Is there anyway to revert to the previous Mocha paradigm where I could save the working file as .mocha files?
The current paradigm which attaches the mocha project to the individual layer is disturbingly inefficient, confusing, and does not allow for any sensible way to back up working files. If I open another artists’ file and they have duplicates of the same footage there is no way to know where the masks on the luma mattes, etc. came from.
When doing complex patch, paint, track, and roto work, the same footage can be duplicated over 10 times and there is no way to know which layer retains the latest information.
