    Has anyone seen this? I saw the trailer a couple of weeks ago, and it looks very impressive. I’ve been wanting to have a good 3D tracker for FCPX for a while, I’m not sure if this one also works with all the included effects of FCPX or only with their 3D text-plugins etc.
    I bought a lot of products of them, and – unlike Pixelfilm – I’ve always been very impressed with both the quality and the flexibility of their tools, so I’m very curious to see this working. Doubting if I should pre-order.

    I’m interested too.

    It says it works in fcpx, but seems like Motion would be a better candidate for compositing.

    The preorder seems like a lay-up, but wondering how it actually works.

    One click track? I’d say no way. 🙂

    I’ve looked at the demos and they show you can import the new 3-d models that come in the latest FCPX build, like the flying bug alien robot thing, so not just text. Apparently, it only works in one particular 3-d format that Apple is using, for now, though I may be wrong about that exclusive model thing… its just what I’m reading between the lines in the descriptions.

    The demo movie touts the extreme things you can composite once you have a good 3-d tracker, but my applications are far more mundane, generally, and a demo showing how to use it in digital set extensions, re-mapping graphics onto buildings, cars, billboards, etc. is more my speed. Some of that I guess is doable thru 2-d trackers, I know, the follow-on demos could maybe point out how a 3-d tracker is better? –

    As to a purchase, I wish i had the extra cash to just get it now but absent a paying client with a real need for it, the Business Manager says; “not now, not until someone else is paying for it”. Also; “Your lunch is ready, come upstairs.”

    Here’s a tutorial that shows a little more in how it works.

    Yes, I saw it. Looks interesting. They are promising more tutorials with how it works inside FCPX as well, which is something I’m looking forward to even more.
