We recently added several movies to our After Effects CC Updates course on lynda.com, covering the new user interface design, CINEWARE v2 and CINEMA 4D Lite R16, mocha AE CC 2014, Dynamic Link color management changes, and the embedded Adobe Color Themes panel (formerly known as Adobe Kuler). We selected the movie on mocha to be the freebie for this round, as not only does it cover the user interface and feature updates for this new version, it also gives a very quick tutorial of performing a simple track or stabilization inside mocha AE:
(we’ve had some problems with embedded videos playing Safari; other browsers such as Firefox seem to work fine)
We’ve shared tips on using mocha AE here on ProVideoCoalition.com in the past, including:
- This article outlining the typical screen replacement workflow using mocha AE, including a video that demonstrates how to set up “exclusion zones” in mocha to improve tracking accuracy when something gets in the way of the object being tracked
- A set of “Hidden Gems” tricks and tips on using mocha AE, borrowed from our book Creating Motion Graphics with After Effects
- Two older movies that give a quick-start on using mocha AE (note that the user interface has been updated since these movies were released, but the underlying concepts are the same)
