http://www.duber.tv/en/matchmoving/syntheyes-tracking/

Hi guys,
one of the most-well-known 3D artists in Czech Republic and my friend and workmate, Lukas Dubeda (loocas duber), recently launched a website with free videotutorials.
Because I've recorded some videotutorials in the past (some introduction to 3ds max, UV mapping, FumeFX, everything in my native Czech language...) and people liked it, loocas asked me to record some matchmoving tutorials.
First, I recorded PFTrack series, because loocas was interested in PFT and because this Pixel Farm's software is great option for beginners who like to see their solution obtained fully automated way (well let's get over the fact that this works accurately only in 17% of shots). It was my first recording in english and it was real challenge for me, as you can hear in these six PFTrack tutorials - they were recorded in september 2007, bloody early, more than half a year before launching the website Very Happy
Why am I writing about PFTutorials and why should you watch it, when we are on SynthEyes website and most of you are SynthEyes users? Well, let's say that these PFTrack series are more about matchmoving in general than about Pixel Farm's software itself. Yes, these six tutorials were supposed to be PFTrack tuts and I'm showing everything on PFTrack, but at the end, it's quite simillar to Tim Dobberts gnomon matchmoving DVDs, rather than to fxPHD or cmiVFX PFTutors... Of course I didn't want to duplicate Dobbert, but like his DVDs, my six PFTuts may be great way for beginners to understand matchmoving more deeply than just pushing the Track and Solve button.

And about week ago, I recorded another matchmoving tutorial for duber.tv website. loocas asked me to record a video about tracking a shot where he wants to put in some CG objects and do some rendering and compositing tutors... It is quite low parallax hand-held shot with some zooming, so I decided to show some advanced approach. And where are you going to manage some advanced techniques with ultimate flexibility and smoothness?

Of course, in SynthEyes!!! Enjoy the tutorial, I hope it may help some of you guys Smile

I just watched this. Great tutorial.

One question. Is it possible to reuse those auxiliary frames at the end, with the points already attached and solved?

I am working on a project due in 7 days and I have a great number of hand held low parallax shots. Is there anyway to avoid a lot of redundant tracking?

Thanks,
Casey
