This is going to be very useful!

There's nothing we can't argue about on the FCPX COW Forum

Seems great addition, and this adds a very powerful package to FCPX (tracking for color correction, effects, etc. ...)

I'm a bit bumped by the upgrade pricing from the normal SliceX version, but other than that, I think it's a very attractive priced package.

FWiW ToolFarm has it on sale (slicex full version) through the 23rd for $99 instead of $149.

If there was one plugin that Apple should buy to bake directly into the program, this is it.

+1

wished at least Color Corrector's current masking tools
to be available within EVERY filter and effect in the stack.

and if apple would add splines and planar tracking...
with tracking data stored into the media management...

feature request to Apple ... one more time :-)

What would you do with that data?

Crunch it, of course.

I'd imagine you could take the data to Ae or whatever system of choice and do the real work.

Interesting thought, is there a way to get the tracking data out of Slice X? It seems like Motion could really benefit from something like that.

SliceX does not export the track data. If you are looking to get planar tracking data to Motion, than you could use mocha AE v3 which supports After Effects CS3-CS4, Final Cut v7 and Motion. mocha AE v3 also includes a free plug-in to get mocha mask data to FCP7 for those still working on it.


There are a few tutorials that cover this here: http://www.imagineersystems.com/videos?tagFilter=import+to+Apple+Motion&sor...

Best,
Ross

crunch is good.

No, but as far as I understand, planar tracking is a variation of optical flow analysis. Therefor you need no explicit tracking points since the tracker identifies and follows the path of whole pixel clusters instead.

Like optical flow, these planar analysis data could be stored in the media management, e.g. analyzed in the background during import, so you would only have to switch the tracking for a mask to 'on', regardless how
many masks you apply to the once analyzed clip ;-)

Best regards,
Bernhard

Yes, but you still have to explicitly "tell" the software what to track, what to ignore and what kind of transforms to apply to the data. I'm sure you can let the application analyze whole clips in the background, but it doesn't seem as useful or as efficient for 2D tracking. Since you would have to throw out so much data anyway.
