Kool Tools: TrackX Powered by mocha for Final Cut Pro X
The latest Apple Final Cut Pro X (FCP X) plug-in to come out of the strategic partnership between Imagineer Systems and CoreMelt, TrackX powered by mocha leverages the Academy Award-winning Planar Tracking technology to track camera motion, objects and people for seamless visual effects and screen composites.
It lets FCP X editors track and replace objects within a video, such as an image on a cell phone, TV screen or sign, as well as add graphics and text, including lower-thirds, to follow objects in motion. TrackX’s customizable parameters provide FCP X editors with controls to fine-tune translation, scale, rotation and perspective motion of text and video, eliminating the need to do manual keyframing. Designed to manage the most difficult tracking challenges, mocha technology stays locked on through shaky, grainy and motion-blurred video.
CoreMelt has taken Imagineer’s Planar Tracking engine and added a simple-to-use plug-in interface, giving Final Cut Pro X editors an easy-to-use set of tools to manage complex tracking projects with exacting precision. There's no need to leave the timeline or learn a complicated VFX program. TrackX powered by mocha is ideal for creating realistic screen inserts, set extensions and sky replacements,

° Simple Tracker, which offers instant tracking for quick floating lower thirds or graphics following a person or object;
° Track Layer, which offers advanced tracking with perspective shifts, surface mapping and masking capabilities;
