Just dipping my toes in it now.. 

The new Mocha AE effect plugin is nice so far.. Although a bit different to work with than previously. Be careful not to bring forward your AE windows when you have Mocha windows open.. they're hard to get from the background it seems.. and AE will be completely unresponsive, thinking you're working in Mocha, even if AE is the one in the foreground.

Basically you launch mocha, do your track and just hit save... then in AE.. you twirl down the "matte" or "Tracking Data" in the effects controls.. for tracking data.. you click "Create Track Data" and it'll open a little window to choose which layer from Mocha to export tracking data from.. the issue here is.. you can click the name.. and it looks highlighted and selected.. and you hit ok.. and it just seems like it doesn't work.  nothing happens at all.. 

What you have to do is choose the tiny box to the left of the layer name there.. and a little gear will pop in there, showing it's selected.. and then everything else will work properly.. 

Should probably have that as a standard check box, or just allow the selection of the name to also "select" the layer to get tracking data from.. 

anyway.. took me a good 20 minutes to figure out that was what was going on.. hope this helps someone else out later on.

We live in a world where you can install multiple versions of AE simultaneously. Check it out, keep your current version installed, and see whether it works for you!

Has anyone taken the leap? Is it stable / any gotchas?
