- November 18th: SynthEyes 1311 Build 1029 (All platforms). A huge new 3-D planar tracking feature set, so big it needed its own 47 page manual! "Run Now" for After Effects exporters saves time. Enhanced texture extraction for less blur on traveling shots and complex meshes. Motion blur for the perspective view's Preview Movie, plus ASF, MP4, and WMV writing from Windows. And Python and Extreme scripting are now available to all Pro users.
