UPDATE:

Since it has officially been announced, here's the demo video. Basically, Drive X lets you take tracking data, just like you generate with SliceX and TrackX, and apply it to "drive" other parameters. It is still in development and will be released in the Fall of 2015.

wild guessing ... :
TrackX ... uhm, tracks points/planes in a video.
SliceX utilizes parts='slices' of a video

DriveX - and its logo - brings up to me:
a stitcher, like the panorama feature for stills. Take a handful of shots, and travel around it. Software identifies 'connections', 'blends it' together, regarding perspectives! … handy for example for CGI set-extensions.
KenBurns-Rostrum-on-steroids. …

… points, parts, frames ... logically development....

In a private email I made guesses, was told I was very, very close to what it was, but still can't be told anything. And promised to keep my guesses to myself. I'd say not, Karsten. But who knows, I'm just guessing like everyone else.

I noticed the 3 broadcast colors (red, blue, green) used for grading, three color curves (the lines), and some thoughts about new products Mr. Bolton spoke about while I worked for him at NAB. So, even with the "inside" information I had, I'm still not on target, but close.

Something to do with color grading, or particles, or curves, or maybe even a node based workflow, or maybe a generator of some sort, or something to do with tracking, layers, colors, lines, driving me insane.

"Drive" X, so something with tracking, and something about "drive". Hard drive, driving Ms. Daisy, Minnie Driver, cruise control, countryside drive, Hollywood Drive, peripheral drivers, drive me freakin' insane...

I'm not good at waiting. But I have a good idea of what we'll hear, I think, but not sure. Holding my breath now...

What the hell does "Drive" mean?

Hour and a half and I won't be so tense, if you catch the drift.

Why post something if you can't tell us?
Kinda silly...

Just saw a demo - looks promising! But they haven't officially unveiled it yet (later tonight!).

Ben, I can't get the video to play in either Safari or Firefox. Do you have an alternate URL?

The php coding on the webpage is showing errors in my debugger.

same here, doesn't play in Safari nor Chrome.
But…
Wait until it is fully downloaded, right-click, 'Save as Quicktime Movie', then it works...

It is a rather large video file, I have removed it and am just going to rely on the FB link, rather than re-encode it.

Using your tracking data to "drive" other parameters in Motion? Amazing!

The video played for me (Safari), just did not give any feedback that it was buffering and took longer than usual to buffer (20 sec. or so).
