Briefly: Motion tracking for Final Cut Pro X, POP3it Pro updated
Monday, January 13, 2014 @ 3:00pm

The latest Final Cut Pro X plugin from Imagineer Systems and CoreMelt, TrackX powered by mocha has been released. Offering Planar Tracking technology for camera motion tracking, users can track objects and people for seamless visual effect implementation and creating screen composites. Intended for creating realistic screen inserts, set extensions and sky replacements, TrackX lets editors using Final Cut Pro X track and replace objects within a video, such as an image on a cell phone, TV display or sign, and add graphics or text -- all while following objects in motion. Its customizable parameters provide editors with translation, scale, rotation and perspective motion controls, eliminating manual keyframing.



TrackX features Simple Tracker, for quick floating lower thirds or graphics following a person or object; Track Layer, for advanced tracking with perspective shifts; and Track Text, a text generator for tracking text with perspective and masking. Available for $100, users who have already purchased SliceX can purchase TrackX at an upgrade price of $50. SliceX and TrackX can be bundled for $150. POP3it Pro update features bug fixes, imported plugin updates from other CNS plugins Comm-Unity Networking Systems (CNS) has released a small update for its POP3it Pro plugin for FileMaker Pro. POP3it Pro 4.1.14 offers connection to POP3 email servers and can download email directly to one's FileMaker Pro database, also facilitating direct email import from mailbox storage files of email clients like Thunderbird, Eudora, and Apple Mail. Newly added with the update are bug fixes, including rectifying an issue with decoding long attachment names, and an issue with the CheckAccount function not working under FileMaker Pro 13. Additionally, core plugin updates from other CNS plugins are imported. Though the release does not include a 64-bit version of the plugin, one is currently in the works. Available immediately for download online, a one-user license for the client version of POP3it Pro can be purchased for $65, and a ten-user license is $320. A full working demo copy of PRO3it 4.1.14 available is for testing.
