About Keen tools Face Tracker

FaceTracker is a Foundry Nuke node developed by Keen Tools It is used for facial gesture tracking along with tracking a model's position. It is an extremely useful software for face clean up, face replacement, digital make up, etc. FaceTracker is built on top of GeoTracker and includes all its strengths such as simple and powerful model positioning tool, 2D and surface masks, exporting options, focal length estimation, etc. FaceTracker also comes with support for a lot of different facial gestures.

Features

GeoTracker is designed to fill the gap in Nuke’s functionality and provide fast and reliable object tracker right in the compositing software. 

GeoTracker can track camera even in tricky shots with zoom and high motion blur. Scene-based camera tracking gives you ability to use keyframes, which allows localizing and tackling complex part of a sequence. Also resulting camera is already aligned to a scene geometry Zooming lenses could add a significant complexity for simple camera tracking. Fortunately for scene-based tracking you can track it much easier and more precise

To obtain more stable and robust object tracking you can import you ordinary 2D tracks from Nuke’s Tracker node into GeoTracker. It will consider them as “gold” tracks and give them additional weight in solver. Usually you’ll not need them but for really complex shots with poor features they can help a lot.

GeoTracker allows you to use 2D mask to eliminate occlusion and 3D surface masks to exclude reflective and transparent parts of a tracked object.

Although it is possible to estimate focal length in key frames and use interpolated focal length between them it could be very useful to track camera zoom changes with focal length tracking.

Magic Keyframe″ allows you to automatically set up key frames. It speed ups tracking process a lot and provides you with consistent and precise key frames

GeoTracker allows tracking of objects with skeleton by calculating bone transformations. It’s also possible to fixate some degrees of freedom to match real object behaviour or to export single bone transformation to attach rigid object to tracked rigged geometry

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

FAQs

Below are some frequently asked questions for Keen tools Face Tracker

Q. What model should I use as an input for FaceTracker?

Currently it should be a model built by FaceBuilder node. The input can be connected directly to a FaceBuilder node, or to a ReadGeo node, if you have the FaceBuilder model built and saved to a file.


Q. What can I change in the input model?

You can change anything but vertices count and order. You can manually move vertices if FaceBuilder's result doesn't suit you, remove or add faces, change normals and UVs.

  • Pros -
  • Techjockey has been hugely helpful to my organization in finding a software provider to fit our needs. We quickly got advice on five providers who were a potentially good fit for a small non-profit like us. That led within a couple of days to having five calls arranged. The presentations provided by Techjockey on how to evaluate providers were very instructive for us as a small organization with little knowledge of this field, and their follow-up with us to check on how the process was going was timely and helpful. Having entered this field fairly clueless as to how to navigate all the options, the support of Techjockey has been invaluable.
