Mocha AE v3 Nodelocked Upgrade for CS4-CC (Electronic Download) from Imagineer Systems Ltd. is an upgrade from any previous version of mocha AE or from any version of Adobe After Effects between CS4 to CC. This nodelocked edition provides you with one license that you can activate and use alternately on two computers.

Mocha AE v3 is a standalone rotoscoping software centered on an award-winning planar tracker. It exports to After Effects, Final Cut Pro 6 and 7, Motion 4 and 5, Boris FX BCC, and HitFilm 2 Ultimate, and it can also export to Media Composer, Vegas, and Premiere via Boris FX BCC. Other than a rotoscoping tool, mocha AE v3 also features a lens calibration tool and a 3D camera solver. The difference between mocha AE and mocha Pro is that the Pro version has several more tools, such as an object insertion tool, can export to more applications, and has two more rotoscoping functions -- it can render mattes with motion blur and can merge projects.

The planar tracker, honored in 2013 with the Science & Engineering Academy Award, tracks planes instead of points, and can track moving objects that move within a frame, that exit a frame, or that enter a frame. Planes are entire surfaces that you get to define by drawing simple splines around objects. These surfaces are large areas of pixel data that the tracker will follow precisely. Once you define a surface area, you can then apply rotoscoping based on it. Mocha features two spline types -- X splines, generally better for tracking perspective motion, and versatile, industry standard Bézier splines. Multiple splines of both types are applicable at the same time to ensure a continual and unobstructed track across multiple surfaces.

The planar tracker doesn't require any clearly outstanding details to stick to and can even track a completely white surface, and it can track straight through motion blur without any disruption. Points, however, are limited to detail-full areas and are susceptible to being outsmarted by blurs. Other than tracking a moving object, the planar tracker can also track a stationary one in a moving shot, such as tracking text on a stationary store awning that a camera is dollying in on.
