Smooth Camera Path and remove Camera spike
on Nov 22, 2015 at 1:34:36 pm

Hallo everybody,
I'm on Mac osx with the latest Syntheyes build.
Just two questions:

1 - there is a way to smooth the Camera path (after a right solving)? And is this is advisable?

2 - In the graph editor sometime I meet a Camera Spike: there is a way to smooth it or we have to remove directly this frame (but how?)?

Many thanks for a reply!

Hi Duca,

1. In general you do not want to smooth the camera path. That could lead to sliding, but on occasion it can be helpful depending on what the needs of the 3d track are. You can find it in the solver tab "filtering control"

2. A camera spike usually means there is a bad tracker somewhere. Finding the tracker and turning it off for at least that frame or deleting it is the best way to go. If you want to smooth or delete the spike in the camera path you can either use the deglitch tool or just delete the keyframes. Here is a very short video I did this morning on deleting a keyframe on the camera path.

Hope that helps,
Brian

Hi Brian,
you are the best and unique resource we have after Syntheyes Official Forum was closed.

Ask something to Russ in very hard, as well...

Many, many thanks!

Thanks for the kind words. I'm glad I could help.

There are a lot of great matchmove artists out there, hopefully in the future the Creative Cow Syntheyes forum will end up taking over where the official Syntheyes forum left off.
