Track text and layers directly within Final Cut Pro X

TrackX Powered by Mocha lets you track text or graphics to follow background motion directly in FCP X. Insert floating lower thirds tracked to people, replace screens or signs, all with one step and no need to use another compositing package.


Highlights

Now you can easily track text or graphics to background movement for innovative title effects, or track and insert a layer for screen replacements, to replace a sign, or extend a set.   CoreMelt TrackX uses the same powerful mocha tracking engine as SliceX, the same one used by the Mocha Pro package costing over a thousand dollars.  The powerful planar tracking engine can track many common objects for quick results without having to go into another compositing program.

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.

New features:

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

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.

Track Smoothing

This parameter lets you smooth track data by averaging the track over time. Higher values smooth the track over a longer time period.

Customer Reviews

UPDATED REVIEW: After using this for a couple of days I've realized this is very buggy and unsatisfying. For example - often FCPX crashes when using this and you can't even use it on compound clips. Unfortunately, I can't delete my previous review, but this is the official one.

****
Note from Toolfarm: CoreMelt responded to this review post:

Have emailed him in detail, however, we did explain to him the limitation on compound clips and how to get around this before. Also, he never contacted us about crashing, we always treat that as a top priority and work to find fixes as quickly as possible.

Compound clip explanation:

The reason TrackX / SliceX does not work on compound clips is that a compound clip can contain many other clips and so we don’t know which clip to track. The user has to apply TrackX /SliceX to a specific clip inside the compound clip, this is stated in our documentation. This is not a difficult workflow and the vast majority of customers are happy with this.
