How To Use Coremelt FCPX Plugins On Apple M1 / M2 Silicon

How To Use Coremelt FCPX Plugins On Apple M1 / M2 Silicon

Our Lock and Load, PaintXStyleX, ModelXSliceX, LUTx and TrackX products are Apple Silicon native.  To install any of them please use the CoreMelt Manager application. 

The V2 plugin set and Chromatic are discontinued and do not work natively on Apple Silicon mac system. 

However they can be used in Final Cut Pro using Rosetta2 emulation. However  - in our testing the speed and performance is actually quite good and very stable.  To take advantage of this method, first install our plugins as normal, make sure FCP X is not open,  then download this and put on your desktop or anywhere else, unzip and run it

(note this will only launch FCP X in Rosetta mode when using this applet, the default will still be native)

Our plugins will appear and be usable as normal after doing this.   Very roughly the speed on an M1 mac mini running Final Cut Pro X and our plugins in Rosetta2 emulation is comparable or even faster than a 2020 model Macbook Pro with 6 core Intel i7, Apple's M1 is a really fast chip ! Note you must launch FCP X everytime using this applet instead of double clicking on the FCP X icon whenever you want to use our plugins.  

Please note Apple has stopped FCP 10.6.6 and later from running Intel plugins even under Rosetta2 mode. Read the details here.

If you do come across any issues using this method, please do not hesitate to contact us.
