I am trying to use Powermesh to track the forehead of a subject so I can apply the first frame of the video throughout all video frames (basically, I saved the first frame as photoshop file, brought it back in AE, masked the part I needed and used that - “Face Comp” in the image below).
I basically did everything what was mentioned in this video about Powermesh Mocha Pro Tutorial - Mocha Pro PowerMesh Tracking | Mocha Pro Warping Workflow | Mocha Pro 2021 - YouTube (which I did in another video of mine without any problems).
But in this video it doesn’t seem to work…the image I am trying to apply doesn’t take the Mocha Powermesh track.
The only difference between what I have done in the past and worked ok and this one is that I am using two tracks in Mocha: one normal track to track that red light which I want to exclude from Powermesh track…and then the Powermesh track itself. See the image below.
I am at a loss why applying the Powermesh track in AE doesn’t work…am I doing something wrong with these two tracks? Or what?
I tried with Insert Layer according to this Boris FX | Mocha Pro 2022: Improved Insert Module with PowerMesh Tracking and I see it’s working inside Mocha…but after I save it and set the settings in AE on Mocha plugin (check Render, and choose Module Insert:Composite) it doesn’t work anymore. Just like above…
