Camera tracking data record

Studio Operators

 

With the UE version, what way would you would recommending capturing the Aximmetry Camera Transform data during a take, so that it can be used in post production for re-rendering possible changes/finessing of the UE plate as it was during the shoot?

Unfortunately currently there's no easy way to do that, in the future we'll add the necessary tools.

I've just come across this thread and I'm curious if there has or will soon be an update to this. This would be essential in order to add graphics in after the fact.

I can see being able to record the Vive data separately but I'm not sure how you would then input this back into Aximmetry or keep it in sync with recorded video.

Following :) That's my question too - will it be necessary to use a "professional" tracking solution with timecode to record the tracking data and sync it with the video? Or is possible that Aximmetry uses "its own" timecode, which will be recorded simultaneously to the tracking data and video stream?

Hi,

It will be possible to record with internal time code as well (this will be the main usage scenario).

That's great news. I imagine there will be more information closer the time.


Do you have a public roadmap for these kind of features?

I would need that feature as well, because not all productions are live productions. Most of them are for recording and usage in post-production, I think. That is essential, because usualy the customers have requests for changes.

Yes! The ability to export tracked camera data as an FBX file would be huge. Waiting eagerly for this functionality.

Hi everyone!

any update on this thread?

I work for a production company that is starting a Virtual Production project and we would like to know if there is a way to extrapolate a fbx with camera tracking data that has the same duration in frames as the clip shot by the camera. This is to be able to work the clips and maybe update the CGI.

Is it possible to command Aximmetry to start a rec of a fbx taking as given the timecode coming in from the camera?

Thanks

I think they added it in a recent release! V2021.2.0 https://aximmetry.com/wiki/index.php?title=Software_Version_History


You can record the tracking data as an FBX file. I've not tried it out yet.

Hi Emilio,

Yes, the feature has been released.
And yes, you can record into FBX with the timecode coming from the camera. Please consult
