Many customers are sharing their excitement over the significant workflow improvements theyâ€™ve seen since theyâ€™ve added Imagineer Systems to their VFX tool box.Â Jon Fitzsimmons of Crimson Wolf Productions had this to say about Imagineerâ€™s newest addition to its product portfolio, mocha-AE:
"mocha AE has made my life much much easier so far on a recent project. There were about 120 shots of monitors, phones, etc. in this film that need something comped in. I've been doing it with Syntheyes up until now, which was great for adding Maya elements, but not so great for screen composites. mocha-AE has made one of my most difficult shots possible!â€ť
