Key Features

Intuitive UI

Intuitive UI

  • Intuitive graphical user interface, which can be controlled over ethernet.
  • Full motion editing of keyframed, imported or recorded moves. Axes are easily customisable and can be scaled and displayed in human-readable formats, such as degrees, or meters or feet.
  • 2D & 3D fully editable graphics showing position, speed and acceleration.
  • 3D Graphics for full scene previsualisation and real-time interfacing to Maya & MotionBuilder, as well as any other 3rd party renderers, virtual studios or augmented reality.

Accurate Lens

Accurate Lens

& Camera Control

  • Lens parameters stored to automate focus and calibrate zooms in focal lengths with great accuracy. Lens meta-data can be recorded and exported. Built-in lens mathematics and wizards so lenses can be easily calibrated in any user-desired units, including feet, centimetres, inches, and so on.
  • Control of iris and shutter angles on camera allowing speed ramps.
    Interface to industry-standard lenses such as Fujinon analog and digital lenses.
  • Interface to industry-standard wireless lens controls, including recording and playback.

Live Motion Inputs

Live Motion Inputs

  • Mimic allows recording of motion including manually pushing a rig or turning a motor by hand and then playing back the motion.
  • Fully compatible with any USB HID (Human Interface Device), such as Joysticks, Gamepads, Spacemouse, and custom interfaces and keyboards, even VR devices such as Oculus Rift.
  • Algorithmic and lookup table controlled axes, so the motion of one axis depends on the motion of another in a linear or non-linear manner.

Feature Highlights

Flair

Flair is the culmination of 50 years robotics experience, resulting in the industry leading software solution for motion control camera robotics.

Target Tracking

Set your start and end positions, identify the subject and let Target Tracking automatically program the individual axis movements.

Syncronisation

Program timings in frames, timecode or incremental values of either to ensure the precise triggering of movements.

Connectivity

Flair’s hardware is an Ethernet-based distributed control system. The open API enables control of 3rd party devices.

CGI Interfacing

Export and import motion data to and from your CGI and 3D graphics packages, such as Maya or Motionbuilder.

Multi-Axis Precision

Controls over 500 axes of motion, trigger multiple events simultaneously and features 512 channel DMX lighting control.

Precise Movement Control

Visualise and edit your moves, controlling the precise position, orientation and speed of every axis in 2D or 3D graphs.

Intuitive UI Design

Compatible with a diverse range of input devices, such as handwheels, pan bars and motion control heads.
