Imagineer & Curious Turtle Announce mocha Training Course
GUILDFORD, UK -- Imagineer Systems announced the launch of Curious Turtle’s newest and most comprehensive training course entitled “Fundamentals of mocha,” a free streaming video series created to introduce new users to mocha's tool set, interface and workflow. Available immediately, and free to existing customers, “Fundamentals of mocha” offers over 4 hours of video tutorials, broken into 14 exercises covering planar tracking, rotoscoping, and the ins and outs of successfully integrating planar tracking concepts into artists’ workflow.
Renowned trainer, Ben Brownlee of Curious Turtle returns with this latest training series, and had this to say about working with mocha:
"mocha's Planar Tracker can produce such good results that first-time users can often get the results they want without even trying too hard. But when they encounter a tricky piece of footage or an unexpected problem things tend to grind to a halt. I've trained a lot of people in mocha, and wherever they are in the world, they tend to make the same mistakes when starting out. So I've designed a course that gets you over that bump at the beginning.”
“In just over four hours, you'll have mastered the basics of mocha Pro and mocha AE. You will better understand the core Planar Tracker that underpins so much of the software. And already be equipped with different strategies for tackling different types of footage. This course is not about creating a single glitzy effect, it's about how you integrate mocha confidently into your daily post-production workflow."
"We are excited to share this new high quality training series and make so much content available for free to the users,” added Ross Shain, chief marketing officer with Imagineer Systems. “Through our ongoing bundle relationship with Adobe After Effects and the inclusion of mocha AE with CS6, there are literally thousands of new mocha users always clamoring for new and better training materials. Partnering with Ben Brownlee from Curious Turtle is a no-brainer. Ben is one of the premier online trainers in the world and understands the needs of both effects artists and editors. Ben has tailored these videos so any new user coming from After Effects, Final Cut or even Nuke and Autodesk Flame can quickly get up to speed on the power of mocha's planar tracking and rotoscoping tools."
This series is available now for online streaming at no cost to mocha customers and can be viewed here: http://www.imagineersystems.com/mocha_Fundamentals
