Switch to Classic for advanced modules and customize and save workspaces for flexibility.


Mocha’s amazing Remove Module has been rewritten to optimize GPU video hardware for up to 4-5x render speed improvements on removals and clean plating projects. For high-resolution 4K projects and 360/VR video resolutions, the resulting speed improvement is a massive time-saver. View the speed test

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


Mocha Pro’s spherical video workflow tools were awarded a technology award from the Advanced Imaging Society for innovation in stereoscopic 360/VR post-production. Learn More



Planar tracking is at the heart of all Mocha modules and is used to drive tracking, roto-masking, object removal, and more. Unlimited tracking layers and the advanced AdjustTrack interface can handle reflections, occlusions, noise, and even areas with motion blur or low details.

Learn how Mocha’s award-winning tracking has earned a reputation as the go-to tool on Hollywood films and must-see TV. Read our featured Mocha customer stories.

New Magnetic Spline Tools and Edge-Snapping! Mocha Pro is the ideal masking tool for effects or color correction. When linked to Mocha’s planar tracking, X-Spline & Bezier shapes inherit motion and perspective, dramatically reducing manual keyframe work.

Advanced tools for shape editing: per-point edge feathering, join layers tool, transform tool, group layers, and motion blur.

Mocha masking tools are also found inside Continuum & Sapphire filters!


Now with faster with GPU rendering! 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.

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 2019 or back to your host timeline with the new plug-in option. Combines with Lens Module for realistic VFX compositing on distorted footage.

Smooth camera jitter and lock down shots.

The Stabilize Module can lock down camera motion or stabilize moving objects based on planar tracking. The 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.

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 cleanups on equirectangular footage easy.

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 2019 is the ultimate companion for stereo 360 projects in Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro.


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 or native Adobe After Effects format


Mocha Pro 2019 now includes all of the features from Mocha VR for mono and stereoscopic 360 video workflows.

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

The native 360 optimized workflow simplifies spherical video post-production challenges. Work across seams with less pre-comps, nesting or rendering.


Tracking in Mocha is easy for 360 creators to learn. Robust planar tracking simplifies the workflow for advanced motion tracking, masking, object removal, and horizon stabilization on 360 video projects.

Our patented “stereoscopic planar tracking” engine calculates disparity to ensure proper calibration and save hours of time on S3D post tasks.

Stereo masks can be exported or rendered for color grading and effects.


The unique stereo workflow uses planar tracking analysis on “both eye views” to solve disparity and reduce tedious duplication work on stereo rotoscoping, tracking, object removals, and stabilization. Work on a “hero” master view and the track and roto corrections ripple to the other eye view for reduced manual keyframing. Render back to the host or export stereo roto shapes back to a wide variety of hosts including Adobe, Nuke, and more.

As an integrated plug-in for hosts such as Adobe, Avid, and OFX, Mocha 2019 adds a practical stereo top/bottom workflow that does not require layer duplication or manual offsets. Supports common stereo formats: top/bottom, side-by-side, and multi-stream.


Reduce shaky motion for improved VR headset viewing!

The Reorient Module drastically improves nausea-inducing VR experiences by smoothing or stabilizing shaky, handheld, and drone captured footage. Driven by robust planar tracking, a user can even track and stabilize difficult and out of focus footage. Reorient on its own can be used to reposition equirectangular footage.

Stabilize the horizon line directly inside of Adobe Premiere Pro


New! GPU-accelerated Remove Module. Remove camera rigs, shadows, and unwanted pixels!

Mocha’s famous Remove Module now works on 360 videos by analyzing temporal frames and automatically removing unwanted elements for massive time-savings.

User-generated clean plates can be linked for removing when clean pixels are not detected in the shot. Illumination filtering analyzes luminance shifts for proper lighting and scene compositing.

Learn to optimize your removes with this advanced tutorial


The plug-in based lens correction workflow converts between lat/long and rectilinear for a simple workflow to add titles, graphics, patches, and non-360 enabled filters to your 360 projects.
