Instant shape tracking powered by mocha’s Academy Award winning planar tracking engine. Just draw a shape and press track.
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. SliceX powered by mocha takes the pain out of following complex motion, just draw a shape and hit track. You can then adjust with manual keyframes as needed.
Sharpen Shape Mask: Sharpen just the area inside a tracked shape mask with several different algorithms
Glow Shape Mask: Apply either Optical Glow or Core Glow to just the area inside a tracked shape mask.
Use with any effect

Advanced Compositing Release
CoreMelt SliceX and TrackX advanced compositing release now has the following features for to make it easier to perform multi layer compositing with multiple plugins.
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.
