Review: Imagineer Systems' mocha Pro in Review at Renderosity

Posted by Sergio Rosa at Renderosity

"[Imagineer Systems] mocha Pro is the latest version of Imagineer Systems' planar tracking software. It combines the functionality of previously available products into one single package, making it easier since there is no longer the need to worry about different applications for different purposes.

As I said, mocha Pro is a planar tracking software (to learn about planar tracking, be sure to check out this video). Basically, it helps users rotoscope different features of any footage, and provides a set of spline masks that can be used for different purposes. For example, maybe you need to track the license plate of a car to replace the number with something else, or you might need to place a digital sign on top of a moving live-action truck. Rotoscoping is also a commonly used technique for stereoscopic conversion.

The workflow is simple. You draw splines on top of features you want to track. For example, if you need to track an actor's head, arm, or hand, you draw a spline around those features. You can draw either exact splines that follow the shape of an object, or splines that will loosely follow it, and you can use it to drive the movement of a more fitting spline later."
