CoreMelt SliceX Powered by mocha for FCPX is instant shape motion tracking directly on the timeline in Final Cut Pro X. Just draw a shape on your video footage and press track, we use the power of mocha’s Academy Award-winning planar tracking engine to follow the motion in your footage. Use the tracked mask to color correct, blur, pixelate, sharpen, etc. The precise parts of the image you wish, with total control.
SliceX lets you create instant Shape Masks to cut out layers or isolate effects directly in Final Cut Pro X without having to go into Motion or create the masks with an external program. SliceX includes ten effects motion templates for common tasks and you can also use the Shape Masks with built-in effects, the built-in color corrector, or with third-party plugins.
In addition, SliceX takes the pain out of following complex motions. For example, just draw a shape and hit the track. After tracking the shape mask you can then do final adjustments with manual keyframes as needed. FCP X keyframing can be painful and tedious. With SliceX powered by mocha, we do all the hard work for you.

CoreMelt SliceX Powered by mocha for FCPX In-Depth Tutorial
Copy / Paste of Track and Shape Data
You can re-use track data and shape animations by copy pasting the track data into a different plugin.
The procedure for this is as follows:
Apply any SliceX or TrackX plugin.
Track and / or keyframe animate the shape as normal.
Click on the shape and hold down the “option” key to bring up the contextual menu for the plugin. Select “copy”. This will copy both the track data and the shape data.
Select another TrackX or SliceX plugin and choose “paste”. You can choose to paste just the Track Data, just the Shape animation or both the Track Data and Shape animation.
Please note that in TrackX, Surface mode shapes can only be pasted into Surface mode shapes. Other types of shapes can be pasted into non-surface mode (Track and Mask mode). In SliceX there is only one shape type and shapes can be pasted freely between plugins.
New Track Processing Options
These options are accessed from the Track options button next to the track button When inserting graphics and text using TrackX you can turn on Motion blur in the Tracking options. This will allow for a much more realistic look when inserting graphics / signs or screen replacements.
Track Depth adjusts the track data to simulate an object being either further from the camera than the object you tracked or closer to camera.
This parameter lets you smooth track data by averaging the track over time. Higher values smooth the track over a longer time period.

CoreMelt products may work on hardware that does not meet these requirements but performance may be compromised.
Please try a trial version first to check if they meet your requirements.
For best performance, we recommend you use a graphics card with 256MB of video memory (VRAM). 512MB VRAM is required for rendering HD projects in high precision color or for configurations with multiple high-resolution displays.
The following graphics cards are not supported:
Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 Ultra
Intel GMA 950
ATI Radeon 8500, 9200
Some Macbook and Mac mini models are not supported due to the more limited feature-set of their built-in graphics accelerators.
Not sure what graphics card is installed in your system?
You can determine what graphics card is installed on your system by selecting the “About this Mac” command under the Apple menu.
When the system summary appears, click the “More Info…” button, which will launch the System Profiler application.
