Beyond Tracking in mocha Pro : In-depth and In Action


Like mocha Pro itself, this course builds on the Imagineer’s industry-leading planar tracking software.  Leverage those skills to speed up often arduous VFX and compositing jobs directly within mocha Pro, such as object removal, product replacements and even stabilizing a shot without having to lose quality by upscaling.

Not about the buttons – all about the techniques

The tutorials go in-depth, not just into the interface or features, but how you analyse your shots before you even start, to get the best results.  Even with difficult to track footage that would be impossible to track with standard point trackers.  Tracking is fundamental to VFX work, but even the best tracking data is worthless if you can’t use it correctly.

Learn the Simple Workflow Techniques that Enhance Accuracy, Quality & Speed

Beyond Tracking in mocha Pro obviously focuses mainly on mocha Pro.  We do take brief intervals out to companion applications, such as Nuke, After Effects, Final Cut Pro and Motion.  Footage and projects (where appropriate) and you are encouraged to use the media and disect the finished projects, to hone you own skills.  Some projects may not open in applications prior to the latest version.

This course is given by Ben Brownlee, a VFX artist with over 13 years of experience in the industry.  He has worked on commercials, broadcast and feature films and has given training to leading broadcasters across the world.  He has also been working with Imagineer Systems mocha since its release, and has previously designed courses covering tracking and rotoscoping.

This training is designed for people with some knowledge of effects work.  The first part of the course contains all the information you need to get started if you’ve never worked with mocha Pro before, and still has enough meat for those that have.

Just Like Being in the Room

All recordings are made at full HD, 1920×1080 resolution, so you get the clearest, sharpest view of the action.  Coupled with that, the vast majority of the included sample shots are also 1080P.  Inobtrusive highlights guide you to the important areas of the screen, so you never lose track of the presenter’s mouse.
