LOL, there was one for free before it got used for the PFHoe, PFTrack. Icarus?

Nothing that plugins in, the matchmoving software you do externally and import the resultants.

PFHoe is $90 and will do DV quality (800x600 or so). SynthEyes is the closest consumer hobby level price range at about $365 or so. Then you're into Matchmover from RealViz or Boujou Bullet which are in the $2g range.

Have a look at this one, it's free for non-commercial work:


No export for C4d only 3D Studio Max, Softimage, Maya or Blender. Don't know if they can be converted.

They are working on LW export (and a mac version) so it might be worth a bookmark for the future.

Never tried it myself. I'm on a mac and ended up buying SynthEyes.
