Advanced Object Removal with mocha Pro Plug-in for Media Composer

By in Tutorial Thursday, Video Editing

One of the most difficult tasks in the post-production process is fixing footage and “invisible effects”. Whether it is a feature film, commercial or episodic TV – removing objects when the camera is not locked down can be challenging for even the most experienced visual effects artist.

Imagineer’s mocha Pro software is the secret weapon for difficult fixes and object removal. mocha Pro takes the multi-step process of motion tracking, cloning, paint and match moving to a new level by automating tasks into a simplified process. The great news for Avid Media Composer editors, is that mocha Pro is available as an integrated AVX plug-in, giving editors an efficient workflow without leaving their Avid project.

In this useful video tutorial, colorist and finishing artist Dan Harvey shows Avid editors how to remove an actress from a shot using mocha’s planar tracking and powerful Remove Module.
