TUTORIAL | Solving an untrackable 3D Camera with Mocha

Have you ever had untrackable footage in a 3D tracking software? Light changes, motion blur, no trackable features?
Imagineer Systems uploaded this tutorial on their Vimeo channel explaining how to use planar tracking in their Mocha software to solve a 3D Camera!


Here's a few more really good mocha tutorials:



Mocha is a planar tracking software. Most tracking software use point tracking, where they track a particular pixel (or set of pixels), where as planar tracking tracks a whole range of pixels. It becomes different because it can ignore objects that only partially cover the range chosen, and handles motion blur like it's not even there.
Planar tracking is powerful for tasks such as placing logos on billboards and tracking screens and displays, but can also be used for rotoscoping and other complex techniques (check out the Imagineer channel for more).
Mocha comes bundled with Adobe After Effects, but there is also a stand-alone version: Mocha Pro, which has a lot more features.
