mocha Pro 4 with S3D support
Imagineer Systems announced the release of its flagship visual effects solution, mocha Pro 4.0. Version 4 offers groundbreaking native Stereo 3D (S3D) workflow capabilities and advanced support for Python scripting. The new stereoscopic workflow lets users quickly analyze differences between right and left camera streams and apply the solved disparity in 2D tracking, 3D camera solving, object remove module and image stabilization. This results in a lot less manual keyframing for both solving tracks and creating articulate roto masks. The benefits of mocha Pro 4 also carry over to editors and artists using Adobe's Creative Cloud tools, Premiere Pro and After Effects. Premiere editors can now paste mocha roto masks directly to their timeline for advanced isolation, blurring and color correction tasks while the new customizable keyboard shortcut interface comes with preset profiles to match After Effects. Facilities can now deeply integrate mocha Pro 4 into their unique VFX production workflows thanks to newly added support for Python scripting. Python also allows technical directors to customize and automate mocha Pro tasks, such as sending intensive object removal renders to a background render farm. mocha Pro 4 is now available on Mac OS X, Windows and Linux with nodelocked or cross platform, floating licensing options. Upgrades are available starting at $495 US; new users can purchase mocha for $1,495 US. The software supports Adobe After Effects and Premiere Pro, Apple Final Cut Pro and Motion, Avid DS, Assimilate SCRATCH, Autodesk Flame, Smoke & Maya, Boris FX, eyeon Fusion, HitFilm, Quantel, Maxon CINEMA 4D, Red Giant Warp and The Foundry's Nuke.
