Hi Richard smile

Carrara supports syntheyes (syncar) format ...camera tracking data.
You load the film/video into syntheyes, it analyses it and calculates the position of the camera and creates a set of tracking points.

Carrara loads that file and creates a camera so you can then add 3d objects into that film/video
.
There are also other alternative “Camera tracking” software available,.. like Voodoo (free) or PFHoe which needs a plugin converter to convert it’s output to syncar.
