3D Camera Tracking
Easy to use, accurate, fast and ahead of the curve. PFTrack’s matchmove core gets your job done with class-leading results.
Spherical Tracking Toolset
Your fast track to creating incredible 360° content for VFX, VR, games and more. This toolset comprises of three brand new nodes: Spherical Track, Spherical Orient and Spherical Render.
The Spherical Track Node – A fast, streamlined solution for tracking and solving the full equirectangular image from 360° cameras. The node tracks six cameras at once from the equirectangular panorama, all aligned and contained in the same scene, which is then passed downstream through the node tree, opening up the full potential of PFTrack’s renowned feature set.
The Spherical Orient Node – Stabilise the camera rotation of your spherical track, as well as re-orient your panorama and focus your front view on animatable look-at points.
The Spherical Render Node – Finally render your new equirectangular panorama, which used alongside tracking data from the six cameras, offers VFX artists a fully equipped spherical toolset for 360° content creation at their fingertips.
Double The Technology, Galactic Results
The fusion of PFTrack and PFDepth. Recreate accurate world space and take your VFX pipeline to new dimensions. Now integrated with PFTrack.
Dimensionalization professionals turn to PFDepth for one reason, to work within a true 3D world space using real-world camera models. This seemingly simple concept is what allows PFDepth to create extremely accurate, per-pixel 2D to 3D conversion, depth maps for deep compositing and fix problems with a stereo image pair that may have happened back when the scene was originally shot. The result is total creative control, without the guesswork.
And with a state-of-the-art review environment that checks for comfort violations prior to rendering, PFDepth ensures breathtaking 3D, without the headaches.
Key PFDepth Features Include
2D to 3D Conversion
Automated Z-depth tools that make dimensionalization as easy as x,y,z and a QA toolset that guarantees correct results.
Our renowned camera tracking technologies guarantee absolute precision, even if your camera rig doesn’t.
Deep Compositing technologies ensure PFDepth fits your pipeline where you choose.
