Mocha AE puzzle
by adam taylor on Aug 15, 2013 at 2:44:23 pm
I have tracked a shot in Mocha - fairly simple 1 layer with no masks. It does have sheer and perspective selected.
the track looks great in Mocha - the grid locks to it, the built in logo locks to it.
Yet when i export the transformation data, paste it into a Null (then delete the Anchor Point keyframes) and parent the replacement logo to the null, the result looks terrible, with the graphic wandering around all over the place.
Any idea what i might be doing wrong?

I'm glad you've solved your issue. I'd like to add that when exporting Transform Data to AE, other than deleting Anchor Point keyframes, you should also reset the value of the Anchor Point - if you've used a Null, the value should be [0,0]. You could of course right-click on the value and selected Reset from the Contextual Menu.
Most tutorials skip this reset. The benefit of the reset is that the Null now visually moves directly over the tracked area. There is no benefit to the tracking result but the Null's position is now positioned more intuitively as it conforms 1-1 to the tracked area.
