This book provides step-by-step instructions on performing specific tasks using boujou. This book describes the features and functionality available in boujou . When it worked, it worked well, and when it didn’t, it was often easier to move to a manual solution. As the versions have progressed, boujou. Throughout this boujou tutorial, we’ll take our first steps into the program. Software required: Boujou 5, Maya , NUKE 7.

It can only be used when you are in the 3D viewing mode. You can now edit individual frames in a camera solution or create the framework of a solve by editing the camera position manually.

Camera solving can be broken down into three main stages: New Target Tracker The Pattern Matching Tracker in boujou has been completely rewritten so it provides a faster workflow.

I know this isn’t exactly what you asked for but it is mnaual I can’t just guide you, button by button, but maunal you with ideas If anyone could be of any help that would be amazing, I really need to track this shot and I can’t find what’s happening with Boujou. The processor must support Bojou instructions.

Export- Movie export as well as scene export if you need these files http: Find out more about cookies. As a test object As survey data To help with the approximate positioning of the camera For face-based object tracking Objects can only help the camera tracking if there are enough feature tracks to link the object to the image. Top, front and side views can now be displayed to help with lining up objects and structure. If you press this button again you will boujoy lasso selection and return to the usual rectangular selection mode.

Educational license options are available. This will align the model based on the survey point connections that you have already made, saving you the job of doing it yourself. The mesh bkujou generated by projecting selected 3D points into 2D and then creating connectivity information in 2D which will then be used to mesh manula 3D structure. Shorter, more sporadic tracks may result in lots of keyframes. When this button is pressed you will define a selection area from the path of the mouse cursor.


mannual Select the first mask and choose Manage Holes from the right-click menu The Subtract a Mask dialog will appear. Reprojection Error To visualize the reprojection error, open a camera tracked project and make the following changes to a 2D view window 1.

Before boujou does any camera tracking it examines the feature tracks and breaks up the shot into sections which are linked by a certain number of tracks. This is exactly the same as the survey data tool in boujou three.

The Graph Editor enables the user to manually tweak the camera data and, if necessary, resolve. You can now bouhou the model as a test object. Target Tracking now can specify a pattern on a single frame as well as tracking multiple patterns simultaneously.

Click on the Bojuou Backwards button. Those sections can then be used to improve other areas. Make sure that your locator keyframes are on the same frames as the solve keyframes.

To manipulate it as a test object you must click on one of the model vertices to select it and then use the translate and rotate manipulators.

Those sections can mnaual be used to improve other areas. A lot of what has been added into boujou 5, such as the Graph Editor and improved Target Tracker, are features that some of the more target track-driven software already had.

You should be able to see the object tracking all the way to the end of the shot. It’s a very simple workflow that adds an enormous amount of additional functionality. Vertex alignment is a method of approximating the position of the camera. The 3D Tasks menu gives you three different projection methods: Reference photos taken on set, on location, or even capturing different sequences during a shot can be used to give more spatial information to a shot than what already exists in camera.


These new tools require a greater level of understanding of the inner workings of boujou and this document attempts to explain some of the new concepts and mechanisms. Even a very simple model can be used for face-based tracking.

The Automatic Sequential Solver now available in boujou is a huge time-saver. Structure Generation For each track a 3D point will be computed using the solved camera. Mqnual the key schedule is very sparse then certain sections of the shot may have very few 3D predictions, even though they seem to lots of feature tracks.

You can align the model with using the Fly Align method using the workspace navigation toolsor the object manipulators, or manul Vertex Drag method. Survey data To use a model as survey data you will need to have locators or target tracks in your scene to identify the features that you have survey data for, and you will need to have feature tracks linking the keyframes.

This is because you connected the vertices of the model to the locators and the model is now always boijou to the 3D predictions by the locators.

The Pattern Matching Tracker in boujou has been completely rewritten so it provides a faster workflow.


Go to the first solved frame this should be on the first frame of the sequence. When you have finished adding locators display the model again and align it using the vertex align mode.

Try to add at least 20 locators. The interface has also been refined in boujou 5.
