Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Tracking plus defining a surface, part of After Effects and mocha AE: Screen Replacement.
…Tracking is a different operation in Mocha from…defining where your new layer is going to go.…You'll notice that so far I've only defined the outside of…the bezel for this monitor, but I've not defined the corners.…Where the new screen has to go.…I'm going to do these as separate procedures just…to show you how separated they are inside Mocha.…I'm going to set my time indicator, back to the…start of my timeline, and then merely go to the,…Trackforge button, and click it.…
Mocha now loads the frames my source in…the memory and performs the track, including, the…exclusion for the second layer, above my tracking…layer, that has the process icon turned off.…If you've already previewed this clip inside Mocha, it'll be…that much faster, because it will already be loaded into RAM.…But this is a short clip, and it's already done.…I'm going to turn off the visibility icon for my exclusion…layer, just so I can see my tracking surface to make…it easier to see just how well it follows that screen.…I'll press the space bar.…
