  1. Mocha Pro tutorial: Solving for Complex Object Removes.

    In this advanced VFX video tutorial, Mary Poplin reviews the steps she used to remove multiple objects from a moving shot with the Mocha Pro plug-in from Boris FX. Covers advanced tips for planar tracking and object removal.

    Combining multiple mask layers for speed.
    Consider geometry and planes - when objects pass various planes, you will need multiple tracked background surfaces for best remove results.
    Consider how the background is moving and isolate areas that move differently than one another for best results.

    The Mocha Pro plug-in supports Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, NUKE, Fusion, HitFilm, Vegas Pro and more.

  2. Object removal made easy with Mocha Pro. Tutorial by Mary Poplin covers Mocha Pro running inside Adobe Premiere Pro with Photoshop for generating the clean plate.

    Removing graffiti on a moving object can be a very difficult post-production task, but with the Mocha Pro plug-in for Adobe (and a little Photoshop cloning), we can make this an automated task.

    1. Mocha Pro is applied as a plug-in inside Premiere.
    2. The side of the camper is tracked with Mocha's planar tracking.
    3. A mask layer for the graffiti is linked to the first track. (Layer order is important!)
    4. In the Remove Module, "create clean plate" this exports a frame to file.
    5. Open this clip in Photoshop to paint out the one frame. Save.
    6. In Mocha Pro, select "use cleanplates exclusively".
    7. Choose desired Illumination settings.
    8. Exit to Premiere and turn on Remove Module render.

    The Mocha Pro plug-in also supports After Effects, Avid Media COmposer, Nuke, Fusion and Sony Vegas. Learn more at:
