In this short tutorial, Mary will walk you through a medium difficulty shot with no tracking markers, plenty of lighting shifts, and lots of motion... using only a single cleanplate.
"mocha Pro is really great for beauty work, and with a little practice, you can get the traditionally time consuming job that is "roto paint" down to only a few minutes."
This is an example of how some motion tracking work was done for a video that i was working on while living in New York.
Yes, I know that the meme is long dead but my friends and I had a lot of fun throwing this thing together in our spare time. If you work with or around Audio Post guys you'll have heard or said a lot of what's in this video.
We shot on any Canon or Nikon we had laying around. The lights were whatever was in the room at the time. I edited it in Adobe Premiere CS6. Motion Graphics done in Adobe After Effects CS6. Camera tracking was done with The Foundry's Cameratracker. Roto work was done in Mocha for AE from Imagineer Systems.
Brendan Williams did all the audio post work in Pro Tools 9.
