mocha Pro is the newest in Imagineer System’s mocha family and unites the best features from Mokey and Monet with the familiar mocha interface.? Get working fast within a day with Curious Turtle’s new training course – Beyond Tracking.? Like mocha Pro itself, this course builds on the Imagineer’s industry-leading planar tracking software.? Leverage those skills to speed up often arduous VFX and compositing jobs directly within mocha Pro, such as object removal, product replacements and even stabilizing a shot without having to lose quality by upscaling.

The tutorials go in-depth, not just into the interface or features, but how you analyse your shots before you even start, to get the best results.? Even with difficult to track footage that would be impossible to track with standard point trackers.? Tracking is fundamental to VFX work, but even the best tracking data is worthless if you can’t use it correctly.
