Tracking data from other apps

Hello All
is it possible to import camera tracking data from apps such as PFTrack, maya, cinema 4d. Also exporting camera data to other apps.

Many Thanks

Heya,

Apple announced that The Pixel Farm is going to support export to Motion, and I would imagine that SynthEyes will follow suit. The Maxon folks have supported some Motion integration in the past, so I wouldn't be surprised if they added camera export to Motion.

One thing to keep in mind is that Motion projects are straightforward XML, so it wouldn't be much work to write a script to convert Maya cameras to Motion cameras and vice versa.

The important part was being able to import data from PFtrack and cinema 4D. I have footage with camera dolly and wanted to translate the camera data to the text in motion. And then applying a filter effect only to the text triggered by audio behaviour. Again great ino.
Thanks
