Planar tracking is a technique used in CGI (computer-generated imagery) to accurately track the motion and position of an object within a 2D plane, typically within a video clip. It involves analyzing the movement of a selected region of the image, such as a flat surface or pattern, and using that data to create a tracking data that can be used to composite digital elements into the scene.

This technique is used in a variety of applications, such as adding visual effects or graphics to live-action footage, or replacing a portion of an image with a different element. For example, a common use of planar tracking is to replace a computer screen or billboard in a video with a custom image or animation. Planar tracking works by analyzing the pixels in the selected region of the image, looking for patterns and features that can be used to accurately determine the position and motion of the surface over time. This data is then used to create a tracking data that can be used to composite digital elements into the scene.

Mocha Pro is a most powerful software and plugin for planar and sub-planar motion tracking, rotoscoping, object removal, image stabilization, and new PowerMesh tracking. The program has the best algorithm for planar tracking and used in all tasks related to compositing. Rock solid planar tracking is at the heart of all Mocha Pro modules. VFX artists turn to Mocha for its ease of use and reliability when faced with the most difficult shots.

Mocha is versatile, so use it the way you want – as a standalone application, or as a plugin in your favorite host. Mocha Pro can export tracking, roto shapes, lens calibration and 3D data in a wide variety of formats, or render to file or back to your host.

This downloadable training series contains ~3 hours of essential training to help you get up-and-running with Mocha Pro’s interface and tool set. Perfect for a beginner or any Mocha user who wants to work more quickly. Watch our free video tutorial on the basics of work and the interface in the program –

The course should have something for everyone, no matter the skill level. It is definitely well suited to give newcomers a great base to build on while also having a little gem here and there for everyone who has done similar things for years already.

Usage Mocha Pro

Mocha Pro is commonly used in the film and television industry for a variety of applications, such as visual effects compositing, motion graphics, and color correction.

Here are some of the common use cases for Mocha Pro:

Planar tracking: Mocha Pro’s planar tracking algorithm can track the movement of objects in a 2D plane, even when they are obscured by other objects or move off-screen. This makes it an ideal tool for adding visual effects, graphics, or other elements to a shot.

Rotoscoping: Mocha Pro includes advanced rotoscoping tools, which allow artists to isolate objects in a shot and create precise matte masks. This is particularly useful for compositing digital elements into live-action footage, or for removing unwanted elements from a shot.

Object removal: Mocha Pro’s Remove Module allows artists to easily remove unwanted objects from a shot, such as wires, rigs, or even people. The software automatically generates a clean plate based on the surrounding pixels, and can be used to create a seamless final result.

Camera tracking: Mocha Pro can also be used for camera tracking, allowing artists to match the movement of the camera in a live-action shot. This is useful for adding 3D elements to a scene, or for stabilizing shaky footage.

Stabilization: Mocha Pro’s stabilization tools allow artists to remove unwanted camera shake or motion from a shot. This is particularly useful for handheld footage or shots taken from moving vehicles.
