  • 3D tracking

    Analyze source footage to reproduce original camera movement and realistically composite elements into your shots.

  • Matchbox Timeline FX

    Access, build, and apply custom shaders and transitions using the powerful Matchbox GLSL shader creation tool, now available as a Timeline FX.
