    this is a great down & dirty way to get the effect using 2D. do you have a tutorial showing how to achieve the camera tracking and insertion of a 3D object? thanks

  7. Deep Dark Dreams says:

    I still remember your early tutorials when you had the pointy hair and AE 2014, before you got the monster computer and made the indiana jones effect that took 24H to render even on the xtreem processor. do you still use it? 🙂 Used to watch your tutorials all day, dreaming of doing cool things.
    anyway I'm back 🙂
    I have a question- do you know the difference between the mocha that comes with AE and pro? Are they only different in advanced features or in basic tracking too?
    Thanks for all your effort 🙂

  18. Ronin Soju says:

    Hello, I know this might be a stupid question and it has nothing to do with this video but I have an urgent problem on after effects. I’m trying to make an effect where a person’s body starts to slowly disintegrate limb by limb using a fractal noise and threshold effect, but every time I Luma track mat my video to the solid with the effects, the rest of the body disappears around that one limb. I want it so I can make multiple masks around each limb and then make it so each body part disappears in different times. Please help ASAP 🙏

  21. Celeo Portillo says:

    Very nice tutorial! Thank you for taking the time to do these. 😀

  22. Jeff Myers says:

    Thanks for another great tutorial. How much of this could be done in the standard Mocha, I don't know. But very few people own or can afford Mocha Pro.

  23. Pretty Vegas says:

    Hi Tobias, I love the work you do, and the entertainment value also, half the time I watch for that and not the tutorial. The explanations are always great, and I thought I would ask if you had a solution to a problem I have.

    In the latest video I have done for the band, we have a locked off shot with a screen behind that is displaying static images and the odd video, and only after did I think it would be better to be able to do a screen replacement and have the band logo up there. The issue is it is a single take, and the singer and other guitarist move in front of it, so without spending hours roto’ing the whole thing, have you got any tips or tricks that would work?

    The link to the video is below, and if you think is something you could do with Mocha want to try and tackle as a tutorial, then I would happily send you the original hi-res footage.

    Fancy the challenge??

  30. That Black Oni says:

    does hitfilms has something like this.

  31. Hitfilm University says:

    As always, excellent work.

    Question/comment: I've seen other tutorials involving face tracking with mocha, and, usually (especially if it's a Mary Poplin tut) the side-of-face spline is drawn where it drops from the side of the eye socket and curves under the cheekbone before following the side plane of the face. In this tutorial you put your spline around Celina's entire cheekbone – or, directly over part of her face that wrapped from side-to-front. It struck me as a slightly unusual place to have a spline (again, based off other tutorials where the point of the cheekbone isn't tracked).

    So. Deliberate choice? Maybe, since you were warping you wanted to try and get some front – face data, or am I just overthinking things, and you just grabbed what looked like a good spline at the time?

  32. David Klaus Yamba says:

    Yes, doing the other tutorials would be great. Am hoping you do….

  33. David Klaus Yamba says:

    No one explain in details like you Tobias. This is my best channel on YouTube for tutorials because you are a great teacher. All tutorials are so mastered and more fun to Watch over and over again. I do Check here always…Thanks for the great job.

  34. Vorpal Edge Productions says:

  35. GEM Studio says:

    Thanks for your video. How to change the size of the overlay? After I did everything with mocha, I can't change the size… And also have you a tutorial about how to work with mark points in mocha?

  36. Chris Wong says:
