Introduction and Project Overview Hi everyone, my name is Michael Raphaelovich. I'm a freelance visual effects artist and my specialty is visual effects match moving and compositing. My latest work include commercials, music videos, and other courses for Digital Tutors. In this course we're going to take a look at PFTrack's 2015 release, and we'll see new and exciting features that Pixel Farm had included in this brand new release. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course include how to use the Image Survey node, how to create meshes out of 3D point clouds, how to use Survey Solver's new geometry options, and how to work with the user interface improvements. PFTrack 2015 is powerful software and that is because of the new tools and nodes which would simplify and boost your match moving work as well. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these new techniques and features with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
