Hi Paul,

>From my limited knowledge of PFTrack, I know it can extract Z-Depth and do
automatic transferral of textures from sequences onto geometry. Having
done a few tests, I don't think you'd find the Z-Depth to be accurate
enough to generate anything more than a basic surface that you'd be able
to get some parallax from.
