Vicon boujou

Trailblazing and award winning match-moving software for VFX

Vicon boujou is matchmoving software that enables you to add computer generated effects seamlessly into your film or video footage.

boujou 5 allows you to solve complex shots and to step in and work directly with the data. It has a unique way of solving which radically accelerates your results, solving more shots in less time.

Please Note: Vicon will provide support to any questions regarding boujou, but there will be no further updates or point releases.

 

Take the headache out of matchmoving. Two clicks and the majority of your shots can be matchmoved automatically. No manual tracking required, saving you time and resources.

boujou 5 works through a frame by frame comparison, enabling the user to intervene as needed and making the entire process significantly faster than reviewing the entire shot before delivering a solve.

boujou 5 Features

Automatic sequential solver

Previous versions of boujou took the entire shot into account before delivering a solve. boujou 5 looks at a single frame at a time, enabling the user to intervene as needed and making the entire process significantly faster.

Reference frames

The Reference Frames feature enables users to import still images taken with any camera and use them to assist in a solve.

Fully functional graph editor

The Graph Editor enables the user to manually tweak the camera data and, if necessary, resolve. boujou 5 also provides the ability to lock valid sections of solve data or sections known to be correct. Those sections can then be used to improve other areas.

Target tracker

The Pattern Matching Tracker in boujou has been completely rewritten so it provides a faster workflow. Target Tracking now can specify a pattern on a single frame as well as tracking multiple patterns simultaneously.

Please Note: Vicon will provide support to any questions regarding boujou, but there will be no further updates or point releases.
