Andersson Technologies releases SynthEyes 2102

SynthEyes 2102 running in Retina mode on an M1 Mac mini. The update to the 3D tracking software adds support for Apple’s new M1 processors, and for modern high-DPI displays.

Andersson Technologies has released SynthEyes 2102, the latest version of its 3D tracking software.

The workflow- and performance-focused update adds support for Apple’s new M1 processors and current high-DPI monitors, and updates the software’s user interface.

Now supports Apple’s new M1 chips and their Apple Neural Engine co-processors
For Mac users, a key change in the 2102 update will be support for Apple’s new M1 processors, available in current MacBooks and Mac mini systems.

On macOS, the software’s new machine-learning-based features, introduced in last year’s SynthEyes 2004, have been ported to Core ML, and can make use of the M1 chips’ Apple Neural Engine (ANE) co-processor.

The release also makes “extensive use” of code optimised for AVX instructions to improve performance on Windows, Linux and older Intel Macs.

User interface updated to better support high-resolution displays
The update also overhauls SynthEyes’ user interface – you can find a list of changes here – in part, to accommodate modern high-DPI monitors like Apple’s Retina displays.

The software also now supports Hi-DPI displays on Windows “and to a lesser extent Linux”.

Other changes include the option to assign custom 3D meshes to SynthEyes’ 3D Panel and the right-click menus of the 3D and perspective views, and a simplified shot setup dialog.

You can read a full list of workflow changes via the link at the foot of the story.

Pricing and availability
SynthEyes 2102 is available for Windows 7+, RHEL/CentOS 7 Linux and macOS 10.13+.

New licences cost from $299 to $699, depending on whether you buy the Intro or Pro edition of the software, and for which platforms.
