Needs a better trial

I'm fully supportive of a Dev trying to make money on their app and requiring a subscription or purchase after a free download. But 5 seconds is not enough time.. I can barely point and turn the camera within 5 seconds. Consider updating to 10seconds so we can try enough movement to gauge if it's the output is good enough to use for the future.

So fun for VFX

Corridor Crew used this in some of their videos so I had to try it out. Crazy how well the tracking works!! Complete game changer for VFX, no more tracking markers or worrying about keeping detail in the frame. I can track a blue sky and it’ll be fine. 4K support would be great to have

it’s ok.

it’s ok for tracking. my major complaint is only 5 seconds recording time. you could record longer than 5 seconds with iphone camera and track it in blender with better results. 2/5 stars
