  • Does Motion Tracking Come w/ New PI?

    Posted by Byron Kawane on May 7, 2019 at 6:12 pm

    Great to see PI is alive and well! I’m still happily using 3.09 and would like to upgrade to the new Version.

    I watched the Webinar Replay: The ABC’s of Particle Illusion and noticed that there was motion tracking in the new version. Does motion tracking come w/ the new PI or is Mocha required purchase?

    Also is the new PI standalone? Does it integrate w/ Vegas 12 and higher?

    Thanks! -bK

    Motion tracking with Mocha is integrated into BCC Particle Illusion – emitters and the scene camera can be tracked independently. No need to purchase Mocha as a separate product to track in Particle Illusion. 🙂

    If you use the new PI as a plug-in, you’ll get:
    – Mocha motion tracking
    – Mocha masking
    – Separate “Glow” controls to add to the particles
    – Several different transfer modes (Screen, Multiply, etc.)
    – Beat Reactor, a way to make particle parameters react to music and other audio tracks
    And maybe some more things that I’ve forgotten about.

    Using PI standalone — when that is finished — you won’t have access to any of that.

    Vegas is one of the hosts that should support PI as a plug-in. If you’re not yet in the Continuum beta test — of which the new PI is a part — email me directly and I’ll get you set up.
