Custom masking and auto tracking as there is in DaVinci Resolve?
by Charles Ford 2 years ago
What do you think the chances are that FCPX 4. (or above) will some day have custom masking and auto tracking in Color Effects, as there is in DaVinci Resolve
Re: Custom masking and auto tracking as there is in DaVinci Resolve?
by Jeremy Garchow 2 years ago
Slim to none. There are 3rd party trackers (Track X) and shape and color masks available on almost any filter. There s also a separate Draw Mask filter.

I use Streamclip 1.9.2 on my mac to convert my 7D H264 files to ProRes (proxy) with no problem. My daughter on the other hand, who is in film school, has Streamclip 1.9.2 on her mac and has been trying to convert her 5D files to ProRes as well. When she goes to the "Compression" drop down there are only two ProRes options available, both of them are ProRes 442. There is no LT, HQ or Proxy options. Any solutions?
