Mocha Pro 2020 is Now Available!
The new Mocha Pro 2020 offers a new Mega Plate module, Area Brush tool, and OpenColorIO support to speed up and streamline visual effects and post-production workflows.
Mocha Pro 2020 Highlights:
New! Mega Plate extracts a seamless larger-than-raster image from moving camera footage to complete advanced VFX tasks including set extensions, clean-ups, removing unwanted objects, and repositioning footage. The unique module builds upon Mocha’s most powerful core technologies — planar track and temporal frame analysis — to create a stitched extended frame.
New! Area Brush with Quick Mask mode brings paint-like functionality to Mocha, allowing users to define large tracking search areas with a simple quick gestural stroke. Added and subtracted paint strokes convert to vector splines to speed up tracking and masking tasks.
New! OpenColorIO (OCIO) support gives Mocha users consistent and predictable color displays across industry workflows. Compatible with the Academy Color Encoding Specification (ACES) and enables improved color-managed workflows with high-end post-production and VFX applications such as Boris FX Silhouette, Foundry’s NUKE, Autodesk Flame, Avid Media Composer, and more.
Mocha is the world’s most recognized and powerful planar tracking tool for VFX and post-production. Mocha Pro features GPU-accelerated tracking and object removal, advanced masking with edge-snapping, stabilization, lens calibration, 3D camera solver, stereo 360/VR support, and more.
Top 5 Reasons Adobe Users Use Mocha Pro:
Advanced Features Adds more advanced planar tracking, roto and VFX features than the bundled Mocha AE
Premiere Pro Support For editors who want to do more masking and tracking without opening AE, Mocha Pro plug-in can be run inside both After Effects + Premiere Pro
Roto & Masking Create accurate masks in 40-50% less time with magnetic splines, edge-snapping, and variable per-point edge feathering
Object Removal and Stabilization Best of breed effects tools are often needed when Warp/Stabilizer or Content-Aware Fill do not do the trick!
Collaboration and Workflow Pro can export tracking and roto data to industry-standard VFX applications, including Nuke, Flame, Fusion, Silhouette, HitFilm, and more
THE INDUSTRY’S MOST RELIABLE TRACKING
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.
ROTO WITH LESS KEYFRAMES
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.
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 For:
Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro
Avid Media Composer
Blackmagic Design Fusion
GPU-ACCELERATED OBJECT REMOVAL
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.
Mocha masking tools are also found inside Continuum & Sapphire filters!
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.
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 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.
