The More Elegant Approach - This follow-on AE tutorial to the previous one, which gave a more 'workmanlike' approach to controlling effects and parameters with audio, shows how to keep things well organised, with all your controllers on a single layer so they are easier to find in your project. The same effects are achieved but this approach is slightly more complex with the aim of keeping your project better organised.

Very well done. This may be a 10 on the complexity scale, but the clear instructions are very easy to follow and apply.

The Workmanlike Approach - This is the first of 2 After Effects tutorials which do the same thing but with slightly different methods. This version is the both slightly simpler and quicker method, and is ideal if you are only controlling a couple of items with your audio. Version 2 shows how to keep all the controllers on a single layer and is better suited for more complex projects with many layers, which need good organisation. You will probably find it useful to watch this tutorial first if you are not experienced in using audio and expressions.

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

mocha AE Planar Tracker for Absolute Beginners

Want to learn how to create advanced visual effects? Learn how to use mocha AE to track your shot and add advanced visual effects to live action footage inside Adobe After Effects. mocha can help you track shots that would be hard to track using traditional 2D point or feature trackers because it is a PLANAR TRACKER. A planar tracker uses planes and textures to track as opposed to points or groups of pixels. This allows the tracker to stay on track even if your shot contains motion blur or a very shallow depth of field. mocha AE comes included with Adobe After Effects and is available since CS3 and there is no reason for you not to use this awesome tool to make it easier for you to track your shot, replace screens or rotoscope!
