Guildford, UK – January 13, 2014 – Imagineer Systems, creators of the Academy Award-winning mocha® Planar Tracking technology, and CoreMelt, the leading provider of advanced video plug-in effects, today announced the release of TrackX powered by mocha. The latest Apple® Final Cut Pro® X (FCP X) plug-in to come out of the strategic partnership between Imagineer Systems and CoreMelt, TrackX powered by mocha leverages the Academy Award-winning Planar Tracking technology to precisely track camera motion, objects and people for seamless visual effects and screen composites.

TrackX powered by mocha is a tremendous leap ahead in plug-in innovation for Final Cut Pro X,” comments Ross Shain, chief marketing officer, Imagineer Systems. “CoreMelt has taken Imagineer’s innovative Planar Tracking engine and added a simple-to-use plug-in interface, giving Final Cut Pro X editors a powerful, yet easy-to-use set of tools to manage complex tracking projects with exacting precision. No need to leave the timeline or learn a complicated VFX program. The Final Cut user community will love the ability to create these advanced visual effects directly inside their favorite editor.”

Ideal for creating realistic screen inserts, set extensions and sky replacements, TrackX powered by mocha lets FCP X editors easily track and replace objects within a video, such as an image on a cell phone, TV screen or sign, as well as add graphics and text, including lower-thirds, to follow objects in motion. TrackX’s customizable parameters provide FCP X editors with controls to fine-tune translation, scale, rotation and perspective motion of text and video, eliminating the need to do manual keyframing. Designed to manage the most difficult tracking challenges, mocha technology stays locked on through shaky, grainy and motion-blurred video.

With TrackX powered by mocha, editors can now directly accomplish many tracking tasks that would have otherwise involved jumping into complex compositing software.”Shain emphasizes the ease of integrating Imagineer’s mocha Planar Tracking technology for development partners like CoreMelt. “Thanks to Imagineer’s developer-friendly SDK, partners like CoreMelt can easily integratemocha’s Planar Tracking technology into their plug-ins, making Hollywood-caliber visual effects more accessible than ever before.”
