SynthEyes User Manual
This is the main SynthEyes User Manual, which also includes the SynthEyes Reference Material, ie breakdowns of all the views, panels, and dialogs. Covers automatic and supervised tracking of all kinds, but not planar or geometric hierarchy tracking, which have their own manuals.
Planar Tracking Manual
Describes planar tracking methods, which are used to track flat objects for tasks such as sign replacements. Also covers various planar tracking exports.
Geometric Hierarchy Tracking Manual
Geometric Hierarchy Tracking works from known meshes and/or motion hierarchies to do tracking directly on meshes, and also to use regular trackers to animate constrained hierarchies of moving parts. That might include body parts, faces, doors, wheels on cars, and other constrained movements.
Camera Calibration Manual
SynthEyes has a large Camera Calibration subsystem to determine lens distortion and centering from dot arrays, checkerboards, random dots, and live shots. This manual describes how to shoot images to feed it, how to operate it, and what to do with the results.
Synthia User Manual
Synthia is SynthEyes's amazing instructible assistant, which can perform simple English-like commands. It is an incredible way to perform small tasks without requiring traditional (Sizzle or Python) programming. And it can be easily taught to understand your own terminology and favorite operations, to accelerate your workflow.
Phase Reference Manual
Phases let you create a nodal processing structure for solving scenes, especially when they require unusual alignment or solving strategies. This manual describes how to use Phases, and what each variety of Phase does.
Sizzle Programming Manual
Sizzle is SynthEyes's native programming language; it is small, fast, and easy to learn for anyone familiar with typical scripting languages. The Sizzle manual has the complete object and attribute descriptions; python and Synthia use these as well so this is the primary source. The manual also describes SynthEyes's command-line arguments and similar integration features.
SyPy Python Reference Manual
SyPy is a python module that lets you program SynthEyes using python. SyPy's incredibly flexible architecture allows you to control SynthEyes even from inside the python interpreters of other applications, simplifying integration tasks since no intermediate files are required.
