6.3.4 Camera Tracking Artist / Matchmove Artist Camera tracking or matchmoving refers to the process of matching the position and angle of CGI (such as a spaceship or animated creature) to real footage shot with a film or video camera. This process can be accomplished manually on a frame by frame basis. More common is the use of automated matchmoving software based on computer vision techniques that can extract camera position and rotation values over time from a frame sequence of digitized footage with minimal user intervention. Done correctly, matchmoving allows the seamless compositing of additional elements into camera footage that may have been too expensive or impossible to achieve otherwise.
