What is mocha?
mocha is award winning tracking software developed by Imagineer Systems. Built upon a renowned Planar Tracking image engine, mocha follows “pixel patterns” through the most difficult conditions including objects that go off-screen, objects that are partially obscured, even out of focus footage. This technology drives our products and is licensed to technology partners.
Tools for Artists and Filmmakers
mocha has a proven record on countless high profile film & television projects including:The Wolf of Wall Street, The Hobbit, the Harry Potter film series, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and many more. From the Adobe bundled mocha AE CC up to mocha Pro, our products help artists and editors solve problems.

New: mocha Pro 5 plug-in options for Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro and Avid Media Composer!
New plug-in option introduces fast & efficient workflow using host's media engine.
Launch mocha Pro as a plug-in from within your favorite editing and effects hosts. The plug-in workflow uses the host’s media engine and project format, reducing the need for transcoding or external file management. Now supporting Avid Media Composer (AVX) and Adobe Creative Cloud (After Affect Effects & Premiere Pro). OFX support for Nuke, Resolve and more coming soon.
Award-winning tracker, now updated with GPU acceleration!
Our renowned planar tracking has now been updated in mocha Pro 5 for speed and efficiency with GPU tracking and plug-in options. Planar tracking is at the heart of all mocha Pro modules and is used to drive 2D & 3D tracking, roto-masking, object removal and more. Unlimited tracking layers and advanced AdjustTrack interface can handle reflections, occlusions, noise, even areas with motion blur or low details. Learn how mocha’s planar tracking has earned its place as the “go to tool” for difficult motion tracking tasks.
Advanced Roto Tools
mocha Pro drastically reduces time spent on manual masking & key-framing projects.
X-spline and Bezier tools are designed to quickly create and edit detailed roto shapes. When linked to mocha’s planar tracking, roto shapes inherit motion and perspective, dramatically reducing manual keyframe work. Advanced tools for shape editing include per-point edge feathering, join layers tool, transform tool, group layers and more make mocha Pro the ideal system for rotoscoping.
Automatically remove unwanted elements, wires, rigs and tracking marks with ease.
mocha Pro’s Remove Module is an amazing alternative to traditional clone and paint techniques for getting rid of unwanted pixels and removing objects. It automatically detects and blends pixels from other frames with little user input, offering massive time savings. mocha Pro’s clean plate functionality imports and corrects fixed frames for digital beauty work and matte painting.
Render accurate match moves and screen inserts with motion blur or mesh warp distortion.
mocha Pro 5′s Insert Module allows you to render an image onto your tracked surface within mocha Pro or back to your host timeline with the new plug-in option. Composite with realistic motion blur or render out the tracked insert. Powerful mesh warp distortion tool allows the user to wrap and bend inserts onto non flat surfaces. Combines with Lens Module for realistic VFX compositing on distorted footage.
Calibrate, correct and remove lens distortion.
This simple and easy-to-use interface allows users to calibrate the distortion introduced by camera lenses. Unwanted lens distortion can be removed or matched for realistic compositing. Export lens data or render correction in the new mocha Pro 5 plug-in option.
3D Camera Solver
Camera tracking for 3D visual effects.
Solve 3D match moving capabilities with planar ease. Unlike feature based tracking, mocha solves the 3D camera based on user-selected planes. This fast and easy-to-use solution is ideal for set extensions, 3D text and particle tracking. Additionally the 3D solver can be used to assist other 3D tracking applications on difficult shots with low detail or significant foreground occlusions.
Stabilize Module Smooth camera jitter and lock down shots. The stabilize module can lock down camera motion or stabilize moving objects for visual effects and finishing work. A smooth option with selectable anchor frames helps reduce high frequency jitters while maintaining original camera motion. Center, scale or crop stabilized footage based on user driven planar tracking.

Stereo 3D planar tracking, masking and object removal workflow.
mocha Pro 5 supports native stereo 3D. This workflow uses planar tracking analysis on “both eye views” to reduce manual offsets and tedious keyframe work on stereo 3D rotoscoping, tracking, 3D camera solve and object removal.
