Lock and Load FCP plug-in boasts faster stabilization

updated 08:30 pm EDT, Wed August 26, 2009

Lock and Load FCP plug-in

CoreMelt has released its newest Final Cut Pro plug-in, Lock and Load. The software is used to stabilize a project's unsteady video -- supposedly six times faster than the video stabilizer built-in to FCP, Smoothcam. The plug-in utilizes an adaptive zoom feature that compensates for different levels of movement, zooming the videos framing to remove the shaking edges. The application allows users to specify which portion of the clip should be analyzed and ignores foreground motion when stabilizing the video.

Users can preview the stabilized video without having to render it. The plug-in can also be stabilized between keyframes, allowing shots to switch from steady to unstable throughout the clip. Lock and Load requires Mac OS X 10.5.4 and FCP 6 and is available from the CoreMelt online store for $120. Registered users of CoreMelt Complete V2 can buy the plug-in for a discounted price of $100.
