Boris FX MOCHA PRO
AWARD-WINNING PLANAR TRACKING
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 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.
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!
Screen Inserts and Match Moves
Render accurate match moves and screen inserts with realistic motion blur or warped distortions. The Insert Module can now be driven by PowerMesh and has improved compositing with higher quality sub-sampling and blend modes.
Use the redesigned Grid Warp tool to bend and deform insert elements to match curved and distorted surfaces.
New track preprocessing and right-click on surface improves general tracking challenges!
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.
Updated 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.
Now faster with spline-based calibration and the ability to save calibrations settings for lenses. Lens Calibration data can also be exported and read into Nuke’s STMap node or other VFX applications.
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.
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.
