Imagineer Systems announced it has partnered with CoreMelt to integrate Imagineer’s Planar Tracker into SliceX, CoreMelt’s shape masking plug-in for FCP X.
Imagineer’s relationship with CoreMelt is the most recent in a string of partnerships in which VFX software developers have integrated 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.
Additionally, Imagineer Systems announced it will preview new versions of mocha Pro and mocha AE during NAB. In the new mocha v3.2 versions, Imagineer has added Chinese and Japanese support, which includes a translated interface and documentation, as well as a new toolkit made available for additional language versions in the future. mocha v3.2 will also add support for Contour ShuttlePro controllers to allow artists more options, shortcuts and a speedier workflow.
In February, Imagineer Systems was honored by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences with a Scientific and Technical Award for mocha and its Planar Tracking technology.
