CoreMelt has released its Lock & Load stabilizer for Final Cut Pro X. It requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later and Final Cut X 10.0.3 or higher.

Lock & Load has long been a tool for legacy Final Cut Pro users. Now the new generation of Final Cut Pro X users can add the power of a stabilization tool to their editing repertoire. As well as providing fast smoothing of all kinds of camera motion, Lock & Load also provides advanced Rolling Shutter reduction to help minimize skew and wobble artifacts from CMOS sensors used in popular DSLR cameras.

“The Rolling Shutter reduction built into Final Cut Pro X is one size fits all, so there is only an overall strength control,” says Roger Bolton, CoreMelt founder, director and visual effects veteran “For CoreMelt Lock & Load, we individually tested the most popular types of DSLR cameras and optimized our results for the specific CMOS sensors of each camera.”  

Lock & Load X is available for a limited time for US$99 (the full price is normally $149 US) from CoreMelt ( and its authorized dealers. It’s also available on Final Cut Pro 7, Adobe After Effects & Premiere Pro (Mac only).
