REAL-TIME XYZ OUTPUT

Previous product | Next product

Mark Roberts Motion Control systems can output the exact camera position and orientation, in real-time for any application where computer graphics backgrounds or foregrounds need to be generated such as virtual studios or real-time previsualisation. In fact, Mark Roberts Motion Control’s systems were used in the development of the original virtual studios due to their accuracy and versatility. Using the real-time XYZ output option, positions for the camera including roll, zoom and focus are exported 50 or 60 times a second (PAL/NTSC) fully synchronised to incoming video fields, allowing the CGI workstations to generate the graphics. This option is not just for motion control rigs but for any system, from real-time lens data output to encoded cranes and heads, or spider-cam type applications.

The benefits include:

  • Ability to output either camera XYZ position or all axis positions, i.e. Track, Lift, Rotate, Extend, Pan, Tilt, etc.
  • Gives very accurate results at high speed – so your on-set pre-viz will look much better and more real.
  • Can be fully synchronized to video – no discrepancies over time.
  • Can be used with Filmbox, Maya or any major CGI package (subject to realtime import abilities).
  • Has been widely used for feature films and virtual studios
  • Can be used with encoded cranes, dollies, heads, rigs, 3D rigs, Lenses and full motion control
  • Standard RS232 or Ethernet output – interface to any system
  • MRMC can develop your whole realtime workflow including any needed plug-ins
