Imagineer Systems mocha is the Swiss army knife of the compositing and VFX world. Using its planar tracker, you can get great motion tracking data from very complex footage, even tracking through motion blur. The results can be used to drive lots of different effects, from match moving and image stabilization to corner pins for screen replacement or background enhancements. Learn to motion track your own footage with mocha, and use its rotoscoping tools to create complex masks and roto splines, in this course with Ben Brownlee. Ben also provides an upfront quick start guide for VFX designers that just need a quick refresher, and walks through Correct Lens Distortion and Camera Solver, advanced modules in mocha AE and mocha Pro. Regardless of your skill level, these tutorials will prepare you to confidently use mocha to solve different motion tracking challenges.
