Voodoo Camera Tracker: free matchmove alternative with AE

In Free 3D Matchmoving Alternative For After Effects at, Hugo Tromp shows how to use the free Voodoo Camera Tracker (Windows/Linux) in conjunction with After Effects:

"Matchmoving has been discussed a lot these days and it has become accessible for more and more people. With the introduction of programs like Syntheyes, PFTrack, and The Foundry’s CameraTracker plug-in the reconstructing of a 3D camera move has been made easier. A lot of people however are not aware of other solutions that are available, like free software. Voodoo Camera Tracker is one of those pieces of software and today I´ll be showing you how to solve your shot and then create some awesome 3D stuff..."

If you're on the Mac (or Windows), PFhoe is inexpensive ($100) and effective.
