(Phoenixville, Pennsylvania--November 16, 2015) Andersson Technologies LLC (Phoenixville, PA) has released SynthEyes 1511, the latest version of its 3-D tracking and match-moving application for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
The release focuses on adding supporting features, most directly requested by users, and expanding on the amazing new Geometric Hierarchy (GeoH) Tracking system introduced in SynthEyes 1508. Highlights include:
§ New Airbrush tool for GeoH weights, plus significant enhancements to other GeoH lasso/paint tools.
§ New RED library 6.0.4 featuring GPU processing. With a suitable CUDA/OpenCL-capable video card and plenty of GPU and main memory, we've seen speedups of 10x decoding RED files.
§ Mesh de-duplication — high-performance options to keep/move large meshes out of SNI files to reduce space, especially when you have many SNI file versions. (Not in Intro version.
§ New View/Timebar background/Show tracker count (and Show cache status) menu items to show the tracker-count-based background from the graph editor ("Do I have enough trackers?") on the timebar.
§ New mesh-editing Smudge tool with hard (interior) or soft-select (exterior) modes.
§ Pinning tool can now move a whole solved scene, for example to align tripod solves.
§ New code for aggressively finding and exporting quads, currently utilized for OBJ, FBX, and Blender.
§ Documentation and improvements for moving cameras, objects, meshes, and even the whole scene using Synthia, aiding customers who have discovered Synthia's remarkable problem-solving ability.
§ Enhancements for integrating SynthEyes in studio environments.
§ Bug fixes, notably for Prepend Frames and workarounds for El Capitan.
§ Around 80 new features, fixes, and tweaks in all.
