No More MoCo. Yay, yay, yay.

Here's a peek into the future that's particularly exciting:

Video Matching

This reminds me a little of the product 2D3's purportedly been working on for a while (these demo movs have been on their site for at least two years but if they can get around to delivering any kind of automated functionality similar to what is suggested by these demos then they can take their time). The bus demo is my favorite - if you keep your eyes peeled you'll notice the blobby figures on the far right who in their way really verify to me that the software is doing exactly what it claims to be doing.

Pixel Dust

The prospect of combining camera matching and the kind of analysis behind Pixel Dust means that motion control style shots can finally move away from two ton noisy slow moving thousands of dollars in cash and prizes to rent for eight hourslandia which has huge implications for the way fx shots are used and created for the rest of us. Or so sez I.
