Planer tracking in Mocha AE

I’ve been tracking things more and more lately.  It seems like many of my clients like the idea of compositing items or visually sweetening things up in Post.  And while there is no quick easy substitute from proper planning at the beginning, tracking is something that i find to be essential.

There are a lot of different tools out there for tracking such as the trackers built into after effects as well as the 3d camera tracker in after effects, but being able to set a plane where there may not be enough information can be a bit challenging and frustrating using these tools.

Luckily for us, there is a version of mocha included with After Effects that we can make use of to track Planes quickly and easily without a lot of trouble.

Here is a quick overview of how to use it and getting up and running with it.
