Later we will export these shots with multiple cameras to 3DS MAX and keep it all in real world units to match purchased or modeled to real sizes. We will also take a look the new distortion / undistortion workflow in the app as well as examine how to use LIDAR scans in SynthEyes and constrain tracking points to the point could.
Quite a few new very useful features where included in SynthEyes in the last versions, and the “Phases” is anptjer invaluable tool we are going to be using along the course.
Class 1Tracking of camera along a road with surveyed information, alignment and scaling to real world coordinates.
Class 2Tracking of two moving cameras Part 1. With survey information and 2 static cameras, different resolutions and different aspect ratios, one is a panorama. Crosslink of all the cameras.
Class 3Tracking of two moving cameras Part 2.
Class 4New undistortion / distortion with After Effects.
Class 5Importing of all these cameras, maintaining real size measurements, aligning with a road built based on the survey data. Some techniques in MAX / Final render to match lighting, catch shadows, reflections, etc.
Class 6Using 3D objects to assist tracking, having geometries to constraint the trackers makes things easier.
Class 7LIDAR recommendations and learning new ways to navigate the software, getting comfortable with perspective navigation is a must to deal with huge sets.
Class 8LIDAR Tracking two shots, a simple one and one that is pretty complicated.
Class 9LIDAR finishing shots, using shadow catchers with test objects given our ground is lower than zero.
Class 10Completing the difficult track from the previous lesson.
