Hey all, was hoping someone could help me with a quick problem. Using the mocha pro after effects plugin and the top layer is occluding my track even when it is not visible. Is this normal? I thought for sure that when you turned off visibility on the layer it would no longer process. Can anyone tell me how to not have a layer process when not visible?
That is correct: Non-visible layers are still active and contribute to the track. If you want to have it not contribute you have two options:
- Drag the layer below the track layer you want
- Deactivate the layer by right-clicking and choosing “deactivate on current frame” (this is keyframed, so be careful!)
If you’d prefer it NOT to work like this, let us know.
Awesome thanks for the info! Personally, it would make more sense to me to not include nonvisible layers in the track, but I am also happy to work around it!
@martinb Can we maybe add an additional radio button to disable layers that we do not want to be inclusive if they are not visible?
Can we have a preference for this added so we can toggle this off? I would also prefer layers that are non-visible to also be fully inactive during tracking.
We’ve been thinking about changing this for a while, as it does seem to trip people up.
At the moment we are looking at either:
a) Just defaulting to visible layers not being active.
b) Providing an option in the relevant modules to ignore non-visible layers.
