View Full Version : Anyone know anything about PF's products?
26th June 2007, 03:08
So ok, I've been trying to decide between many different kinds of tracking software. Do I go with the stand alone; do I go with more or less expensive, etc. PF's software "looks good on paper" as they say, but I've been reading a lot of ridiculous complaints in theirs and other forums. Any of you guys know anything about them? Specifically PF Track and PF Match. I'd really like to make an informed opinion when I decide to drop that many thousands on a product for my small company that comes from a motion gfx background and is now doing our first feature film. I've asked a similar question in the forum recently, and got some great advice so I figured I'd ask further. Ideally, I'm thinking that I'm loving Imagineer's Mocha even though it's in beta, and of course Monet. Anyway, thoughts? Comments?

I think pf track is outstanding.
I also thing Mocha is brilliant - different thing really - similar of course. But there is no doubt that PF Track is great with the new version - in fact we will be offering courses on it next term at fxphd - including a free license to use for training.

Hey Jay, PFTrack is definitely brilliant. I've been doing the fxphd course on it and it really has a lot of excellent features, plus it is quite usable at the same time. That said, it is a bit on the pricy side.
For the best bang-for-the-buck have a look at Syntheyes. The GUI is.... "special"....but under the hood it is quite powerful as well. And it is dirt cheap, compared to the other packages.
As Mike said, I can strongly suggest doing the fxphd course, as you can try the packages out for an extended period plus get top notch training on them at the same time (unfortunately there is no Syntheyes training but I'm sure the general knowledge will transfer just fine).
