Andersson Technologies ships SynthEyes 1605
Andersson Technologies has released SynthEyes 1605, the latest update to its 3D tracking software, adding a set of workflows for processing 360-degree video for virtual reality experiences.
A complete end-to-end workflow for handling 360-degree video
According to Andersson Technologies, the update provides workflows for stabilising, tracking and solving 360-degree shots, then inserting 3D objects rendered in standard 3D software.
The workflow includes the option to generate a linear perspective view following each inserted mesh, and to convert linear imagery back to 360-degree video.
You can see the process in detail in a two-hour set of video tutorials on the SynthEyes YouTube channel.
New general tracking features and updates to the Geometric Hierarchy tracking tools
The release also adds a number of more general features, including updates to the GeOH toolset for tracking entire hierarchies of moving parts introduced in SynthEyes 1508 last year.
SynthEyes also now offers separate pan/tilt/roll channels and keying for the camera and moving object’s seed and solve tracks, making it easier to hand animate rotations over 360 degrees.
You can read a list of the other key features in the online release notes.

SynthEyes 1605 is available now for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. New licences cost from $299 to $699, depending on whether you buy the Intro or Pro edition of the software, and for which platforms.
