mocha Fundamentals Chapter 11: Mask Shapes and Roto Part 2

What you’ll learn:

  • Effective rotoscoping with camera stabilization
  • Unlink tracking
  • Dealing with blur and motion blur
  • mocha’s überkey

Following on from the previous exercise, we look at another technique for using mocha for rotoscoping work.

We stabilize the camera using a technique called “Unlink tracking” to effectively track the background with the least amount of effort.

Once we have then created and animated our mask shape, we explore methods for dealing with roto work on motion blurred and out of focus objects. There a number of techniques, including mocha’s built-in tools to deal with Motion Blur and Edge Width. We see how well this translate into After Effects upon export.
