Highlights

Our all in one solution put all the tools you need in a simple clear interface, including tracked masks, and individual grades overall, inside the mask and outside the mask. Also included are Camera LUTs for many popular cameras that can shoot with a log color curve, including Sony A7S2, Panasonic GH5, Blackmagic Design camera's and more. No additional installation or hunting for LUT files, it's drag and drop.

The included AutoWhite Balance can quickly help mitigate issues of poor color balance on set, using either whole scene analysis or by picking a reference white, a huge time saver. Many people want full Photoshop style Curves controls for Final Cut Pro X, now you have them, RGB, HSL and for advanced uses LAB Curves.

Chromatic is the only grading solution for Final Cut Pro X with fully integrated tracked masks.  With just one layer you can apply a grade overall, inside the mask and outside the mask, saving the otherwise tedious task of duplicating layers and complicating the timeline.

Chromatic can load LUT files as part of the workflow but we also include a license for our stand alone LUT loader LUTx and the feature film look collection.  We have other LUT collections for sale and you can also create your own LUT collection of standard CUBE files or import any LUT files you have purchased elsewhere.  Manage your LUT collections with real time previews of the clip on the timeline using our own custom LUT gallery.

At CoreMelt we have a solid back ground in real world post production, members of our team have worked on everything from block buster feature films, to music videos to high end television commercials.  We listen and we test in the real world.  Here's what our beta testers had to say:
