CoreMelt ModelX

Next-Gen 3D Models with PBR Materials and Lighting for Final Cut Pro

CoreMelt ModelX is a toolkit for manipulating 3D models directly on the timeline in FCP X. Load any of the included USDZ models, add a quick animation and choose from our pre-built camera and lighting presets. Models are sized to match real world dimensions and use high quality PBR materials. PBR (Physically Based Rendering) is the same material technologies used in high end game engines such as Unreal Engine 5, Frostbite and Unity HDRP. It allows for extremely realistic results, especially when combined with our Image Based Lighting – using High Dynamic Range Imagery. All of which can be infinitely tweaked and customized using 3rd party assets, including many available entirely for free!

  • Load USDZ, USDC,obj, and STL files
  • Change environment map to change lighting and reflections with included environment map presets
  • Lighting presets with 3 point lighting and other common light setups
  • Camera presets including lens type, depth of field and fog
  • Library of material presets that can be applied with a single click
  • Re-texture 3D models in seconds using multiple methods
  • Instantly add a logo or text to an existing 3D model
  • Simple easy to understand interface

Some Macbook and Mac mini models are not supported due to the more limited feature-set of their built-in graphics accelerators.
