View Full Version : Cheap camera tracking backgrounds

Just wondering if anyone has tried this software? I'm sure it's probably garbage, but thought it was interesting. It uses the iphone4 or 4s cameras to generate camera tracking data, then exports to Lightwave. Sounds interesting.

I really only tested it once, but it didn't seem particularly useful. More of a nodal track, not actual 3D, in which case a simple 2D track in After Effects would be vastly superior (attempting to use an accelerometer to estimate 3D location is...well...horrifically vague!).

That said, I really want to give it another chance at some point, especially if I can use it to generate helper data for tracking objects (for example, tape the iPhone to the back of an actor that needs prosthetic extensions!).
