Voodoo is a camera tracking software, I’m interested in seeing what professional programs people use.
Hi there I hope I can help you out. Of course blender is slowly getting it’s own tracker programmed now, but just in case you need a good stable tracker for the job right now and don’t have $10,000 to throw away on boujour then you might consider Syntheyes, which is a great competitor for the high end apps, as it is used frequently by industry professionals all the time. I like it because Russ Andersson who is the head of the project personally helps out his customers and provides personal support. Rare thing these days.
Then there is PF hoe which is the baby brother of the PF track high end software. It is a simple yet powerful program like syntheyes, just without the bells and whistles that syntheyes, PFTrack or Boujour have.
The cost is very affordable and available in two flavors, standard $99 and pro $199
I hope that helps. There are some other trackers out there, but if you are wanting to do commercial work with it, and need a good reliable track, then these are your best bet by far.
If you don’t need a commercial grade software, then PFTracks predecessor should be considered. Icarus is it’s name and there is only one place I know where this software can still be downloaded for personal educational use only, and that is at Colin Levy’s website, complete with tutorials on how to use it within blender.
I am not sure though if there are plugins to get it to work with blender 2.58 though… do a search and it may show something.
