Does anyone know of a simple application that can extract motion from existing footage for use in a series of fly-over live archivis movies I need to create.

I am hiring a camera rigged helicopter to fly over a site and I need to build the 3D model into the site. Standard stuff but new to me.

Thanks all.

I did this with Syntheyes, super easy. If you have some footage, you can test it in the demo.

I emailed you an example (screenshots). :)

SynthEyes indeed.

And just because I'm picky, in this context it is usually referred to as match moving.
Motion capture usually refers to capturing the performance of an actor while match moving is the art of matching CG plates with live footage.

Cheers,
