Kevin McAuliffe is a big fan of Mocha Pro and likes how CoreMelt has integrated Mocha tracking technology into their products. In this review he takes a look at SliceX and finds it’s “an essential tool that you’ll want to add to your toolkit.”
SliceX lets you create instant Shape Masks to cut out layers or isolate effects directly in Final Cut Pro X without having to go into Motion or create the masks with an external program. SliceX includes ten effects motion templates for common tasks and you can also use the Shape Masks with built in effects, the built in color corrector or with third party plugins. SliceX powered by mocha takes the pain out of following complex motion, just draw a shape and hit track. You can then adjust with manual keyframes as needed.
CoreMelt SliceX Review
Here’s an excerpt from Kevin McAuliff’s review:
I’m a huge fan of motion tracking and of Imagineer Systems. Mocha Pro has gotten me out of a jam more times than I can count, and I love to see how it’s taken and integrated into other NLE’s and compositing applications. They recently released Mocha Pro the Plug-In for Media Composer, Adobe, and OFX Hosts. This is very cool, but what I find even cooler is how CoreMelt has integrated Mocha tracking technology into three different plugins for Final Cut Pro X, and in this review, we’re going to take a look at SliceX from CoreMelt.
..if you do any type of tracked blurring work (even color correction), [SliceX] is an essential tool that you’ll want to add to your toolkit.

Coremelt LUTx Bundle – Only $79 – Now through March 21, 2017
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.
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.
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)

Free LUTs and LUT Tools
FCPXFREE.com LUTs for use with Coremelt LUT
FCPXFree.com has many free Look Up Tables (LUTs) for use with CoreMelt LUTx, to get the professional finish you are looking for.
Look up tables let you apply color correction looks created by professional colorists onto your footage inside FCP X, or you can apply Camera LUTs which convert from LOG to rec709 (video) color space. These cannot be loaded directly into FCP X. You need a LUT loader plug-in, the two free templates in CoreMelt LUTx will allow you to load and apply these LUTs.
LUT Buddy was created with the professional colorist in mind. In fact, the product came directly out of the film work of Stu Maschwitz, the Creative Director for many of our products. LUT Buddy runs in popular editors like After Effects and FCP, and shares its values beautifully with our new BulletProof application. Get LUT Buddy as part of Shooter Suite or Color Suite, but you can download it by itself too.
