Cannot paste tracking data into AECS4!

Hi there.
For some reason, I try to copy the tracking data to the clipboard and nothing happens. Or, more to the point, when I go into AE and try to paste, nothing happens. ‘Paste’ in the ‘Edit’ dropdown is greyed out. So it seems the tracking info is not going to the clipboard.
I also tried copying and pasting from the txt file. No good. Not sure if AE and Mocha are having trouble communicating or something.
Please help.
Thanks.

I did all that before and nothing changed…but now, it worked! Mocha must have known that you were on the case now and it had to shape up.

Try restarting your computer. Also, make sure you are exporting the proper tracking data in the tracking tab, and make sure your layer is selected and visible.
Please let me know if this does not resolve your issue.

If you have any copy and paste issues, you can also use my After Effects script MochaImport (http://www.mamoworld.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=52%3Amochaimport&catid=34%3Ascripts&Itemid=72&lang=en). Since it loads the tracking data from a file, you don’t need the clip board and hence don’t need any annoying restarts.
