SynthEyes INTENSE – knowledge for Camera Tracking
made during my free time. It is non-profit.
If you enjoy watching it, you may donate a small amount of money to help me keep the non-profit tutorials running.
In this intense 3D Tracking Tutorial I take you through syntheyes powerful Camera Tracking features.

********************************** WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
–1.–We will start by quickly discussing the principles behind camera tracking – Photogrammerty – to make you familar with matchmoving
–2.–The following lessons will be spent on syntheyes User Interface and on Workflow optimization.
–3.–Jumping right into Target Tracking we will discuss the matchmovers decision on wheather a feature is good to track or not, followed by an intense lesson on supervised Target Tracking with SynthEyes 2008 target functionalitys and the Graph Editor.
–4.–We will automize the tracking and let SynthEyes find optional good features – and of course doing an auto-cleanup.
–5.–Discussing fine-tuning, we will take a look at the variety of ways, syntheyes lets us optimize our camerapath smoothness and reduce pixel error.
–6.–Of course we will also go into previsualizing the track quality and with some **Extra Lessons** we will discuss shot-stabilization and lens-distortion.

Notice that in these tutorials I am working on a TUTORIAL BASE LEVEL, means while recording I WILL NOT GO FOR THE PERFECT RESULTS as I would when doing this for production.
Don’t judge my bad english, I am german and this is my first time recording a ~150 minutes LIVE tutorial.
