I’m looking to use mocha pro to solve some wire removal tasks. I’m using open color ACES workflow inside after effects - so converting Arri LogC footage to ACEScg linear for compositing.
When attempting to use the remove module in mocha pro for AE, it seemed to be doing a good job, but when viewing it in after effects, it seems that the bright values are being clamped at 1 which is no good. Interestingly it only clamps the areas that have been removed, the rest of the frame comes back at the correct values. I need to be doing this paint work before grading, so converting to output colour space (rec709) isn’t an option. I could potentially do the paint work on the log footage, before converting to ACEScg linear, but then I get the washed out Log look in the mocha viewer which is a nightmare to identify the areas which need cleanup.
I’ve noticed there is a colorspace panel in ‘Clip’, but all options are greyed out.
I’m using a trial at the moment to see if mocha could do the job, and would be interested in purchasing if it can do what I need!
