Can't make Mocha remove module work
on Jul 14, 2014 at 4:00:33 pm

I started using Mocha today, and I'm tying to get an idea how to use the Remove module.

I tried to remove the actor from the attached shot.

I did:
1) Draw a shape around the actor
2) Track it - the camera moves
3) Draw a larger shape areound the actor, that includes the background
4) track it
5) Move the subject layer above bg layer
6) Hit the Render current frame button

The actor is still there, nothing changed. Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks

Maybe you don't even need Mocha.
If you remove the actor from the shot, all that remains are static items. Do you have parts of the shot, perhaps at the beginning, perhaps at the end, where the actor is in a different postion so you can build a clean plate?

Thanks Paul, I was able to delete the actor by bringing a frame to Photoshop, creating a clean plate, bringing it back to AE and motion-track the background.

However, my goal is to learn Mocha, as it might make things way easier in some situations. I don't see what I'm doing wrong...
