Fusion / Syntheyes Bridge

A while ago I’ve blogged about the planar tracking features of Syntheyes and I’ve finally made some updates to the Fusion exporter to support them. In addition to that, I’ve played around with the Python support in Syntheyes and I’ve written a script that can create and update (!) a comp in a running Fusion instance. This saves you a lot of hassle if you have tweaked a matchmove or added trackers to a point cloud but you don’t want to export a composition from scratch!

The package consists of three scripts: an advanced exporter for Syntheyes, a Python script for Syntheyes that is able to create and update tools from a matchmove (camera, point cloud, planar trackers) and a small tool script for Fusion that sets up a Syntheyes project from a selected Loader. Syntheyes Pro 2013.11 or later required for the Python scripts. Readme included.

The Fusion6 exporter is based on the Fusion5 script that ships with Syntheyes and has been updated in many ways:

  • support for stereo camera pairs
  • support for planar trackers (with or without planar export preparation script)
  • work area (timeline) options as in AfterEffects exporter
  • Create locked cameras to prevent their accidental modifications
  • Added project info to comp’s comments tab and footage name to camera’s comments
  • various fixes like paths and obj meshes
  • convert paths to a Windows format when running Syntheyes on Mac/Linux
