Video matching (or Matchmoving) is a process that allows us to composite computer generated objects into a video background.  Using this process we can incorporate animated vehicle motion on top of real video taken of the accident scene to create very accurate and photo-realistic looking visualizations of accidents.


We can do this very accurately because of advancements of technologies like High-Definition 3D Laser Scanning and sophisticated matchmoving software.


Furthermore, the matchmoving process is based on the Science of Photogrammetry which gives you a solid scientific foundation for the visualizations.
