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.

The workflow described below is the most effective way to use a boujjou to create a camera solve when the model vertices correspond to features in the image. If you have the optimize focal length option switched on then the focal length will also be adjusted to match the model alignment. Create the first mask 2. Reference photos taken on set, on location, or even capturing different sequences during a shot can be used to give more boukou information to a shot than what already exists in camera.

The camera path is basically good but very spiky.

A lot of what has been added into boujou 5, such as the Graph Editor and improved Target Tracker, are features that some of the more target track-driven software already had. Each iteration of boujou has represented a major leap forward, and boujou 5 is no exception. The locators are connected to the survey points and each frame of the sequence that has sufficient locator keyframes will define a camera view.

Target Tracking now can specify a pattern on a single frame as well as tracking multiple patterns simultaneously. 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. This mamual release represents the fulfillment of some of the most frequently requested features from boujou users, including an Automatic Sequential Solver, Reference Frames, a new Target Tracker and a fully functional Graph Editor, and they’ve been addressed quite well.


Camera Solving Process boujou 4 opens up its internal camera solving tools to the user for the first time to give direct control for solving problem shots.

Another useful feature in boujou 5 is Reference Frames, which manyal users to import still images taken with any camera and use them to assist in a solve.

I’d love to actually try that shot on PFTrack but I don’t have it right now: It can only be used when you are in the 3D viewing mode. Camera solving can be broken down into three main stages: Watch the model during the tracking to check for drift. Overall, I’m happy to see the changes noujou boujou 5.

Even a novice learning from tutorials will be able to use the Reference Frames feature, which means that beginning users of boujou 5 will be able to get a lot more out of it than with previous versions. It either worked, or it didn’t. The Graph Editor enables the user to manually tweak the camera data and, if necessary, resolve. It used to be that boujou handled automatic tasks really well, letting you blast through something quickly with results that even manually you’d have a hard time achieving, but that you would have to use a different package for manual controls.

In boujou three you were able to input survey data and use it to improve the 3D structure of your camera solve. Become a Redditor and subscribe to one of thousands of communities. Manipulating the model When you manipulate the model in the 2D view prior to camera solving you are actually moving the camera.

Auto- Dense point cloud to get a better track, using the user track to kill non-consistent tracks. When this button is pressed you will define a selection area from the path of the mouse cursor. When you have finished adding locators display the model again and align it using the vertex align mode. Several solves can co-exist in a project file and copying a solve is a good way of creating a backup of your solve before you start editing it.


When generating meshes it may bujou be useful to filter out those tracks whose 3D position is poorly constrained e. It’s a very simple workflow that adds an enormous amount of additional functionality.

boujou 5 Review: Matchmoving Enters its Maturity

Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. New Target Tracker The Pattern Matching Tracker in boujou has been completely rewritten so it provides a faster workflow.

At this stage you can start using it as a test object. In the past, one of the problems with matchmoving was that you couldn’t find an accurate camera solution bpujou a certain depth of information. There’s always room for improvement with any software tool, and there are boukou few things I imagine will be incorporated into boujou in the future, but boujou 5 does just about everything I could wish for right now.

Structure Generation For each track a 3D point will be computed using the solved camera. Fine-tune the alignment as before.

boujou 5 Review: Matchmoving Enters its Maturity | Animation World Network

Shots with plenty of long, consistent tracks may just have a solve keyframe at the start and the end. Vertex alignment Vertex alignment is a method of approximating the position of the camera. The Pattern Matching Tracker in boujou has been completely rewritten so it provides a faster workflow.

But because boujou approaches matchmoving from a different angle than other solutions, its main focus has been on automated functionality, at which it really excels.

I put little mushrooms, fuck I love the mushrooms, on his face tracks to boujoj how they stick and the effect works.
