After Effects Tracking Import


#1

Not working for me. I copy but there is no paste available in AE, paste in Edit is inactive. I even tried dragging the file to the layer. Nada.
Also, the link to the tutorial doesn’t work.

This thread is from 2007 which is why it probably no longer is valid.
Generally is paste is not working you need to restart AE. The clipboard can be weird.
Alternatively use Mathias M?hl’s mocha import script:

It looks like for Mocha (on a Mac at least) the copy to clipboard function does not work. Once I saved the tracking data text file and copied from that, I could then paste the data to an AE layer (both v7 and CS3).

Copy to Clipboard then paste in Txt Editor, then Copy from Txt Editor to AE.

Though personally I save the Txt files to keep the tracking data in case something goes wrong in my AE project.

I would second that, because apparently in CS3 you cant paste all the data from the clipboard…???

Hello All,

Anyone out there successfully import Mocha tracking data into After Effects? I’m looking all over but can’t see any references to importing keyframe data (except for Maya Camera data and RLA/RPF camera data).

I’ve done a successful AE Text export from Mocha and can see the data but am sitting here unable to use it in AE.

Thanks,
Steven M. Blasini

…found out it’s a simple “copy to clipboard” then paste into the layer you want.

After successfully importing ‘translation’ tracking data from Mocha into AE by pasting from the clipboard, I found that the ANCHOR tracking export is unnecessary. It apparently negates the POSITION tracking data. So once you paste it, delete all the ANCHOR keyframes, reposition ANCHOR to your requirements, and the track is spot on.

Hope this helps others with Mocha and AE.
