I am using Mocha Pro 2018 v5.6.0.
I am attempting to stabilize a 7000 frame steadicam shot with continuous forward motion. It’s an exterior shot moving through fields, between trees / buildings / other structures, and with characters walking through frame.
Since the environment is ever changing in the shot, I was wondering if there’s a way within Mocha to stabilize using multiple planes for different portions of the shot. Right now I’m tracking one object at a time through the shot.
For example, the ground plane is occluded for portions of the shot, so I’m tracking a tree for 200 frames, then when the tree moves out of shot there’s a wall I can track for 400 frames, then the side of another structure, then back to the ground etc. I’m exporting each of these tracks individually into Nuke (using cornerpin info), then blending between them in Nuke using expressions.
Any other advise on a way to tackle this shot would be greatly appreciated. It’s a tricky one for sure!
Thank you very much.
