Coremelt Slice X for Final Cut Pro X

Coremelt Slice X for Final Cut Pro X

November 15, 2012

The default mask in Final Cut Pro X, only has 4 points. The one from Ripple Training is an 8-point Garbage Matte. There are others with 10-points, 20-points, or 30-points, but what if you needed say 11 or 13 points, or maybe 5 points. You would be stuck using one that had more points than you needed or trying to make due with a matte that had too few points. “
