Vicon - boujou 5 - Upgrade from previous versions
boujou 5.0 is the latest generation of Vicon’s award-winning camera-tracking / matchmoving software, that enables you to add computer generated effects seamlessly into your film or video footage. It provides fully automated 3D camera tracking and calibration from film and video material. In most cases no prior information about the camera or material is required, and no skilled user intervention is needed to derive the 3D information. boujou 5 takes the headache out of matchmoving. Two clicks and the majority of your shots can be matchmoved automatically. No manual tracking required, saving you time and resources.
boujou makes it easier to add 3D objects to live camera footage in your 3D animation package by creating a virtual camera that matches the physical one that took the shot. It does this by automatically identifying features in the scene over the entire length of the shot. These features are automatically linked together into a large number of tracks. boujou then uses state-of-the-art techniques to solve the highly complex 3D mathematics in order to work out the camera parameters for each frame of the shot.
