Imagineer Systems announced it will launch the newest versions of mocha Pro and mocha AE at NAB 2012 in Las Vegas next month. Imagineer also announced that it has streamlined its product family and simplified its pricing strategy to make its intelligent Planar Tracking utilities more accessible to postproduction and VFX professionals.
Pricing for mocha AE v3 and mocha Pro v3 will be announced at NAB 2012, however, customers who purchase mocha AE v2.5 or mocha Pro v2.5 between now and April 16, will receive the new v3 upgrades at no cost.
The company reports that it has been working closely with customers to improve its family of intelligent Planar Tracking utilities. All mocha v3 products have been updated to add new features and improve core areas for customers – from large facilities that require advanced layer management tools for film effects and roto pipelines, to creative boutiques and artists who have been asking for true 3D camera support for years.
Version 3 includes new rotoscoping tools designed to create and edit roto masks more efficiently; new layer management tools that enable users to view, organize, color code and collapse mocha layers, and new project management tools for large-scale roto and VFX pipelines that need to merge and share projects between artists.
The Planar Tracker offers a new 3D camera solver for After Effects and FBX formats, and a new dopesheet gives users a new keyframe layout for adjusting timing and animation. It also features new keyboard shortcuts and interface improvements to enhance the entire workflow.
