This Free Script for Maya Can Create Cameras that Match Live Action Camera Settings.
If you’ve ever done 3D match moves or need to place 3D elements into a shot, you know how important it is to get the camera settings correct in your scene. Instead of transposing all the information that you need, you can alternatively use a new script from Pipeline Tools creator Robert Skiena, Filmback Matcher.
Filmback Matcher can create a camera that matches a live action one. It uses the free online resource the vfxcamdb.com as a database of its camera resources. Simply choose the camera you want from the drop-down menu, choose which sensor area best matches the real-life camera, then choose an image resolution and name the camera. The script will create a camera in your scene with all the settings using the requested filmback.
