I'm assuming that the track looks OK, solid in mocha but upon pasting the data into AE, the track goes awry. Such a case is often related to -
1) different frame rates being reported/used in mocha & AE
2) different pixel aspect ratios being reported/used in mocha & AE
3) different resolution being reported/used in mocha & AE
4) different duration being reported/used in mocha & AE (less common compared to the three aforementioned cases)

Therefore, ensure that these variables are correct and used accordingly in both mocha and AE.

Further, upon pasting the tracked data onto the Null in AE, delete all of the Null's Anchor Point properties and reset its value to 0. This step while not improving the tracked data in any way, ensures that the Null resides in exactly the same place where you placed your Surface Area in mocha. It's a visual assurance/cue that the data from mocha is accurately transported over to AE.
