This book provides step-by-step instructions on performing specific tasks using boujou. This book describes the features and functionality available in boujou . When it worked, it worked well, and when it didn’t, it was often easier to move to a manual solution. As the versions have progressed, boujou. Throughout this boujou tutorial, we’ll take our first steps into the program. Software required: Boujou 5, Maya , NUKE 7.

The interface has also been refined in boujou 5. Boyjou, front and side views can now be displayed to help with lining up objects and structure.

Basically, you shoot a bunch of still pictures from different angles during a shoot, and if you run into a situation where you don’t have enough camera data, you can add the information from the still images and come up with a solve. The Optimize boujku lens distortion and Optimize camera path smoothness options can be selected when running an adjust solve the radial option will automatically evaluate the value of lens distortion in your shot. Copy View — copies a view from a specified frame to the current frame.

You can also use the solve key schedule to tell you the best frames for adding locator keyframes on, which takes a boujoh of the guesswork out of using survey data.

This will give you the best set of frames for adding locators on based on the number of feature manuap connecting them, and will also create default camera views on these frames. It may not be clear which of the model-based tracking methods to use.

Vertex alignment is a method of approximating the position of the camera. When boujou calculates a camera solution it will create views at the keyframes and then fill in the gaps. In the past, one of the problems with matchmoving was that you couldn’t find an accurate camera solution without a certain depth of information. In boujou three you were able to input survey data and use it to improve the 3D structure of your camera solve. Before boujou, matchmoving was an expensive and highly skilled process, adding significantly to post-production costs.

An approximate camera path can be used as the starting point for a more accurate solution. Building on its industry leading automatic toolset boujou software, boujou 5 allows you to solve complex shots even faster and to step in and work directly with the data.


Align the model so that it matches the car in the sequence as closely as possible. Build a system Contact Us Book a call.

When boujou calculated the key schedule it made sure that there would be enough feature tracks linking each pair of keyframes to allow it to work out how the camera moved between them. You should see the reprojection errors increase as you fly the camera away from its starting position. Note that the model is no longer aligned to the solution and can now be used as a test object. Multiple meshes can be exported.

Previous versions of boujou took the entire shot into account before delivering a solve. This is because you connected the vertices of the model to the locators and the model is now always linked to the 3D predictions by the locators.

I have a shot of myself with some tracking markers on my face, here’s what I tried: Reference photos taken on set, on location, or even capturing different sequences during a shot can be used to give more spatial information to a shot than what already exists in camera.

If the model starts to drift then stop the tracking by clicking on the Cancel button in the status bar below the main image window. Face-based tracking Face-based tracking links the feature tracks and the polygon faces in the model to calculate the camera motion.

The second mask will be extracted from the first. For more information about the embedded scripting contact 2d3support 2d3. Developed for film and television post and VFX facilities, boujou has long been the industry standard for matchmoving, allowing users to add computer-generated effects seamlessly into film or video footage. Vicon recently released boujou 5, with a host of new features and improved functionality that will help the software continue to earn its reputation as the industry’s leading matchmoving solution.

Fully Functional Graph Editor The Graph Editor enables the user to manually tweak the camera data and, if necessary, resolve. Drift will often be a problem with his tracking method so you should look on it as a way of getting an approximate camera path that you can subsequently optimize. Emmy Award-Winning Matchmoving software manal enables you to add computer generated effects seamlessly into your film or video footage. Initialize solve — set the focal length to 23mm Once the model has been imported you can initialize the solve key schedule.

Shots with plenty of long, consistent boujo may just have a solve keyframe at the start and the end. The processor must support SSE2 instructions.



I would really like to get the scene files so I can export a mesh to Cinema4D and get to work but I’ll also try to recreate what you did whenever I get access to PFTrackI really want to be able to solve that kind of shot on my own. The Pattern Matching Tracker in boujou has been completely rewritten so it provides a faster workflow.

The 3D points used can either be from manual tracks locators and target tracks or mannual those automatic tracks that have had 3D points generated.

Delete View — deletes a single frame from the current solve. The Advanced solve refinement section allows you to optimize the camera path smoothness or correct for radial lens distortion as part of the solving process.

With version 5, boujou has added more manual functionality and the controls to bouuou them, making it a more complete package. You can align the model using the Fly Align method using the workspace navigation toolsor the object manipulators, or the Vertex Drag method.

Matchmoving software that enables you to add computer generated effects seamlessly into your film or video footage.

The Graph Editor enables the user to manually tweak the camera data and, if necessary, resolve. Typing in the coordinates and linking them to locators was a time-consuming process and it was easy to make mistakes. When it has finished make sure that you turn on the radial overlay on before viewing the result in the 2D view.

Tick the Create User Solve checkbox. If anyone could be of any help that would be amazing, I really need to track this shot and I can’t find what’s happening with Boujou.

Previous versions of boujou took the entire shot into account before delivering a solve.

The key schedule that boujou usually calculates before camera solving will create a set of camera keyframes that is linked by a minimum number of feature tracks. Default View from Known 3D — creates a new camera view based on the coordinate frame of the imported model. It is now possible to bring in your survey data as an OBJ model and then connect the vertices interactively.
