It’s back, it’s better, and ActionVFX dub it ready to supercharge your VFX. The wait is now over! CamTrackAR 2.0 has dropped and has been jam-packed with a multitude of new features and workflow improvements to help you unleash your full creativity. Read on to find out more about the latest update.
Improved user interface
We’ve revamped CamTrackAR’s user interface allowing you to easily navigate the app while providing more control to virtual production scenes! Its user-friendly interface has been designed to be familiar to anyone who has used the default iOS camera app.
New features for virtual production
3D model import
You can now import 3D models (.USDZ) as virtual backgrounds or props, which you can place dynamically around your scene for a fully immersive pre-visualization experience.
Chroma key filter
The latest update includes an advanced chroma key filter for working with green or blue backgrounds, allowing you to easily select and isolate subjects before applying virtual backgrounds.
The CamTrackAR 2.0 release includes a professional de-spill filter to remove color cast from the background onto the subject.
Real-time compositing and keying
Want to place your actors within a virtual environment? Need to tweak your footage to fit your needs better? With version 2.0, you can effortlessly modify chroma keying properties, composite, and key your footage – all in real-time!
Improved camera controls
CamTrackAR’s camera controls have also made a significant step up with the introduction of new controls for color temperature, exposure, and exposure bias. Additionally, achieving that perfect shot is now easier than ever with version 2.0’s improved camera focus control.
Autodesk FBX export
In addition to CamTrackAR’s extensive list of export options, version 2.0 offers new functionality for exporting camera data to the Autodesk FBX format.
We’ve also added new functionality for importing still images to place into virtual scenes and made improvements for greater stability and performance. So what are you waiting for? Download the CamTrackAR update here.
*Please note that the reason CamTrackAR can only be used on iOS devices currently is down to the AR camera data we are able to pull from Apple’s hardware technology. We started with ARKit, which is amazingly good, and we are actively talking to Google about the best way forward for Android – so stay tuned!
