Great video tutorials giving both overview and details of this track/matte/rotoscoping (roto) product (pronounced “Mow-Kah”), at  Example:

    • Learn mocha: Chapter 2. mocha workflow.  Steve Wright covers the basic mocha track and roto workflow for new users.
    • <<<
    • Imagineer’s Planar Tracker doesn’t employ point trackers, but tracks an object’s translation, rotation and scaling data based on the movement of the user defined plane.
    • When you work with the mocha tools, you will need to look for planes in the clip. More specifically, you will need to look for planes that coincide with movements you want to track.
    • The Planar Tracker respects layer priority similar to a camera: Objects in the distance should be lowest in the layer stacking order. Objects closest to the camera should be stacked higher in layers.
    • While the most common planes are flat surfaces, objects in distance or with little parallax form patterns that can be considered successful planes to track as well.  Our customers have been know to get rock solid tracking from unthinkable objects such as faces and spheres.

    • Great demo of what it can and can’t do, when it’s “overkill” and workarounds (usually in-plane markers or casual objects) for problem-shots.
      • Is “overkill” when subject is fixed and relative motion is only due to camera pan/tilt.
