Downloaded fine (its not that big so slow download didnt bother me), ...only downer was I installed it and suddenly Shake (4.1 on Mac) didn't want to run (would crash out on booting, some memory addressing error from what I could see in terminal), have had to manually uninstall it (it lurks inside the shake application contents on the Mac). Oh well, might have a look on the forums for a solution later on.

I got the free copy of pfmatch, but have yet to install it. What are the main differences between pftrack and pfmatch? Thanks.

I couldn’t find much info on that online. About the only thing I could find is that PFmatch is limited to HD and if you need film resolutions you need PFtrack. But is that it?

It is just limited to tracking only and is based on Pftrack 3.0. So no stereo and none of the image editing features like object removal, image modeler, etc....

Thanks. But in terms of matchmoving , camera match and solving its all there? Can you export to other comp applications too?
I thought since it is a shake plug-in it would be limited to using it inside shake only somehow.
