Solve with Mocha option missing

Hello.  I just purchased HFP 2017 and am going through the mocha tutorials.  I am to believe that in order to use Mocha I should click the 'new' button in the media tab.  This should give the option for 'solve with mocha' but it is not there.  I can, after setting up a composite shot, apply mocha as an effect but when I launch the UI my video file is not available to be edited.  What am I missing?

    Existing Mocha tutorials cover Hitfilms 2, 3 and 4 where Mocha was an external program. 

    With Hitfilm Pro 2017, mocha has become the plug-in version. 

    Are you applying Mocha as an effect directly to the clip you want to roto or camera solve? 

  • I am.  I am trying to do the Mocha tutorials from the HitFilm website.  I think I have it mostly under control now except when I import the solved composite shot back into hitfilm it doesn't include the actual footage that was solved, only the points.

    open the saved camera solve hitfilm-comp as "import hitfilm-comp". the blue plane is the placeholder that you must change with the clip with the mocha-effect.

    but thats not really customer-friendly like older versions.

  • I am having trouble finding Mocha in the effects panel. Is it available in the demo version of Pro 2017?

    Mocha and Boris are not available in the demo. Imagineer and Boris have not chosen to enable their units in the demo. 

  • Ah, ok, thank you.
