in Multimedia (E)

[prMac.com] Byron Bay, NSW/Australia - CoreMelt today announced the release of Lock & Load, the worlds fastest video stabilizer for Final Cut Pro. Lock and Load takes shaky footage and makes it usable. Just select the clip, analyze it 6 times faster than Smoothcam, and playback the smoothed clip. That's it, instant gratification, even on clips with complex rotation motion or camera zooms. Lock and load is capable of intelligently ignoring foreground motion even on busy scenes or with dark backgrounds.

Lock & Load's advanced features:

* No need to choose tracking points, Lock & Load intelligently analyzes the entire clip for you, just select the clip and go.

* With intelligent adaptive zoom, Lock & Load will automatically compensate for differing levels of movement and zoom in to remove edges.

* Removes or smooths rotation and zoom changes as well as X and Y movement.

* Analyses only the portion of the clip you select, no need to export and re-import long clips.

* Works with all kinds of footage, no "too much movement" errors.

* Gives smoother and more fluid results on all types of footage from landscapes to city scenes.

* Intelligently ignores foreground motion.

* Multithreaded motion analysis uses all processors on your system.

* Realtime preview of the smoothed clip without rendering.

* No learning curve, instant intuitive user interface, works directly on the FCP timeline.
