Export Stabilized Tracking Data not copying to clipboard

Trying to follow a lesson from Linked In about Stabilizing footage with Mocha Pro.

I’ve stabilized the footage in Mocha Pro Plug in 2021 ( version 8.0.3 ) and click on the “Export Stabilized Tracking Data” button, choosing the format: After Effects Corner Pin ( supports motion blur )*.txt And then copy to clip board.

The instructions say to paste that data on to the clip in AE ( version 18.4.0 ) to stabilize the footage in, but the paste function is grayed out. A simple command V doesn’t do anything as there appears nothing to paste.

I ran into a similar issue with a previous training module regarding copying shape data to the clipboard. I was able to work around the problem by pasting that data to a text editor and then recopying that pasted data and pasting the newly copied data into AE. It was an awkward work around, but allowed me to complete the process. This workaround I found here on the forums does not work with exporting the stabilization data. Note: I can see in the date from the text editor that there is data in the clipboard from Mocha, but AE doesn’t recognize it. How do I get AE to recognize this exported data?

Running on a Mac OS 10.15.7

Trying to learn this software but finding it to be very temperamental. Appreciate any advice that might help me get this working as described. thanks for the feedback!

This sounds like an old clipboard bug in AE may have resurfaced, I am going to download the newest AE update and see if I can repeat the error.

I am unable to repeat this error. But I am not on a mac. Let me see if I can confirm on Mac.

Can I get the text file from you that you are trying to use? We need to take a look at the data.

End of Keyframe Data

OK, that strips the formatting out that my devs need, sorry. So can you email the text file to maryp at borisfx.com?

OK! Your text editor, or some clipboard utility, seems to be the underlying cause of the problem. According to our devs, the text editor makes the file full of spaces. The tab characters have been removed and replaced by the number of spaces required to make the document have the same layout as if tabs are set to 16 spaces.

Your file has been edited, and your spacing has been manually replaced all the spaces with the required number of tab characters. See if this text file works? Do not open it in office or anything like that. On mac, you want to use TextEdit in plain text mode. On Windows, something like Notepad will do the same thing. Basically just make sure nothing is changing the format.

keyframe data text file - single tabs.txt (11.2 KB)

Here’s how to set TextEdit to be in plain text mode by default.

thanks for the feedback… the preferences were set as you show, with the exception of check spelling automatically was checked… as far as I know, I have no clipboard utility loaded, unless it was loaded by another piece of software without my knowledge. unchecking that one automatic spelling box seems to have corrected the problem… thanks again for your help
