Imagineer Systems and CoreMelt Announce New Final Cut Plug-in at NAB2013: SliceX powered by mocha

Imagineer Systems, creators of the Academy Award winning mocha Planar Tracking technology, and CoreMelt today announced a new Final Cut Pro X masking plug-in, SliceX powered by mocha. This new version of SliceX comes as a result of a strategic partnership between Imagineer Systems and CoreMelt, resulting in the integration of Imagineer’s award winning Planar Tracker into CoreMelt’s shape masking tool.


SliceX powered by mocha will go on pre-release sale today for the limited price of $99 per seat. MSRP list price will be $149 per seat.

SliceX powered by mocha will be demonstrated at NAB 2013 this week at the Imagineer Systems booth #SL3329 at the Plug In Pavilion in the Las Vegas Convention Center. SliceX will also be shown at the 12th annual Las Vegas SuperMeet on Tuesday night. (

SliceX powered by mocha lets you create instant shape masks to cut out layers or isolate effects directly in Final Cut Pro X without having to go into Motion or create the masks with an external program. With this new version, mocha planar tracking allows artists to quickly and easily track roto shapes for accurate masking with significantly less manual keyframing. SliceX also includes nine motion templates for common tasks and you can also use the shape masks with built in effects, the built in color corrector or with third party plugins.


“Working with Coremelt on the newest version of SliceX is an exciting development for the Final Cut X community,” said Ross Shain, chief marketing officer for Imagineer Systems. “mocha’s planar tracking tools are used by effects artists around the world and now Final Cut X users will have that same tracking power right on the Final Cut timeline. SliceX combined with mocha’s tracking is simply a must-have tool for Final Cut X users that want to increase their visual effects and color correction capabilities without leaving the application. Creating and animating masks has never been easier.”


“The announcement that SliceX from CoreMelt will be incorporating planar tracking technology from mocha is very exciting. The potential of such an advancement could help take the fastest, easiest professional NLE on the market and make it even faster, by not having to go out to Motion or AE for this type of work,’ added Ben Balser, “SliceX is already a solid staple in many FCP editors toolboxes, but adding planar tracking will put us light years ahead in achieving record setting project turnaround times. I’m very eager to get my hands on it.”

Imagineer’s relationship with CoreMelt is the most recent in a string of partnerships in which industry leading post production technology developers have recognized the value of Imagineer’s Planar Tracking and software developer’s kit (Planar Tracker SDK). In recent months, Imagineer has entered into strategic partnerships and licensing agreements with companies such as Adobe Systems, Silhouette, Quantel and FXhome.
