Hi guys, I am eager to learn Mocha. I know lots of ways to track footage, like AE Cam track tools, Boujou, C4D. I am a very experienced user of all mentioned programs. And yet, whenever I start using Mocha (now it is 4th version) I curse and leave for another year. I saw amazing works online and they draw a mask on any shitty object and they get amazing track. Whenever I try to do that with FullHD well lit and filmed footage - it is good only for most basic movements and then the tracking corners (mask) jumps from its place. Would anyone else experience difficulties with Mocha? Any advise? Not really sure why it happens, but it is so sad that so many people say it is one of the best ways to track while for me it is always a pain without a single proper result. Why??????

Mocha does not work well with highly-compressed video, which you may have. Try transcoding a problem clip to an image sequence to use with Mocha.
