SynthEyes 1212 adds multiple camera views

Andersson Technologies has released SynthEyes 1212, the latest update to its affordable camera-tracking software, adding support for multiple camera views.

(Actually, the update was released last week, but had passed us by until it popped up on MaxUnderground.)

Although the developer has been pumping out an update roughly every month of late, this looks to be a pretty significant one: as well as multi-camera support – which will obviously be of interest to anyone using SynthEyes for stereoscopic work – SynthEyes 1212 includes new features for forcibly straightening dolly moves, checking camera paths, and importing Lidar data.

Disk caching has also been improved, enabling large stereo shots to be brought over a studio’s network onto a faster local drive. According to the news release: “Both stereo images can be examined and tracked at once, and both sets of trackers monitored simultaneously with SynthEyes’s exclusive SimulTrack windows.”

SynthEyes 1212 is available now for Windows and OS X. The regular Pro edition of the software costs $599, and a cross-platform version, $699. An Intro version of the software, which lacks stereo support, costs $399.
