The latest release also features an additional camera tracker geared to producing a fast and accurate solution based on a given focal length when information about the camera is available.
</p>
<p>
New survey point constraints allow users to lock the camera solution to surveyed positional data, creating a 3D structure. The company claims that even approximate data about the location of a few points can be useful in solving low-parallax shots.

<p>
Non-consecutive frame matching allows the tracking of temporarily occluded features and objects and image proxies give faster replays and better performance especially when working with 4K film plates.

<p>
A redesigned user interface offers tighter integration into high-end production pipelines including Target Tracks and Gold Tracks, according to 2d3. The user-guidance wizard and troubleshooting system provides a simpler interface for less advanced users.

Boujou three includes Shake node export and a lens distortion plug-in for Shake, allowing users to import boujou data into Shake and deal with lens distortion as part of the compositing process. It also supports a range of bit depths and file formats, including Maya IFF, 2d3 claims.

Boujou three is available now for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux, costing $10,000 (around £5,500) Boujou bullet is available for £1,365.
