Problems Tracking Land to Get Outline Shape in AE?
on Jan 29, 2019 at 2:03:35 am

I'm using AE 2019 and Mocha Pro 2019.
I have a drone shot of a piece of land. I want to track an outline of the land and apply the shape data to a stroke in AE to show the borders. I attached 2 screenshots. The one in Mocha has straight lines. The mask from Mocha that is applied to AE has curves.
I'm not new to Mocha but I am new to Mocha 2019. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong or why the shape data from Mocha in AE has curves?
Thanks!

In Mocha, we use X splines, but AE does not, so when the splines get converted to beziers there can sometimes be changes between the spline in Mocha and the spline in AE. However, you can simply remove the offending curved point in AE and it should fix the problem.

Please let me know if you have any more questions and I will be happy to help you.

Cheers,
Mary
