3.1 Using Geometry to Solve a Camera in PFTrack

Providing PFTrack with as much information as possible from the set of a shoot can help get a good result more easily. The amount of information you could use can range from which camera and lens has been used, to the distance of specific features from the camera in a frame to a LIDAR scan or a set of photos of the location, to geometric models of structures on set.

1.3 The Importance of Film Back

Why is it important to make sure PFTrack knows the correct sensor size? When solving a scene, PFTrack has to determine a plethora of information about the camera and location a clip was shot. The more information you can give PFTrack about the camera and scene you are trying to solve, the less PFTrack has to figure out itself and the quicker and easier it is to get a good result.
