Affordable Annual Subscription: Mocha Pro delivers professional tools at artist level prices. Annual subscriptions for Adobe start at only $295/year or bundle with Silhouette Paint for greater savings!

2020.5 is a free update for customers on an active upgrade & support plan or annual subscription.

  • Improved Planar Tracking, Up to 4x Faster Motion Blur Rendering and more new features.
  • New Autodesk Flame Gmask Tracer: export roto and tracking directly to Gmask Tracer nodes with axis transformations Watch Video
  • Improved Media support. New Gstreamer media engine in standalone application improves file reading. Formats such as AVCHD and MXF that were previously unsupported are now supported to read properly, including ProRes support on Windows and Linux. Updated Red Camera support.
  • Updated OpenColorIO color management include streamlined viewer settings, new preference tab and improved workflow for both standalone and plug-in.
  • Mega Plate module: use planar tracking and temporal frame analysis to create extended stitched frames for advanced effects and clean up tasks
  • Area Brush: dynamic new paint tool with Quick Mask mode for fast creation of tracking and masking layers. Now improved with Gap Fill and keyboard shortcuts.


Mega Plate is a unique new module building on Mocha Pro’s most powerful core technologies — planar tracking and temporal frame analysis — to create a stitched extended frame for visual effects tasks.

Working with Mega Plates is a new way to visualize and work on a larger than raster “Mega” canvas for common VFX tasks such as object removal, clean plating, sky replacements, matte painting, and set extensions.


Area Brush is a new paint tool that speeds up Mocha’s most common core task — creating shapes.

Area Brush with Quick Mask mode brings fluid gestural paint functionality into Mocha to define planar tracking and masking search areas.

Instead of clicking and dragging spline points, add and subtract paint strokes are converted to vector splines — greatly speeding up and simplifying multi-shape tracking and masking set-ups.

The Area Brush also supports Wacom tablets for pressure-sensitive scaling.


Mocha Pro supports OpenColorIO color management for consistent and predictable color display across industry workflows. Version 2020.5 now introduces major improvements to Mocha’s OCIO workflow.

OCIO support is compatible with the Academy Color Encoding Specification (ACES) and enables improved color-managed workflows with high-end post-production and VFX applications such as Silhouette, Foundry’s NUKE, Autodesk Flame, Avid Media Composer, and more.



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

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


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.

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.

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.

Smooth camera jitter and lock down shots with the Stabilize Module.

The stabilize module can lock down camera motion or stabilize moving objects based on planar tracking. 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 clean-ups 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 is the ultimate companion for stereo 360° projects in Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro. Watch Video


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.

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.
