Dynamic Texturing

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

Compose authentic ACSII effects and sophisticated versions of the principle painting your footage with custom set of characters. Mosaic supports any mono-spaced font. Texturing is performed in a coordinate space independent of the viewer and lets you zoom into the effect to create sharp close-ups.

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

Enhance the mapping with sharp borders, triangulations, crosses and grid overlays or transmute the footage into wireframe patterns.

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.

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)

Apple Releases Final Cut Pro X 10.3

Apple Releases Final Cut Pro X 10.3

fcpx logoApple just released the latest major upgrade to Final Cut Pro X 10.3.

There are lots of new features in this version.  Larry Jordan has looked it over and shares what he has learned on his blog here.

Here’s an excerpt:

KEY NEW FEATURES

Apple’s marquee features for the software include:

  • A redesigned interface
  • Improvements to the Magnetic Timeline
  • Support for wide color gamut Rec. 2020 video (the color space portion of the HDR spec)

Within those three categories are literally dozens of changes.

From my point of view, the interface changes are the most visible, the changes to Roles and the Magnetic Timeline are the most significant and its support for Rec. 2020 video the most future-oriented.

Hawaiki Keyer 3.0 is now available

Hawaiki Keyer 3.0 is a complete keying system for green screens and blue screens.  It features an innovative keying algorithm, a unique diagnostic toolset and unrivalled compositing options. The new Hawaiki Keyer is designed to help you get the perfect key with the minimum of guesswork.

Hawaiki Keyer is the most powerful and best value keying solution for Apple’s Final Cut Pro X and Motion 5.

Objectives – While we’ve refined the core algorithms and added some exciting new features, including the unique and extremely powerful Pre-Qualify option, the focus of this release has been about giving you the tools to reduce the guesswork so you can not only pull a better key but finish the job much faster. We’ve aimed to achieve this in a few different ways – by removing, reordering and renaming existing parameters, by providing more refined control of existing processes and by adding new and unique views that show both what you need to do and what you’ve done.
