boujou 4.1 is the latest point release of the Emmy award-winning, industry-standard camera and object tracking solution.
Containing the powerful features of boujou 4, the same fast and robust automatic tracking coupled with new and enhanced features, boujou 4.1 enables you to exploit everything in the shot.
boujou 4.1 major new enhancements include new extensive PDF format documentation, Windows Vista compatibility, Mac Universal Binary version plus a brand new GUI.
All the familiar features from boujou 4 such as.....
FASTER, BETTER CAMERA SOLVES
An improved solver, more feedback and more tools enable you to exploit everything in the shot. Solve from an approximate camera path - boujou 4 can improve an existing camera path by filling in the gaps or by optimizing the camera position.
MODEL-BASED CAMERA AND OBJECT TRACKING
Object tracking - if you don't have much parallax in a shot it can be difficult to get a good camera solve. boujou 4 enables you to import 3D objects. By importing 3D objects camera solves can then be created based on the correspondence between feature tracks and faces of a polygon mesh.
Survey points - Import survey information in the form of a 3D mesh to improve the accuracy of a 3D solve.
Eyeballing - Very occasionally boujou can't get the camera position correct. boujou 4 enables you to import a 3D object to eyeball the approximate camera positions on certain frames. boujou can then work out the camera positions for the whole shot.
IMPORT AND EXPORT 3D MESHES
Import your test objects to assess the quality of your shots. Export a 3D mesh of the 3D points calculated in boujou enabling you to create shadow casting objects or 3D terrain.
SCRIPTING AND EXTENDED COMMAND SET
Access boujou's core functionality with embedded scripting. Create your own import and export formats.
Control the number of 3D points generated by boujou. Reduce the number of 3D points so that only the most accurate are exported. Export more 3D points to make a more detailed mesh.
boujou 4's interface has been re-designed for a much smoother workflow.
