Q. I am not sure the differences between your products. Which do I choose?
A. With the mocha Pro 5 release we have simplified our offering. Choose from the mocha Pro plug-in or standalone options.
The compare products chart shows the differences between mocha Pro 5 and the Adobe & HitFilm bundled mocha products (mocha AE / mocha HitFilm).
Q. Do I need the standalone or the plug-in option?
A. The standalone and the plug-in option share an almost identical feature set and the ability to export tracking and roto data to most popular formats. The main difference: the plug-in runs inside your host application and uses the host’s media engine whereas the standalone does not require a host software.
If you only use only Adobe After Effects & Premiere OR Avid, you may only require the Adobe or Avid specific plug-in. If you use Adobe, Avid, Nuke, Resolve or Fusion, you many want the Multi-host option.
If you have dedicated roto and tracking artists OR want to build an assistant station dedicated to mocha Pro, choose the standalone option.
Please note: the mocha Pro 5 plug-in is not available as a floating license. If you have a large site that requires floating licenses, please contact our sales team for pricing.
