Imagineer Systems and CoreMelt release TrackX
Imagineer Systems and CoreMelt have released TrackX, a new planar motion-tracking system for Final Cut Pro X.
Simple, in-editor tracking
TrackX comes as three separate plugins: a Simple Tracker for effects like floating lower thirds; Track Layer for more complex perspective shifts; and Track Text for text generation.
It won’t replace mocha itself, or any other dedicated tracking package – it’s intended for simple tasks like screen inserts and sky replacements – but it has the advantage of being integrated directly into FCP.
Plus, it’s cheap: $99 for a new licence, or $49 if you already own SliceX. You’ll need a system capable of running Final Cut Pro X, obviously.
