Rodeo FX is a leader in the field of camera tracking and data capture. 3D tracking or often called “matchmoving” is used to track the movement of the camera in a scene to reproduce it in a 3D environment. When CG elements are composited back into the original plate, everything will appear in perfect sync.

Our team can be present on-set during the principal photography stage to compile critical data that will save you time and money throughout the visual effects production process. We then use advanced tracking software with skilled artists to get the critical information to “matchmove”. Instead of relying on parallax alone, we use the survey data acquired on-set to recreate the original camera movement. Additional technology we use includes HDRI, Lidar Scan (Light Detection And Ranging) with a laser beam technology and Total Station…all with extreme precision.
