macbreak fcpx sliceX

In this week's episode of MacBreak Studio, the tracking masking tool Slice X from Coremelt is demonstrated. See how easy it is to selectively colour correct a moving object.

A slight diversion from the normal FCPX & Motion tutorials this week. In this new episode of MacBreak Studio, Steve Martin shows Mark Spencer how easy it is to selectively mask & track then colour correct an object using Slice X.

Slice X is a plugin for FCPX that is powered by Mocha, a planar tracking engine from Imagineer Systems. Priced at just $99, Slice X brings mask tracking features into FCPX that are seen on high-end systems costing many ten thousands of pounds. As Roger Bolton from Coremelt says, 'Just draw a shape and hit track.'

If you would like to know more about FCPX, take a look at Ripple Training's tutorial Final Cut Pro 10.1 In-Depth.  It is priced at $29.99 and available from the Ripple Training website.

If you would like to know more about Slice X and what features the plugin will have in the future, check out our interview with Roger from Coremelt at NAB 2014.
