The planar tracker Mocha Pro has received a major update. On the one hand the calculations for object removal now run on the GPU, which leads to much shorter render times than before. On the other hand there are new tools for rotoscoping and masking, which should also allow a faster work -- among others a magnetic spline tool with edge snapping and a freehand spline tool.
The program interface now also supports retina and high DPI monitor resolutions. For inexperienced users a new workspace has been introduced, Mocha Essentials, where the tracking procedure can be easily learned.
With the Mocha Pro 2019 version, BorisFX also merges the traditional Mocha tracker with the Mocha VR branch, which has been available up to now. This means that the software has a wide range of tracking functions for (stereoscopic) 360° images.
Mocha Pro 2019 is available both as a stand-alone program and as plug-ins for Adobe, Avid or via OFX also for other software solutions. In addition to a permanent license, annual subscriptions are also possible. A multi-host plugin license costs 995 dollars, an annual subscription costs 395 dollars. A single plugin license costs 695 dollars (or 295 dollars a year). For the standalone version including the multi-host plugins, 1495 dollars are due (or 595 dollars a year).
