Use a comprehensive set of tools to constrain, balance and animate the texture fragmentation over your content. Mosaic smart texturing algorithm organizes and warps the details to help you in the production of stunning composites.

ASCII Effects

Recursive Details

Setup complex animated graphics from a small group of elements assembled on a grid. Apply Mosaic to gradient ramps, fractal noise, or any luminance map you imagine, then play with masks and adaptive tiling to localize the tesselation and quicly produce massive motion graphics.

Fully Integrated into After Effects

Fly into the motifs or create dynamic textures for your 3D models. Mosaic natively supports the After Effects Camera. This allows for seamless integration with other industry standard plugins also compatible with the 3D environment offered by AE.

Wireframe Overlay

Large Collection of Expandable Effects

Mosaic comes with a collection of over a hundred customisable presets and FCPX Templates based on procedural and original texture atlases. This library was created as a starting point and to inspire the creation of your own motifs made of simple grid of images, graphic elements, or video loops. View sample presets on the Product Page.

inSync FrameFormer for FCPX – Assists With Mixed Frame Rates

inSync FrameFormer for FCPX – Assists With Mixed Frame Rates

FrameFormer for Final Cut Pro X (FCP X) is a motion compensated standards conversion plug-in for FCP X and Motion. High quality motion compensated conversion guaranteed; preview your conversion results as you work.

inSync FrameFormer for FCPX: Reg. $629.00 Toolfarm Price: $597.55

Download a Free Trial

Why do I need motion compensated standards conversion? Can’t I just re-time the source content on the project timeline?

The simplest methods for frame rate conversion are generally unacceptable due to their poor motion performance. Re-timing a sequence of images to play back at a different frame rate will affect the speed of motion of the objects in the image, and will distort the audio associated with the video. In practice, such “off-speeding” is usually only applied to very small frame rate changes such as 23.976Hz to 25Hz, in situations where audio pitch can be more easily corrected with simple processing, and where the client is prepared to accept a 4% change in program length.

Conversion of 59.94Hz to 50Hz represents a 16% change, so off-speeding cannot be used as it would create grossly unnatural motion, highly significant audio pitch alterations, and a dramatic change in program length. For such conversions, very simple frame rate converters simply copy frames from input to output where the input and output presentation positions would be closely related in time, and skip (or duplicate) frames to maintain the required overall frame rate.

Frame copying with drop/repeat has many obvious drawbacks including unnatural and discontinuous motion, audio artifacts (where audio packets are lost or repeated at the frame skip/repeat), and corruption of metadata (e.g. closed caption packets would be lost or repeated). Therefore it is not recommended in professional video applications.

Coremelt Lock and Load just got better

Coremelt Lock and Load just got better

Lock & Load, the fastest and most powerful stabilizer for FCP X, just got even better.

Coremelt has added support to Lock & Load for working directly on multicam clips, batch tracking of multiple clips with one click, and optimised support for MXF and the latest R3D cameras.

If you already own Lock and Load, this is a free update for you.

What’s new?

Full Support for Multicam Clips

Unlike the built in stabilizer, Lock & Load X can be used natively on angles of multi-cam clips. Apply Lock & Load just to a section of an angle that needs stabilizing, or apply Lock & Load within the Angle Editor if you wish to apply it to a complete length of an angle. Both methods are supported.

Batch Tracking

If you have many clips you need to stabilize at once, now you can paste effects or paste attributes to analyze many clips in one go. A huge time saver on many projects. To use batch processing, place lock and load onto onto clip, then select the others you wish to analyse and select either paste effects or paste attributes, you will then see a window asking you if you want to batch process the clips. Once accepting this, the batch tracking window will open and show you the list of clips to be analyzed.

Optimized support for the latest RED Cameras

including the RED Weapon 8K, 4K, SCARLET-W, EPIC-W and RED Raven 4.5K.

Optimized support for MXF files (On Sierra only).

MXF is an increasingly important standard, shot by many cameras and also often a delivery format in European countries. Lock & Load now has optimized support for MXF files, making processing of them faster and easier.
