Hey everyone, I've been struggling using the new in-built Mocha AE CC, even with all the tutorials available on the internet 😥
I can't seem to find one that explains properly how to get the tracking data out of it and just apply as many things as I want to it. In the old Mocha, I'd put the data onto a Null and parent everything I want tracked to that null. How would I go about doing that in this version?
The workflow really has not changed except that instead of using the clipboard copy/paste, you use the "create track button in the plug-in interface, than "Apply track data" to select the layer it applies to.
You could "create track" and select a Null layer to apply to or apply to another layer and copy/paste.
This video might help:
You might also appreciate the MochaImport+ workflow from aescripts:
With a bit of fiddling, and the video showing the corner pin tool's abilities compared to just a transform track, I've realised that maybe Mocha isn't quite what I should be use for the general tracking of a scene, most likely should be leaving that to 3D Camera Tracker, and use Mocha for tracking certain objects only.
I only say this because that script isn't free of course, and I want to see how much I can with just the base version of After Effects. But that plugin does look pretty rad!
Thanks Ross, I'm definitely a bit more clued in now!😄
