[This is an excerpt from our latest webinar: 3rd-Party Plug-ins for Final Cut Pro X, which you can download from our store. You can also access all our Final Cut Pro X training by becoming a subscriber.]
One of the best features in Final Cut Pro X isn’t made by Apple — it’s the vast collection of 3rd-party plug-ins and programs that support and extend Final Cut itself.
Recently, Lary Jordan showcased several new plug-ins for Final Cut. One of the more amazing is TrackX, by CoreMelt. (CoreMelt is a long-time developer of effects plug-ins for Final Cut, Motion, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.)
In this demo, see how you can use TrackX to motion track an object in Final Cut Pro X without using tracking markers or prepping the background. Then, watch as Larry shows you how to insert one video clip into another video clip, then track the movement.

5 Responses to FCP X: Using Coremelt TrackX [Video]
Looks great, but when I went to the CoreMelt website I noticed the price is $99, not $49.
You are correct, I got the price wrong. I’m correcting the movie later today.
I got a chance to see Roger doing a webinar on his new product TrackX and I was amazed by what is could do. Unfortunately as of right now this program is only writen for FCPX and not Motion 5, what a shame. As I saw in your video about this product, Motion 5 couldn’t track your frame. When I asked Roger if he plans on supporting Motion5 he said not untill I get enough requests for it.Larry PLEASE help get the word out, your the man.
You might have noticed that if you use track text
you can’t add anything like a drop shadow, (this is sad). If you use simple tracker and create a title in Motion and sent it to FCPX you need to make a compound clip first before you drop it into the well. In my opinion one needs to be able to edit text and add at minimum a drop shadow quickly. Your thoughts ?
Larry you have a huge following and getting the word out could make all the difference in the world.
thanks in advance
Bruce, you can add a drop shadow in Track Text. In the text editor click on the Font button then controls for adding and modifying text shadow appear.
You are correct, What I should have said to begin with, was how Motion 5 or even FCPX handles the variables of a drop
shadow/endent/glows or anything beyong the basic title.
I think this product is SO CLOSE to being awesome. For me it has to work in Motion5 as well & be able to quickly edit text that was misspelled and keep it’s attributes that has been artfully created.
I hope I’m not the only one that thinks these add-on’s would put this product over the top.
