2d3 has released Boujou Bullet 2, an upgraded version of it's comparatively low-cost camera tracking and matchmoving software. Version 2 gives the tracking engine and interface an overhaul and adds new tools.

The tracking engine has been taken from Boujou Bullet's big brother, Boujou 3. 2d3 says that this delivers a tenfold performance increase and tracks with greater accuracy, even in adverse conditions. It identifies hundreds of features in frame of video and can handle objects that temporarily block the field of view, extreme lighting, radical camera moves, patterns and detailed-but-unstructured surfaces such as fur and hair.

 border=0 />Boujou Bullet 2 features a polygonal masking tool that can be used to isolate elements for motion tracking or removal. The interface has been rearranged to bring together a palette of shortcuts with integrated overlay and history tree displays. The target tracker tool has been given a zoom function. Image format support has been improved with addition of 16-bit per channel colour and more input and output formats.
