MochaBlend Blender 2.71 has switched to a new version of Python.  As a result, MochaBlend version 1.02 won’t work with Blender 2.71.  Please update to MochaBlend 1.03 to use both pre-2.71 versions of Blender, and also Blender 2.71. Resolved
MochaBlend A bug in Blender is causing a problem that makes it impossible to copy-paste mocha data into MochaBlend on a Mac.  For now, please save from mocha to a .txt file and open that file in MochaBlend. Working on it.
MochaBlend Camera Solve data:  Interlaced (field data) exported from mocha’s camera-solve exporter is not formatted properly. Imagineer Systems knows about this problem and recommends only working with progressive footage in the ‘Camera Solve’ module. Not yet started.
MochaBlend Shape export:  mocha  layers with more than one spline are divided into separate blender mask layers in Blender’s Movie Clip Editor.  This is due to the way Blender is blending compound-layer spline-masks incorrectly.  This has been reported to the Blender Foundation. Working on it.
MochaBlend exporter Compound paths:  Shape layer paths in AE with compound paths are only exporting the first path in the path group.  Workaround: don’t export compound paths from AE to MochaBlend.  With Illustrator,  Separate compound paths with Illustrator>Menu>Object>Compound Path>Release. Not yet started.
