Throughout this boujou tutorial, we'll take our first steps into the program. We'll go over the software's user interface and learn how to tackle common shots such as a distorted hand-held footage and a nodal-pan shot. Once you are familiarized with these techniques, you'll be able to take your matchmoving skills to the next level. The techniques in this boujou training will improve your abilities as a matchmover and will give you an introduction to boujou, a powerful matchmoving software. Software required: Boujou 5, Maya 2014, NUKE 7.
Introduction and Project Overview Hello, everyone. My name is Michael Raphaelovich. I'm a matchmoving supervisor and compositing lead at Cinema 1 Film and FX. Some of my latest projects include music videos, commercial work, and other VFX-based projects. In this course, we'll take you through the first day in boujou. When you work with new software, the best way to go is to get your feet wet and see how boujou is working and learn a few tips and tricks that will help you with your matchmoving projects. We will see how to navigate through the software. We will see how to work with the software's toolbox. We will see how to track automatically and manually, and we will see how to track the whole footage from start to finish. By the end of this course, you will have learned how to pull your footage in, track it, solve the 3D space, and finish the job in Maya. I'm excited to share these valuable tricks and techniques with fellow artists, so let's get started with the first lesson.
