The HyperZoom™ Technique Takes Flight with Mocha Pro & After Effects

Geoff Tompkinson has created HyperZoom™, a technique that combines real-time, time-lapse, and hyperlapse into one seamless, continuous shot. Find out how he uses Mocha Pro and AE to help create these amazing virtual timelapse flights.

Watch Hyperzoom in action with Upper Austria “An Incredible Journey,” that Tompkinson made for the Austrian Board of Tourism.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

The addition of the Mocha Pro plug-in running inside Adobe brought a new workflow to Tompkinson. “I use Mocha to track and rotoscope things I need to mask,” comments Tompkinson. “Then I generate AE masks from the Mocha data so I can work with them in AE as usual. The ability to rapidly distort and accurately edit the mask on each new frame using Mocha made this laborious task more fun and much quicker than trying to do it with the standard AE masking toolset.”

Read the full article here.

Mocha Pro

Built upon a renowned Planar Tracking image engine, mocha follows “pixel patterns” through the most difficult conditions including objects that go off-screen, objects that are partially obscured, even out of focus footage.This technology drives our products and is licensed to technology partners.

After Effects Photoshop Plug-ins Tutorial

Imagineer mocha Pro 5 Tutorial and Review

Michele from Toolfarm uses mocha Pro to remove people and a sign from handheld video, then creates a mood with Boris Continuum Complete plug-ins, as well as adds a ghost! She talks about her experience using the plug-ins as well.

Michele says, “Imagineer mocha Pro 5 is a tool that every visual effects person must have! In this video above, I walk users through how to remove an object (actually 2 – one moving and one not moving on a handheld shot). The areas that were removed were replaced with a cleanplate generated with mocha Pro and edited in Photoshop. Notice how well the perspective is kept and how perfectly the edges blend. Doing this by hand would have taken days. mocha Pro is fast and efficient. I should note here that I used the mocha Pro plug-in which works in After Effects and I show how easy it is to incorporate that into your workflow. I use the tracking data that I generated removing the sign to place a giant ghost in the shot. Sure, it’s goofy, but it shows how powerful and fast mocha Pro is! I finish the shot with some color grading and effects created with Boris Continuum Complete.

mocha Pro is a lot of fun to use because it opens up opportunities that would either take an enormous amount of time and patience or couldn’t even be done without the software.”
