HELP FOR FUTURE CHALLENGE: Camera Tracking

I am in the process of filming some footage for the next FXwars challenge and I need help
doing some camera tracking of the shots...
I need the scene data to be released in multiple formats (Maya, Lightwave, Max,C4D)
Any help would be appreciated.

I'm no master but I need practice there too. I'll take a stab at a shot and see what I can do.
 
  11 November 2008
sure

im no master either, but i have a little experience on tracking, i can give it a try if you want.

if you track it in boujou or similar tracking programs, you can export the camera and data for most software applications.

Quite simple really.

I can run it through Boujou for you if you like, as Jonathan mentioned it can export camera data to just about any aplication.

Would it only be camera tracking or would there also be ojects to track? Are you using any trackers in the scene? If so would you also want them removed?

I also second the request for info for the next challenge.

hi Roberto, i could help doing the C4d files.
I would use the Voodoo Tracker and give the Links to, How Import a Voodoo textfile" in C4d from Eggtion http://www.eggtion.net/

@BusterHymen, can Boujou export a C4d compatible file?

The name of the challenge I have in mind is...


"The Hallway"

I been recording some spooky hallways with my hd camera.

The idea is to composite something HORRIBLE that is just around the corner...

IF this challenge works, we might do more comp challenges in the future..

Challenges like:
  • The Stadium... (virtual sets)
  • The Shootout...( Gun fire elements, Cg Destruction ,CG Blood and maybe a RayGun.)
  • FXWARS: Four Seasons..

Roberto, that sounds really cool. Just a thought, but you could have a "mini" (one or two week maximum) camera solve challege to ensure you get a good solve. I would love to get a crack at it.

rasher73, Boujou can export to just about anything Maya, Max, Houdini, LW, C4D, XSI, ect.

To be honest I mostly work in Max so that is the only format that I am used to, but I imagine the only diverences would be the Axis orientation.

yeh the one track solve can be exported to all software programs BusterHymen mentioned. Just gotta get a good track which wont be too hard. You wont need markers really, unless its dark....
