    I was wondering why there doesn’t seem to be a forum for matchmoving? It is becoming more and more of an integral part of digital workflows and with Matchmover, Boujou, PFTrack/Hoe and Syntheyes all out there doing the business, surely there should be a dedicated forum?

    Seriously though, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who does any matchmoving on these boards. If Silverlight can have it’s own forum, I certainly think that Boujou, PFTrack, Matchmover, Syntheyes etc are deserving of their own little hangout?

    I agree. I encourage anyone who would visit the matchmoving forum to post a reply to this post. There doesn’t exist a good matchmoving forum and I’ve looked. To me it doesn’t make sense why creativecow wouldn’t have made one years ago.

    Uh, well, let’s see: maybe because you are only the SECOND person to ask…

    If you look around the forums you’ll see several Matchmoving related posts that are in the wrong forum ie After Effects, Maya.

    You consider AE and Maya the wrong forums? We sure don’t. We have seen the traffic and we’ve thought about such a forum from time to time.

    We are willing to add one, but we never add these kinds of forums without a host and NO ONE has volunteered. Without a host, such a forum would be a ghost town and we always cull dead forums.

    It would be nice if people would use a dedicated matchmoving forum but in our experience, it is a very small chance that such a forum would fly — especially without a host.

    And so we’ve never added one.
