  2. Imagineer Systems product specialist, Mary Poplin, shows 360 - Virtual Reality post-production tips for Adobe users! Previews the upcoming mocha Pro 5 plug-in working with Mettle's Skybox Studio.

    In this tutorial, we show how to use mocha Pro for masking and tracking on equirectangular (LatLong) footage. Skybox Studio is used to convert the distorted footage to a "flattened cubic cross" view and the new mocha Pro 5 plug-in is used for tracking & masking.

    **Note mocha Pro 5 plug-in is now in beta testing and available soon. mocha Pro 5 plug-in will allow users to access mocha via the host media engine to avoid pre-rendering for a dynamic workflow in Adobe, Avid, Nuke & more.***

  5. In this advanced mocha tutorial, Mary Poplin, shows how to create a seamless take combination from two hand held shots. Covers mocha planar tracking, stabilization, insert module and workflow.

    This technique can be used to make one actor into a set of twins (ex: Legend and The Parent Trap), to retime and combine performances (used in movies such as Bridesmaids and The Hangover) or to create the illusion of one long, continuous take (seen in films Gone Girl and Bird Man).

    This tutorial assumes that you know the basics of mocha tracking and masking.

    This tutorial covers three different mocha techniques: simple mocha Pro standalone compositing, Nuke compositing and Adobe After Effects compositing - with the bundled mocha for AE.
