Imagineer Systems, creators of Mocha technology, will give NAB attendees a technology preview of new capabilities planned for the next release (version 4) of Mocha Pro and Mocha AE planar motion tracking and visual effects software.
The technology demonstration will showcase new tools for stereoscopic workflows in 3D filmmaking and roto masking technology designed to reduce manual keyframing. The team will also demonstrate Python scripting capabilities that allow customers to integrate Mocha within custom workflows and general improvements to the Mocha toolset.
In the new stereo 3D toolset, the workflow and support for native stereoscopic projects includes stereo roto, planar tracking, object remove and camera solve features.
The software will also include export formats and support for more host applications. Roto and masking improvements will reduce manual keyframing organic shapes. And the software will include customizable keyboard shortcuts.
Customers who purchase the shipping Mocha AE or Mocha Pro during NAB will receive a free upgrade to version 4 on the release date.
