(Sydney, Australia--August 20, 2012) CoreMelt, a leading provider of advanced video plug-in effects for the editorial, composting, design and visual effects communities, today announced the release of its Lock & Load stabilizer for Final Cut Pro X users.
Lock & Load has long been an essential tool for legacy Final Cut Pro users, now the new generation of Final Cut Pro X users can add the full power of an advanced stabilization tool to their editing repertoire. As well as providing fast easy smoothing of all kinds of camera motion, Lock & Load also provides advanced Rolling Shutter reduction to help minimize skew and wobble artifacts from CMOS sensors used in popular DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D Mk III or even iPhone or iPad footage.
Roger Bolton, CoreMelt founder, director and visual effects veteran points out “The Rolling Shutter reduction built into Final Cut Pro X is one size fits all, there is only an overall strength control. For CoreMelt Lock & Load, we individually tested the most popular types of DSLR cameras and optimized our results for the specific CMOS sensors of each camera.” Lock & Load’s superior results are the result of over eight years of development and improvement of the proprietary stabilization and shutter reduction algorithm.
Why use Lock & Load X over the built in Stabilizer in FCP X?
• Faster analysis, up to 12 times faster at analyzing the motion in your clip than the built in stabilizer.
• Better results, more power rolling shutter reduction, less wobble, zooming and scaling artifacts.
• More powerful, advanced features like tracking region of interest and full parameter key-framing let you handle otherwise un-trackable clips.
