Hi Guys

I need some help. I am currently about to start work on a film where I need to track a womans face and create masks on the face and eyes so that I can change the color of the eyes and face, and texture of the face as well. Her face etc moves around quite a bit and turns away so the shape does change from time to time. I find Mocha very useful but want to use the shape I am tracking from it as a mask in After Effects. Is this possible? I get the footage on Tuesday and have ten days to do the changes so your urgent help is needed. Everything I have tried has been unsuccessful thus far. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanx in advance for your help.
Gareth Wentzel

If you have AE CS5, you can paste the mocha shape directly into the mask channel by selecting the layer and under edit menu "paste mocha mask".

OR mocha shape plug-in allows the mocha shape data to be imported with edge feathering.

If you don't have CS5, the shape plug-in and mocha for AE v2 are available direct from Imagineer.
