Mocha Pro Corner Pin Data To JSON Converter

corner-pin-transform-data-wordpress

Update July 2014 – I have updated the converter so that it now accepts After Effects Transform Data (Anchor, Position, Scale, Rotation) as well as After Effect Corner Pin data (both generated from Mocha). Simply paste in either type of data and it will auto-magically detect whether it’s Transform or Corner Pin data. Lovely.

********************************************************

One the (many) processes I’ve been using to create HTML5 3D motion tracking work is copying the Mocha Pro tracking data to Adobe After Effects, converting those properties to layer markers and then outputting an FLV containing the tracking data (which resolves to Flash video cue points). The resulting FLV is then fed through a Flash AIR program I wrote to harvest the cuepoints and convert them to JSON.

However the latest releases of Adobe After Effects CC 2014 (along with Media Encoder CC 2014 and others) have now removed the ability to export to FLV, favouring MP4 – a natural decommission/evolution and one with which I wholeheartedly agree.

Of course this has left me with a gaping hole in my process which I have now filled with a web-based converter. To be honest I was going to get around to it sooner or later but this has given me the nudge I needed.

So now you can paste corner pin data straight from Mocha Pro into the converter and a load of lovely formatted JSON comes whizzing out the other side. Hooray!

  1. What can I say…that is just pretty damn awesome of you to share this tool with everyone. It really is appreciated by many of us who learn a lot from people like you and I for one would gladly donate something to you if you wanted to put some kind of donate link on that tool. I will also try and promote your products that you do have for purchase any chance I get. Sometime in the near future I plan on getting in contact with you about some of that 1-4 person training you had recently talked about. It would primarily be Adobe Edge + Greensock, if that is possible. Thanks again!

    1. I’m glad you find it useful and FYI I have updated the converter so that it now accepts After Effects Transform Data (Anchor, Position, Scale, Rotation) as well as After Effect Corner Pin data (both generated from Mocha AE).
