Anyone have experience with exporting matchmover to houdini? Aug. 31, 2009, 5:42 p.m.

It seems to me Boujou's script or hip file is not updated to Houdini 10 so the camera does not have all the default parameters.

You can go to the Gear Icon of the camera's Parameters, Edit Rendering Parameters…, expand Mantra 10.0 > View and look for Enable Background Image & Background Image parameters. Select both parameters, click on the “->” button to add them to the camera and hit Accept.

Now, the Boujou camera will have the correct parameters.


That did it!!! Thank you so much!!

The roto image does not appear in the render, that is for viewport only. To make it appear in the render, go to your camera—->view tab, and there is a field for background image. Point this to the file(s) you want to be rendered with the scene…….then hit render.

Yes, but I do not have that option in my boujou track to hip file. I posted a pic a few posts up that shows the error. Im not sure what it is doing. I can get it to work if I drop in the default camera however. Its pretty weird.

I did try what stevenong suggested and it did work for a default camera that I added but with the camera on the tracked footage from boujou it was completely missing. I think it was in that error picture I posted a few posts ago. Im not 100% sure why its not there. Thats probably the whole reason im having this problem in the first place.

EDIT: OK I just retried the tutorial and everything worked up until i hit render lol. When I hit render, after adding the image through roto, it still does not display in my render window. Im really not sure what is going on here.
