Feature Highlights

LOW COST ANIMATION

Designed for stop-frame and 3D stereoscopic animation, where live action speeds are not required, the Animoko features very precise zero backlash gearing to ensure pinpoint accuracy.

MULTI-AXIS OPERATION

The Animoko is ideal for table-top animation with full control of the track, extend, lift, rotate, pan and tilt axes; plus has optional focus and zoom controls, delivering excellent flexibility for animators.

EASY STORAGE

When fully retracted for storage the unit is very small, making it ideal for studios and education centres where space is at a premium.

TARGET TRACKING

The Animoko rig uses MRMC’s Flair software to control its motion and integrates well with the Target Tracking feature, to deliver incredibly precise camera movement.

Track Options

Precision Bearing Rail

Designed to not bend or twist during any motion or acceleration/deceleration, the Precision Bearing Rail is the best track to use with the Talos. It’s inherent rigidity and straightness provides the ultimate stable platform for the Talos, allowing for high-accuracy at speed, even over uneven ground.

Available in 1.2, 1.8 and 3 metre sections.

 

Lightweight Bearing Rail

Delivering higher levels of performance than industry standard dolly rails, the Lightweight Bearing Rail is lighter and more portable than the Precision Bearing rail and can be taken apart if necessary for easy transportation.

Available in 1.6, 1.8 and 3 metre sections.
