Techniques for Tracking Problematic Screen Inserts with Mocha AE and After Effects CC

Imagineer Product Specialist Mary Poplin demonstrates tracking and inserting a screen insert that may prove challenging, using the strengths of the bundled Mocha AE planar tracking in conjunction with After Effects Creative Cloud version.

Some shots can be seemingly deceiving- appearing simple to track and apply a screen insert. However, with some shots you simply can’t understand the involvement until you get in there and give it a go.

In this short tutorial video, imagineer systems’ Product Specialist, Mary Poplin, shows you how to use the Adobe Creative Cloud bundled mocha AE CC to overcome difficult screen inserts with planar tracking

Showing how to initially compensate for some lens distortion, Mary walks through some of the challenging features in the shot which would include reflections, or having something in the shot obscure the screen that you are trying to replace.

Also of note, Imagineer Systems will be demonstrating the newest version of Mocha Pro at IBC 2013, and also hosting a meetup event, and will have Ben Brownlee, Mathias Möhl, and Jonas Hummelstrand presenting in the Imagineer booth at the conference. The mocha Meetup will be held in the Imagineer Systems IBC 2013 booth 7.J49 on Saturday, September 14th from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m.
