SynthEyes Camera Tracker
SynthEyes offers a complete high-end feature set, including tracking, stabilization, motion capture, and mesh building. It handles camera tracking, object tracking, object tracking from reference meshes, camera+object tracking, multiple-shot tracking, tripod (nodal, 2.5-D) tracking, mixed tripod and translating shots, stereoscopic shots, nodal stereoscopic shots, zooms, lens distortion, light solving. It can handle shots of any resolution—DV, HD, film, IMAX, with 8-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit float data, and can be used on shots with thousands of frames. A nifty feature simplifies and speeds tracking for green-screen shots. The image preprocessor can help remove grain, compression artifacts, off-centering, or varying lighting; improve low-contrast shots; or shoe-horn shots into available RAM for quicker handling.
SynthEyes offers complete control over the tracking process for challenging shots, including an efficient workflow for supervised trackers, combined automated/supervised tracking, incremental solving, a hard and soft path locking system, and cross-camera constraints for stereo. You can set up a coordinate system with tracker constraints, camera constraints, a line-based single-frame alignment system, or manually.
SynthEyes exports to about 25 different 2-D and 3-D programs. The Sizzle scripting language lets you customize the standard exports, or add your own imports, exports, or tools. You can customize the color scheme, keyboard mapping, and viewport configurations.
PC/Mac: SynthEyes runs on Windows XP, XP Pro 64, Vista, Vista 64, 32-bit Win7, and 64-bit Win7. Or, select the Mac OS X 10.4/10.5 Universal version for Intel or G5/G4 Power Macs. Or, the 64-bit 10.5 Mac OS X Intel-Mac version (64-bit PowerPC binary is currently also included but may be frozen or discontinued at any time). SynthEyes takes full advantage of your multi-core machine with many threaded algorithms and extensive SSE2 optimizations.
