FXhome's CamTrackAR iOS app creates camera tracking data in realtime

5

FXhome’s CamTrackAR iOS app leverages Apple’s ARkit to create real-time tracking data while filming on the iPhone.

The free version of this app along with FXhome’s Hitfilm Express (which is also free) can export this tracking data to Blender for free. Having the tracking data immediately captured and available alongside the footage speeds up the compositing workflow greatly, by bypassing the time-consuming stage of camera tracking and solving in post-production.

This app can also be used to generate accurate handheld camera movement to be used in a fully CG scene.

CamTrackAR is currently only available on iOS, but FXhome says that they are working on an Android version.

  1. Really cool! I've been trying it and getting shaky results in blender. I have a SE 1, so could that be the problem? Any tips for recording better? Thanks!

    • AB3D I don't know, man... I've been getting pretty crappy results, too. Every time I think I've found a faster, more accurate solution to 3D camera solves, I always end up disappointed. There may not ever really be an easy/non-grinding way of getting an accurate camera track.
