stereoscopic tools in smoke 2011
on May 11, 2010 at 12:59:03 pm

Hi I was wondering if anyone can comment on the quality of smokes tools for camera realignment, particularly concerning correcting negative parallax (a result of excessive toe in). I have been impressed with Mysticas tools for this and am wondering how smoke 2011 compares.

thanks y'all

Keith

Did you mean, SGO MISTIKA, which used to be a program called Jaleo on old IRIX SGI gear?

I highly dought that SMOKE has the same abilities for stereoscopic that mistika has.

Also creative cow is mainly Americans and SGO is a Spanish company that is just finally making headway in the UK. It will be a while before their are any SGO facilities in the USA. There might be one or two in LA now, since NAB was all about Stereoscopic and MISTIKA is touted as the best stereo tool in the world.

The only distribution in the western world(europe, uk, usa) is
http://www.pixelution.co.uk

Call them and ask, they would be your best informational resource.

I'm equally curious as well on how much controls there are on the Smoke Mac when it comes to 3D stereoscopic processing. Can it adjust convergence and things like that ?

Go here and watch these, its totally worth it.

http://www.fxguide.com/fxguidetv.html

fxguidetv #079 -- Will explain SMOKES Stereoscopic toolset. They have the abaility to fix total convergence, but not based on area, just the entire frame.

Then go watch
fxguidetv #08 --- That will explain how The Foundry Nuke's OCULA plugin was used to fix problems in AVATAR.

SGO mistika has some of the same capabilities that OCULA has, but OCULA has a lot more features.

SMOKE, iQ Pablo, any of the DI stereoscopic tools can only do full frame convergence fixes, if you two frames are skewed or distorted left right, you need OCULA.

Now go over here and watch this.

Also here.

I know that Mistika has OPTICAL flow technology, like OCULA, that is what is being used to fix any STEREO problems.
