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.

Also works with After Effects CS6-CS2015 and Premiere Pro CS6-CS2017 (Mac only)

Note: We have two late additions to the list. Red Giant Magic Bullet Suite v13 came out yesterday after this article was published, so I’ll add some info near the top since it’s a big one! The Luut Action pack was sadly missed, but it’s being added now!

Digital Anarchy Samurai Sharpen for Video

$99 Introductory Sale Through November 15th, 2016

What it does

From my own personal experience, most sharpening plug-ins on the market tend to over-sharpen and bring out the noise and compression artifacting. The good noise reduction tools are often expensive and/or slow. Samurai Sharpen was developed so that users can isolate noisy areas and sharpen just what needs to be sharpened. It’s made to be fast, precise, and easy to use.

Why it’s special

  • Isolate only the areas you want to sharpen with edge-aware algorithms and fine tuning controls
  • Built-in masking allows users to avoid sharpening noise.
  • One license supports Adobe After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Apple FCP X. Avid and OpenFX support is coming soon.

CrumplePop AutoWhiteBalance

What it does

As you probably know, there’s no “White Balance” button in Final Cut Pro X that balances with the ease of an eyedropper, so it’s necessary to use plug-ins or use color wheels.

Why it’s special

  • The powerful AutoBalance algorithm white-balances your shot automatically fast even if there is nothing white visible in the frame.
  • It’s fast and easy. Just drag and drop! There are

White Balance Roundup for FCPX

White should look white, not peach, pink, or baby blue. White balancing footage will help your video look natural by looking at the color temperature in your shot and setting an accurate white, removing any unnatural color cast.

This can’t be done with the color picker in FCPX, but there are ways to make your whites accurate.
