Tips and things to watch out for
- TrackX generators track the clip they are connected to. Connected clips always connect down to the primary storyline, so you must have your background that you wish to track on the primary storyline. Having a gap ot audio there won't work.
- If you wish to apply TrackX to multi-cam clips you have to apply it to the clip inside the angle editor. Trying to apply it to multicam clips on the top level is not supported.
- SliceX has also been updated so that you can now delete bad track data and manually keyframe, for example if the object you are tracking gets occluded. Please see this tutorial for details (tutorial shows TrackX but the same workflow applies to SliceX.
- TrackX cannot track clips that are stabilized using the built in stabilizer in FCP X. If you need to stabilize a clip and then track an object, you can use CoreMelt Lock & Load, but you need to make sure that TrackX is applied first and then Lock & Load above it on the effects stack.
- If you run into any issues please try optimizing your media first and then try applying TrackX again.
