trackx_mocha_slide_710x350

Coremelt TrackX is a plugin for Final Cut Pro X that allows you to track objects in your footage while inside FCP X using Mocha and without needing to take footage to an outside program like After Effects or Motion. The trackers are added to your footage and you can replace screens, add tracking text or blur logos and such directly from your FCP X project.

The workflow is rather straightforward. Although it is not an entry-level task, it is still fairly simple to follow the tutorials and start tracking with TrackX. My jaw dropped the first time I saw this working in my FCP X project. [click to continue…]

Canon-5D-Mark-III

ebay (via Focus Camera – 99.1% positive feedback) has the Canon 5D Mark III in a bundle with Adobe Lightroom 5 for $2675 (reg. $3399 for the 5D3). Don’t expect this deal to last long. Check it out here on ebay.

The listing says it is new, but doesn’t specify whether it is gray market or a US product. You should assume that it is probably a gray market item.
