Want to learn how to create advanced visual effects? In this tutorial I show you how to use Mocha to track your shot and add advanced visual effects to live action footage.

Mocha is created by Imagineer Systems and I recommend that you check out their website for tons more tutorials on how to use this awesome tool: http://www.imagineersystems.com/
Mocha can help you track shots that would be hard to track using traditional 2D point or feature trackers because it is a PLANAR TRACKER. A planar tracker uses planes and textures to track as opposed to points or groups of pixels. This allows the tracker to stay on track even if your shot contains motion blur or a very shallow depth of field.
Mocha AE comes included with Adobe After Effects and is available since CS3 and there is no reason for you not to use this awesome tool to make it easier for you to track your shot, replace screens or rotoscope!
