3D camera tracker & match mover for After Effects®


CAMERATRACKER for After Effects® plugin allows you to pull 3D motion tracks and matchmoves without having to leave After Effects. It analyses the source sequence and extracts the original camera's lens and motion parameters, allowing you to composite 2D or 3D elements correctly with reference to the camera used to film the shot.

You can now match camera moves within Adobe® After Effects®' 2.5D environment, opening up new, robust options for the placement of composite elements. Create Fringe / Heroes style 'in scene' titles, insert animated design elements, match-move virtual set extensions, motion-track projection mapping and much more.

This 3D motion tracking technology was previously only available in NUKEX, The Foundry's high-end film compositing tool. You can now do all this in Adobe® After Effects® without exiting your application.


How does CAMERATRACKER compare to CS6?

The Foundry’s CAMERATRACKER enables 3D motion tracks and matchmoves for Adobe® After Effects®, and for those facing complicated projects remains an excellent addition to your After Effects arsenal.

Where Adobe’s onboard 3D Camera Tracker offers ease of use and high automation for a wide range of users, The Foundry’s CAMERATRACKER will continue to offer greater control over complex tasks. CAMERATRACKER continues to be the tool of choice for those needing extra help when facing tricky tracking tasks on complicated projects thanks to its refinement options, advanced 3D feature preview and lens distortion handling.

CAMERATRACKER: Motion tracking in action

In this sequence, Alexander Lehnert of Haus&Gross communications demonstrates 3D camera tracking with CAMERATRACKER inside After Effects®, exporting to Cinema 4D, projection mapping, rendering, reimporting to After Effects® and comping. He also shows the use of KRONOS retiming plug-in to add visual impact to the shot's timing.

"Inevitably, the question will be asked if this is a replacement for The Foundry’s CAMERATRACKER. For many applications, it is. However, The Foundry’s plug-in allows much more control over refining your track, including the ability to remove lens distortion - so it will remain the choice for some industrial-strength tasks."
