The Pixel Farm Offers PFMatch Free for Shake Users

Windsor, UK - For a short period of time, The Pixel Farm are offering all Shake users the opportunity to own a permanent PFMatch license free. PFMatch has recently been discontinued. Much of the product philosophy of PFMatch has been re-introduced with a fresh approach focused on improved workflow and closer integration with third-party applications.
Until the end of August, you can register to receive a free license here: <>. After which, PFMatch will no longer be available.

PFMatch 2.1 for Apple's Shake 4.1 incorporates technology from the market leading tracking and analysis system PFTrack. PFMatch provides Shake users with a fully integrated 3D camera tracking environment to complement Shake's 3D environment.

The simple user experience is in contrast to the complex underlying analysis system that provides extremely accurate camera data on any type of moving image, solving all types of camera motion for both fixed and variable focal lengths. PFMatch for Shake uses the host program's own image editing, 2D tracking, and masking tools to direct the tracking algorithms.

PFMatch slots into the Shake workflow without the need to leave the application. The track data is passed straight to the Shake MultiPlane node, and requires no saving or exporting of data. As you are working in the tree, there is no duplication of footage required, radically reducing facility storage requirements.

Technical support for PFMatch is not included in this offer. In the very near future we will be launching a new website and a new forum. We will let you know when its ready and you will be welcome to post your questions on The Pixel Farm forum and benefit from the experience of other PFMatch users.

The transfer of your free PFMatch license is not permitted.

The PFMatch license that you receive will be a node locked license, which means that it is registered to a single machine and will work on that machine only.
