In this series of tutorials, we will be taking a look at our first day in mocha AE. We'll start by learning how to access mocha from inside of After Effects. We'll get familiar with the interface and the different tools we'll be using throughout the course. We'll learn how powerful mocha is by tracking a simple planar surface. Next, we'll import tracking data into After Effects and apply it to a layer in our project and learn how to make adjustments. We'll also track more problematic surfaces and figure out what to do to overcome these issues. By the end of this course you'll know how to track easy and difficult surfaces in mocha and export that tracking and shape data for use in your After Effects project. Software required: After Effects.
