Oxford, UK - Vicon, developer of motion capture and image understanding systems, for the Entertainment, Life Science and Engineering industries, announced the availability of boujou 5, the latest version of its matchmoving software.
Some new features include:
- New Automatic Sequential Solver. Previous versions of boujou took the entire shot into account before delivering a solve. Now, it can look at a single frame at a time, which not only enables the user to intervene, it
can make the entire process much faster
- A fully functional Graph Editor, which lets the user manually adjust the camera data and, if necessary, resolve. boujou 5 also provides the ability to lock valid sections of solve data or sections which are known to be correct, which animators can then use to improve other areas of the shot
- The Reference Frames feature allows users to import still images taken with any camera and use them to assist in a solve
Customers can purchase boujou 5 beginning 31 August 2009. The software installer will be available to download from the 7 September 2009.
