Join Brian Morse for an in-depth discussion in this video Using a text file with 3D locations, part of SynthEyes: Tracking with Survey Data.
- [Voiceover] I wanna show you how to bring in…a text file with 3D locations,…and use that to help solve our shot.…So, what I did was from the survey shot,…I exported out plain trackers into a text file.…And we're gonna be able to bring in those locations.…So, the way I did that was from the survey shot,…I went to File, Export, Export Plain Trackers,…and when you do that, you're gonna end up with…a text file that looks like this,…which has 3D locations and the tracker name.…
So the advantage of being able to use a text file,…is if we were on set, and you recorded 3D locations,…you could actually just write them out in a text file,…and then just import them right into SynthEyes.…So, let's head back over to SynthEyes.…So we wanna load in our trackers,…but we can't just load it right into this scene.…Because if we load it right into this scene,…then we wouldn't be able to cross length the trackers.…So we're gonna have to add a placeholder, or another camera.…
So let's go up to Shot, Add Shot, and this does not…matter what the shot is, because we're just importing…
