Vicon boujou 5 - featured

Emmy Award-Winning Matchmoving software that enables you to add computer generated effects seamlessly into your film or video footage.

Building on its industry leading automatic toolset boujou software, boujou 5 allows you to solve complex shots even faster and to step in and work directly with the data. boujou 5 has a unique way of solving which radically accelerates the way you work, you can now solve even more shots in less time. boujou 5 takes 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.


New 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.

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.

Reference Frames

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

New 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.

Over - All thought

The well known professional 3D Camera Tracker Boujou is one of the top of the line 3d trackers in the Film making world. Its well known for being easy to use and hated by Indy / no budget film makers for the price tag. This Program is a fantastic Match mover for what it is but lacks some features that its cheaper competitor PFtrack has of object tracking. Now although you can do Object tracking though using masks but the process just doesn't feel as smooth as it would in PFtrack. Plus unless you have a rich uncle or have a well paid job this may not be the program for you as of the Price Being 10K!!!!! and would downgrade to something like PFtrack or PFMatchit. Now I get the fact that its a top of the line Tracker but for ten grade you should be getting a lot more out of it, for eg like mentioned earlier, object tracking. Other features it lacks is the power to track Consumer level cameras (not including phone footage), Ie for those who don't have the money to purchase a RED EPIC or SCARLET and can only afford a handycam, now with a program being 10K you would expect it to be able to give a decent track. Now I do get that most people by this time would have a higher level Camera when in the process of purchasing this software, but for those who are stuck with lower cameras i do expect a little more, Now before all the haters hate on me I do get that it's not able to track the worst of footage but give it an ok track, but If your paying 10k for something like this i would expect the level to be a little higher for those lower camera users. Over all i Love Boujou as its a great program to use, even though it lacks features and has numerous bugs, its a great piece of software, but as with anything, not every body like the same so choice might be different. But i love it and will continue to work with it over the years.

Would you recommend this product to a colleague? Maybe
