MochaBlend C4D – Intro Video

February 9, 2016 in Uncategorized Tags: ,

MochaBlend C4D is the exciting new plug-in for Maxon Cinema 4D that converts mocha’s 2D planar tracking into 3D motion. This new tool delivers innovative new ways for 3D artists to work with tracking & roto data.

  • Single Plane Solver: Solve camera & objects, perspective tracks & non-perspective tracks.
  • MochaBlend C4D converts roto-splines from mocha into animated geometry with depth that can interact with both physics and simulations inside 3D animation programs.
  • MochaBlend C4D imports mocha’s camera-solve data, more easily, and with more options.
  • AE Exporter: Includes MochaBlend Exporter for Adobe After Effects. Export animated masks from AE to C4D!

Notes: MochaBlend supports C4D versions R14 and above. MochaBlend supports Adobe bundled mocha AE for 2D track import, but requires either mocha Pro or mocha Plus v 4.1 for mocha’s mask support and 3D Camera Solve support.

MochaBlend C4D Basics #2: Creating 3D motion from a non-perspective mocha track

in Uncategorized Tags: ,

In this tutorial, you’ll learn about creating 3D motion from a non-perspective track in mocha. We’ll be using MochaBlend C4D’s 2.5D solver to create the 3D motion. You’ll learn how to analyze the motion in your shot so you can both track it properly in mocha, and choose the correct solver in MochaBlend C4D.

Tutorial: Take Combination with mocha Pro & mocha AE

January 19, 2016 in mocha AE,mocha Pro,Tutorials Tags: ,

In this advanced mocha tutorial, Mary Poplin, shows how to create a seamless take combination from two hand held shots. Covers mocha planar tracking, stabilization, insert module and workflow.

This technique can be used to make one actor into a set of twins (ex: Legend and The Parent Trap), to retime and combine performances (used in movies such as Bridesmaids and The Hangover) or to create the illusion of one long, continuous take (seen in films Gone Girl and Bird Man).

This tutorial assumes that you know the basics of mocha tracking and masking.

This tutorial covers three different mocha techniques: simple mocha Pro standalone compositing, Nuke compositing and Adobe After Effects compositing – with the bundled mocha for AE.

Replacing Actor’s Eyes for Digital Performance Enhancement

January 8, 2016 in Homepage Tags: , ,

Using After Effects and mocha AE, Product Manager Martin Brennand shows you how to track and replace an actor’s eyes when they accidentally look at the camera.
Using similar techniques you can quickly track, mask and replace performances, either to fix mistakes or to get creative with your shots.

This tutorial applies to mocha AE, mocha Plus and mocha Pro.

mocha Pro: Patching & Removing Obscured Objects with Insert Module

December 2, 2015 in Mocha,mocha Pro Tags: , , , ,

In this advanced tutorial, mocha guru, Mary Poplin, shows how to patch and remove objects using mocha Pro. Mary removes an unwanted element that is challenged by partially obscured and out of focus foreground objects.

This tutorial assumes that you know the basics of planar tracking, roto-masking and basic Adobe Photoshop. Also covers: überkey, feathered masks, and using the Insert Module to create multi-layer patches.

The Insert Module is found in mocha Pro.
