Not sure what you need or if you're looking at the right product?
SynthEyes is a PC or Mac software application for 3-D camera-tracking, also known as match-moving, which is widely used in film, television, commercial, and music video post-production.
SynthEyes can look at the image sequence from your live-action shoot and determine how the real camera moved during the shoot, what the field of view (~focal length) was, and where various features were in 3-D, so that you can create computer-generated imagery that exactly fits into the shot.
You can use SynthEyes to help insert animated creatures or vehicles; fix shaky shots; extend or fix a set; add virtual sets to green-screen shoots; produce 3D stereoscopic films; create architectural previews; reconstruct accidents; do product placements after the shoot; add 3D cybernetic implants, cosmetic effects, or injuries to actors; produce panoramic backdrops or clean plates; build textured 3-D meshes from images; add 3-D particle effects; or capture body motion to drive computer-generated characters. And those are just the more common uses; we're sure you can think of more.
Take a deep breath! SynthEyes offers tracking, set reconstruction, stabilization, and motion capture. It handles camera tracking, object tracking, object tracking from reference meshes, camera+object tracking, survey shots, multiple-shot tracking, tripod (nodal, 2.5-D) tracking, mixed tripod and translating shots, stereoscopic shots, nodal stereoscopic shots, zooms, lens distortion, light solving. It can handle shots of any resolution — DV, HD, film, IMAX (Intro limited to 1920x1080), with 8-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit float data, and can be used on shots with thousands of frames. A keyer simplifies and speeds tracking for green-screen shots. The image preprocessor helps remove grain, compression artifacts, off-centering, or varying lighting; improve low-contrast shots; or shoe-horn shots into available RAM for quicker handling. Textures can be extracted for a mesh from the image sequence, producing higher resolution and lower noise than any individual image.
SynthEyes offers complete control over the tracking process for challenging shots, including an efficient workflow for supervised trackers, combined automated/supervised tracking, offset tracking, incremental solving, rolling-shutter compensation, a hard and soft path locking system, distance constraints for low-perspective shots, and cross-camera constraints for stereo. A solver phase system lets you set up complex solving strategies with a visual node-based approach (not in Intro version). You can set up a coordinate system with tracker constraints, camera constraints, an automated ground-plane-finding tool, by aligning to a mesh, a line-based single-frame alignment system, manually, or with some cool new phase techniques.
SynthEyes is a tracking app; you'll use the other apps you already know to generate the pretty pictures. SynthEyes exports to about 25 different 2-D and 3-D programs. The Sizzle scripting language lets you customize the standard exports, or add your own imports, exports, or tools. You can customize toolbars, color scheme, keyboard mapping, and viewport configurations too.
The Intro version is intended for use by students and hobbyists and has specific limitations compared to the regular 'Pro' version. If these limitations are a concern to you, you should get the Pro version instead!
The Intro version:
*: The shot cache limit corresponds to a Queue Length setting of 200 HD frames. This affects playback performance at full resolution on longer shots, but does not affect the length of shots that can be tracked or tracking and solving accuracy.
*** SynthEyes 1905 Build 1046 released 30 May 2019. *** This replaces the earlier 1905 build 1045 released 10 May. It contains a few bug fixes with no feature changes.
