Importing splines into Mocha

Hi,

Just wondering, is there a way to import splines created in AE or Illustrator back into Mocha Pro for tracking?

I’m working on a motion graphics short where I need to track a complex spline shape on a model’s back because it will be used for compositing later on. The problem is I’m not the one creating the spline but I will be doing the tracking and compositing, so I’d like to be able to get the spline shape from the artist as is an import it into mocha rather than having to recreate it based on a reference picture.

 

Regards,

Ihab

Hi Ihab,

Yes, there is a way to do this, via the Mocha Import+ plugin for After Effects by Mamoworld.com:

As far as we are aware this is the only way to transfer masks from AE to mocha at present, but the tool is well worth it for the complete feature set.
