Any one know of a good technique to match the 3D camera motion with live action using just the image from the plate shot?

I know it sounds like an unreasonable request but just wondering.

I am also wondering if anyone can suggest a good camera match move SW package that is somewhat reasonably priced?

Thanks.

Well, I'd suggest Syntheyes - http://www.ssontech.com (I keep doing that) - excpetionally good, and not only because of the pricing either.
You might also want to check out Voodoo http://www.digilab.uni-hannover.de/download.html which is free (I haven't tried it yet, but it supports LW).

I've done a few simple manual tracks ages ago, but honestly, if I look at the price of Syntheyes it isn't worth doing - not even if you have the salary of a burger flipper ;)

Cheers,
Mike

Thanks guys. I'll check that stuff out. Yeah I've done some manual tracking but it.... well... sucks... I just can't get it perfect and it takes so much time...
