Music to the ears of Adobe’s After Affects and Premiere Pro users (and potentially other ears too; read on!) as Imagineer Systems is releasing a sort of “halfway house” version of its Mocha product, which will sit between the version bundled with After Effects CC and the full-blown Mocha Pro.
The new software, dubbed Mocha Plus, adds features over the bundled edition, as well as support for Premiere Pro. It offers a 3D camera solver, lens correction tools for After Effects and support for copying and pasting Mocha roto masks directly to the Premiere Pro timeline.
Intriguing news for non-Adobe users as well since the new release apparently also offers a degree of data interchange with Apple’s Final Cut Pro and Motion, as well as HitFilm, and Boris FX plug-ins, thereby offering medium-strength Mocha power to editing software that links with them.
For example, Sony Vegas Pro has integration with HitFilm (which usually comes bunded, like AE, with a “light” version of Mocha) and so can make use of HitFilm’s integration with Mocha Plus – according to Imagineer that means it can use 3D camera data from the software. Likewise, Boris FX’s Continuum will import the new Mocha’s track data.
