SynthEyes™ is a camera tracking (a.k.a. match-moving) and stabilization software application for Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux, offering high performance and a wealth of features at an affordable price. SynthEyes's latest features include "phases" for solver setup, corner tracking, rolling-shutter compensation, survey-shot handler, and a user-interface refresh. Use SynthEyes for animated critter insertion, fixing shaky shots, virtual set extension, 3D stereoscopic production, architectural previews, accident reconstruction, virtual product placement, face and body capture, and more.
- New May 17th: Floating licenses for SynthEyes. We've added a new floating license scheme and manager to accommodate the needs of larger enterprise customers. Pricing. These are not available through the online store, contact sales@... for purchase information.
- April 23rd: Linux version now commercially available through the online store; demo version via the usual demo signup process. The cross-platform version can be installed on Windows, OS X, or Linux subject to our usual simultaneous installation requirements. (press release)
- December 2nd, SynthEyes 1212 Build 1025 released. The oft-requested multiple camera views feature is here, a boon for everyone doing stereo work. It took a bit to work out the details of how it should behave and how to make that happen, but the result is simple and efficient for you... watch the new stereo tutorial. As always, see the customer-only recent change list for full details. And yes, we're relentless about making SynthEyes better and better. (press release)
- New Tutorials. New tutorials are being released periodically on our SynthEyesHQ youtube channel. Check in on the upgraded tutorials page to see the latest ones.
- Rolling Shutter White Paper. This paper describes the rolling shutter compensation system and workflow for SynthEyes 1208+. Suitable for technical users and also intended for renderer developers who need to add rolling shutter simulation capabilities to their renderers!
- Amazing Site License Promotion for Schools We have a great offer for schools: $495 for a one-year site license.
- November 16th, SynthEyes 1211 Build 1024 released. New Disk Cache system, especially for RAID/SSD machines. Important but subtle bugfix for stereo shots.
- November 1st, SynthEyes 1211 Build 1023 released. New Community Translation Project system, major upgrades for reading 'movie' files, improved "Add Many Trackers," bug fixes.
- September 28th, SynthEyes 1209 Build 1021 released. Bug fixes plus a new Python Scripting capability available at extra cost to enterprise customers (minimum license count applies). Earlier builds 1020 and 1001 brought a new builtin Matrix object, negative rolling shutter, lidar file reading, linearize phase to straighten dolly tracks.
- SynthEyes 1208. 1208 introduced not only new technical features, but a switch to a two-track fast-release system that eliminates the distinction between minor dot releases and major (paid) releases (SynthEyes 2011 was released over two years ago). With the new approach, we'll be able to bring you more big new features sooner. We're eliminating the 32-/64bit distinction, introducing Intro and Pro versions instead, plus a new cross-platform option. Follow the links to read about details of the transition to 1208+ (important!), the business changes, new technical features in 1208+, and the press release. Or, jump to the demo version.
- Freelance Jobs? We periodically get requests for freelance trackers. If you are interested in taking on tracking projects, please follow our Twitter account SynthEyesHQ. If you need a freelance tracker, please post in the Jobs section of the forum, then contact sales by email so we can tweet about it.
