PF Track 2013.4.1 & PF Clean 2013.4.1 | 147 MB
PFTrack enables computer generated effects to be matched with film or video sequences no matter what their resolution. PFTrack is also a suite of analysis technologies designed to extract both detailed camera information and pixel motion data from video and film sequences and allow this data to be fully utilized within a post-production environment.
New in PF Track 2013
The unique geometry tracking system in PFTrack allows 3D geometry to be imported into PFTrack and then matched to sequences, making this an ideal tool for head and facial replacement meaning artists can now be confident that animated CG, when rendered and composited, will exactly match the live action. Complex Geometry can be imported and used to solve cameras in addition to the use of automatic or user placed features. This is perfect for problematic shots or for tracking set extension models into footage.
Using motion groups it is a simple task to extract both camera and object motion. Any or all motions can be exported along with animated geometry if required. Version 5.0 includes Geometry Tracking vertex weighting this allows you to paint the influence each vertex point has on the final tracking. A simple paint tool allows you to quickly paint onto the imported 3D geometry.
Control your world
PFTrack is a collection cutting edge CG integration tools, and is regarded as the most innovative product of its kind. With unparalleled flexibility, functionality and precision, it is the most widely adopted matchmoving software for a reason: It does what other tools can't.
PFTrack empowers artists with innovative ways to accurately recreate the world space, camera, and object movements of the original live action scene, and rebuild the natural environment where CG characters will exist. From tracking to scene reconstruction and layout, PFTrack has the tools you need for every shot.
Precise, without paying the price
With direct support for raw LIDAR scans, survey-based matchmoving in PFTrack is extremely efficient. Its metadata-managed processing core makes quick work of immense survey data packages, so absolute precision doesn’t bring your productivity to a halt.
The power of creation
And now, with revolutionary ways of creating scene surveys using nothing more than a still camera, PFTrack has changed the game once again by all but eliminating the cost of on-set data acquisition.
