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.

You can add and subtract from the selection set by using the Ctrl key goujou the usual way. If you use this key schedule as a guide to where you should set up your approximate cameras then you will always have enough tracks to fill in the intermediate frames.

When you add a second spring to another vertex the model will start to rotate in the 2D view. Shorter, more sporadic tracks may result in lots of keyframes. Two clicks and the majority of your shots can be matchmoved automatically.

Boujou 4 Quickstart Guide_图文_百度文库

Hey there, So I spent most of my night last night trying to get this simple shot to track to no avail. However, you can now link the locators to the model vertices, which makes setting up your scene far more straightforward.

I’ve used pretty much every major matchmoving program that’s come out over the last 13 years, and one of the great things about boujou is that it tries to exploit processing power and nicely crafted algorithms, and utilizes a large data set to come up with the perfect camera solve.

If you have used the survey points tool in boujou three then you will be familiar with the idea of locator keyframes having to be linked by feature tracks. Camera solving can be broken down into three main stages: VICON uses cookies to make the site simpler. User- Couple solid points on the walls and in the room behind him, ignoring the reflections, to get a scene track as well as lend data to the auto track afterwards Auto- Dense point cloud to get a better track, using the user track to kill non-consistent tracks Camera Solve- Solving the initial camera User 1- Another group of trackers, these are the face tracks for scene organization Object Solve- Solving for the motion of the face group Test Object- Putting in the mushrooms to see if they stick Export- Movie export as well as scene export if you need these files http: Shots with plenty of long, consistent tracks may just have a solve keyframe at the start and the end.


boujou 5 Review: Matchmoving Enters its Maturity

VICON uses cookies to make the site simpler. Skip to main content. There’s always room for improvement with any software tool, and there are a few things I imagine will be incorporated into boujou in the future, but boujou 5 does just about manula I could wish for right now.

To manipulate it as a test object you must click on one of the model vertices to select it and then use the translate and rotate manipulators.

With version 5, boujou has added more manual functionality and the biujou to refine them, making it a more complete package.

This is perfect for users who want to sift through a problem area one frame at a time without having to create a solve for the entire shot. This changes the camera parameters in order to minimize these reprojection errors. Align the model so that it matches the car in the sequence as closely as possible. Fully Functional Graph Editor The Graph Editor enables the user to manually tweak the camera data and, if necessary, resolve.

Vertex alignment Vertex alignment is a method of approximating the position of the camera. Version two gave boujou increased functionality, opening it up to use on a wider range of shots. Free with most all? The Reference Frames feature enables users to import still images taken with any camera and use them to assist in a solve.

Image display controls — these can be found in the Zoom Tool tab of the right sidebar click on the button with a magnifying glass icon — see Appendix 1 for an explanation of the new interface icons. Watch the model during the tracking to check for drift. Target Tracking now can specify a pattern on a single frame as well as tracking multiple patterns simultaneously.


Connect any unconnected vertices to the corresponding locators in the current frame you only need to connect each vertex oncethen go to the next solve keyframe with and repeat the process until you reach the end of the sequence. If you have too few features tracks, or if they are poor quality, then the accuracy of the tracking will be low and the model will appear to drift. I know this isn’t exactly what you asked for but it is possible I can’t just guide you, button by button, but lead you with ideas Top, front and side views can now be displayed to help with lining up objects and structure.

Somehow Boujou created 5 cameras. As before, you need at least 7 locator keyframes on a frame and at least 10 feature tracks joining this frame to the next set of locator keyframes. Export- Movie export as well as scene export if you need these files http: Even a very simple model can be used for face-based tracking. The 3D points used can either be from manual tracks locators and target tracks or from those automatic tracks that have had 3D points generated.

It also warns you that the workspace navigation tools will not behave in the usual way e.

Interpolate Views — this allows you to delete a range of camera views and replace them using a straight line interpolation. When you have finished adding locators display the model again and align it using the vertex align mode.

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