In order to understand the matchmoving mechanism, we need to understand how the camera work.
The camera is a device that capture the light that this getting through the camera’s lens when the aperture opens at the front of the camera, then the light lands on a detector that called a charge-coupled device (CCD) breaks it up into millions of pixels. Thats how we get images at the end.
Eventually we are looking at a picture which is a 2D representation of the 3D world captured by the camera.. so cameras are devices that convert 3D into 2D images.
Guess what is the matchmove artist’s about?! Yes exactly the opposite, our mission is to convert these 2D sequences back into 3 dimensional digital space!
