The SynthEyes Tracking for Production demo, the Gnomon workshop's guide to using SynthEyes in professional projects. The new update 2007 adds new camera RAW file readers to the 3D tracking software.
Andersson Technologies released SynthEyes 2007, the latest version of its 3D tracking software, and added new file readers for ARRIRAW and Blackmagic RAW footage.
The update also improves half-precision conversion to floating point format across the software, especially for ARRI or OpenEXR files, and provides support for LIDAR point clouds in PTS and XYZ format.
New machine learning-based functions are now carried out on the CPU by default
In addition, the software now uses the CPU-only version of the Tensorflow library by default, which is required for the new machine learning-based features that were added in SynthEyes 2004 earlier this year.
The change is intended to reduce the size of the SynthEyes installer. However, users with Nvidia GPUs can download optional overlays so that they can use the GPU version of the library.
The new neural networks are to automatically identify tracking functions in source material as well as X-tracking markings in green screen film material and crossing points in lens grids.
Pricing and availability
SynthEyes 2007 is available for Windows 7+, RHEL / CentOS 7 Linux and Mac OS X 10.9+.
New licenses cost between $ 299 and $ 699, depending on whether you buy the intro or pro edition of the software and for which platforms.
