Acht Frankfurt Purchases monet Tracking SoftwareBest 2D tracker in the market will give higher quality tracks in much less time (August 31, 2005)
Imagineer Systems, the UK-based developer of the innovative mokey, monet and mofex visual effects tools, announced today that the leading German facility Acht Frankfurt has purchased its monet software.
"Buying monet was really a no-brainer," says Ralf Drechsler, Owner of Acht Frankfurt. "monet is simply the best 2D tracker in the market and it will give us higher quality tracks in much less time than any other high-end systems."
"In addition it allows us to add a lot of realism to shots very quickly by using the tools for recreating shadow and highlight passes," he continues. "It gives us a competitive edge that helps differentiate what we can offer our clients. They take a rock solid track for granted and will not accept us spending several days to produce it. Now we can live up to their expectations."
"We received a days on-site training, which helped us immensely to get into using the tool. The user interface is not very complex, but the 2D planar tracking approach does require a change in mindset that is best achieved with proper training" he concludes.
