Imagineer Announces Partnerships
Imagineer Systems and FXhome also announced a partnership in which the two companies will collaborate to bring powerful, planar tracking based 3D Camera Solve capabilities to the newest product version of HitFilm 2 Ultimate. As a result of this partnership, HitFilm 2 Ultimate will include a special licensed version of mocha’s 3D Camera Solver called mocha HitFilm, and will be bundled with HitFilm 2 Ultimate. Also at IBC 2012, HitFilm 2 Ultimate and mocha HitFilm will be featured as a technology preview in the Sony booth (Elcium Building, 12.A10), where they will showcase Vegas™ Pro 12 interoperability with HitFilm Ultimate 2.0. The combination of mocha, HitFilm, and Vegas Pro creates a tremendously powerful, integrated post-production solution for a new generation of content creators and demonstrates the power of Imagineer’s Planar Tracking technology and mocha’s 3D camera solving technology.
“FXhome has emerged as a popular and incredibly affordable visual effect tool for consumer and hobbyist filmmakers worldwide, especially among up-and-coming artists who are constantly pushing the boundaries of creativity. Combining HitFilm 2 Ultimate with mocha's easy to use planar tracking based 3D camera solving will allow these artists to quickly integrate elements like particles, explosions and 3D models in true 3D space,” said Ross Shain, chief marketing officer of Imagineer Systems. “Add to this the significance to the market of bundling mocha HitFilm within Sony Vegas 12 Pro Suite; the community of Sony Vegas editors worldwide will now have access to these tools. This is an exciting development for Imagineer!”
The special licensed version of mocha HitFilm will be available within HitFilm 2 Ultimate and included as part of a bundle with Sony Vegas 12 Pro Suite.
