FaceBuilder provides a set of checks to disable some parts of a model. It can be handy when you exporting a part of a head, not a full model

While tracking most of man-hours goes to setting up keyframes. And this is what PinTool does with ease. Fast and intuitive it lets you manipulate a 3D-model’s position by dragging control points on model’s surface (pins) to their positions in the frame

Sometimes camera focal length should be known. For example for tracking. But sometimes you have to deal with footage which is shot with unknown lens. Don’t worry – PinTool helps you to figure it out

There are a lot of render settings simplifying work with PinTool. There is a Motion Blur mode for fast moving objects, automatically adjusted wireframe opacity helping to stay focused on tracking on different zoom levels and lit wireframe to underline model details even in wireframe mode. Colour setup knobs are also available for almost everything from wireframe to surface mask colour

  • Pros -
  • They supplied me with keys for the software literally by return mail. After finding that my system was not compatible with the software after using their excellent communications (reply's to emails within the hour), they offered a full refund. that is what I call customer service and I highly recommend them. I will buy from them again should I need more software.
