Match Mover allows a single video or film scene to be analysed, calculating the position and lens of the camera for extremely accurate export to Maya or other 3D software. This demo was done from some very old and low quality stock footage and hand held consumer grade DV cameras. The purpose of the demo is two fold. First, for many real tracking jobs, if the viewer can see what has been inserted, it is a poor job. Second, shaky footage and old noisy footage are among the hardest cases to track. Inserting something kind of obvious, like a cube that says Digital Magic, is just a bit of fun.
There are certain requirements for a scene to be tracked as well as a few limitations but the efficiency and flexibility of process and software is excellent.
