Can you use Mocha Tracking with Maya?
Can you use Mocha Tracking with Maya?

I have tracked some footage in mocha but need to give the tracking data to someone who will be animating in Maya. How is this workflow done?

I just have mocha that came with after effects. Do I need mocha pro for this? If so, is there a trial version to see if this workflow works for me or not before paying $400+?

Yes pretty basic.

Tracked footage in Mocha (free version that came with AE) and I have an animator who needs to use that tracking data in Maya in order to animate some 3d elements that I will then composite back in AE once he renders several passes for me to import.

Mocha lite only copies to clipboard or to a text file. He is saying he needs an .FBX format and I notice Mocha pro does that but not the version I have.
