"SolidTrack offers a new approach to filming as it gives the producer the opportunity to see real-time special effects while shooting. In the past, technical teams were working to make the scene in line with what had been shot in motion capture. But with Solid Track the production line is reversed and it makes the director able to see in, the eye of the camera, a 3D scenery which is very close to the final result of the movie." declared Mr. Isaac Partouche, President of SolidAnim Company.
