+ Science.D.Visions today announced 3DEqualizer4, the latest version of its match moving software, winner of an Academy Award® in 2002 for Technical Achievement. With a comprehensive re-write of nearly 90 percent of its core code, 3DEqualizer4 is literally a new product, and will offer visual effects artists and technical directors (TD’s) a substantially faster workflow that generates extremely precise results on multiple operating platforms including Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. 3DEqualizer4 is available now in solid Beta, and is expected to ship in autumn 2009. Match moving is a visual effects technology that helps post production engineers insert virtual objects into real footage with the correct position, scale, orientation and motion in relation to photographed objects in a scene, so that a virtual camera move can be reproduced by relying on traditional 2D motion tracking techniques. The intent is that when the virtual and real scenes are composited together they will have the same perspective and appear seamless.Science.D.Visions has been a pioneer of match moving software for over 12 years, with a customer list including: Weta Digital (Wellington, NZ), Cinesite (London), Double Negative (London), The Moving Picture Company (London), The Mill (London), Animal Logic (Sydney), Framestore/CFC (London), Hybride (Montréal)—and many other studios that rely on 3DEqualizer to make cinematic magic. >> More Information
