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.

boujou Matchmove Software – Win (x86) | VICON

Everything had to be done by hand in key-frame animation, or with laborious point-based camera tracking. Masks with holes Orthographic views. The Reference Frames feature enables users to import still images taken with any camera and use them to assist in a solve. Bojjou you add a second spring to another vertex the model will start to rotate in the 2D view.

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

This will calculate the solve key schedule. The Optimize radial lens distortion and Optimize camera path smoothness options can be selected when running an adjust solve the radial option will automatically evaluate the value of lens distortion in your shot. It has a unique way of solving which radically accelerates your results, maanual more shots in less boijou.

Each iteration of boujou has represented a major leap forward, and boujou 5 is no exception. Copy Solve — creates a copy of the current active solve.

It also warns you that the workspace navigation tools will not behave in the usual way e. When boujou was first introduced init provided a completely different approach to motion tracking.

If you have too few features tracks, or if they are poor bouou, then the accuracy of the tracking will be low and the model will appear to drift. The Graph Editor enables the user to manually tweak the camera data and, if necessary, resolve.

This latest mahual 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 majual been addressed quite well. The connections that you make in one frame can be used to automatically generate views in other frames.


If you export the camera at this stage then it will line up with the OBJ in your 3D animation software. Default View from Known 3D — creates a new camera view based on the coordinate frame of the imported model. It is now possible to bring in your survey data as an OBJ model and then connect the vertices interactively. Multiple meshes can be created and exported. Somehow Boujou created 5 cameras.

Select the first mask and choose Manage Holes from the right-click menu The Subtract a Bouiou dialog will appear. Two clicks and the majority manua your shots can be matchmoved automatically. But the Reference Frames feature changes that, creating a simple way to import data for an accurate solve.


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. When it worked, it worked well, and when it didn’t, it was often easier to move to a manual solution.

Camera solving can be broken down into three main stages: Camera views will be initialized on the solve keyframes, giving a guide to the most effective frames to align the camera on. This is exactly the same as the survey data tool in boujou three. The interface has also been refined in boujou 5. When boujou calculates a camera solution it will create views at the keyframes and then fill in the gaps. Find out more about cookies. Previous versions of boujou took the entire shot into account before delivering a solve.

Regenerate View — recreate the view on the current frame using the existing 3D structure. Watch the model during the tracking to check for drift. You can also use the solve key schedule to tell you the best frames for adding locator keyframes on, which takes a lot of the guesswork out manua, using survey data.


Connect any unconnected vertices to the corresponding locators in the current frame you only need to connect each vertex oncethen nanual to the next solve keyframe with and repeat bouou process until you reach the end of the sequence.

VICON uses cookies to make the site simpler. Vertex alignment is a method of approximating the position of the camera. You can align the model using the Fly Align method using the workspace navigation toolsor the object manipulators, or the Boumou Drag method. As a test object As survey data To help with the approximate positioning of the camera For face-based object tracking Objects can only help the camera tracking if there are enough feature tracks to link the object to the image.

These corrections will appear as spikes in the camera motion and will make the model appear to jump when you play through the shot. If bouju model vertices do not correspond to vertices in the image then you can use facebased tracking.

boujou 5 Review: Matchmoving Enters its Maturity

Unfortunately I can’t be much help. Building on its industry leading automatic toolset boujou software, boujou 5 allows you to solve complex shots even faster and to step in and work directly with the data. Make sure that you have got the correct solve selected when you use the workspace views. In boujou 5, the Target Tracker has been completely rewritten so it provides a much faster workflow, and instead of tracking one point at a time, users can now specify a pattern on a single frame as well as tracking multiple patterns simultaneously.

When generating meshes it may also be useful to filter out those tracks whose 3D position is manuall constrained e.
