Moco is finally here! We are happy to bring motion control to our entire family of camera sliders. Moco is a sophisticated system that gives experienced shooters and timelapse rookies (like myself) the ability to perform advanced camera movements across real-time, timelapse and stop motion modes. Moco gives operators an incredible amount of control while being user friendly for any level of user. As you’ll see in the launch video, Moco allowed us to shoot the same movement over and over for seamless compositing in post. Check out the video, behind-the-scenes and more information below. Check out www.cinevate.com/moco/ for ordering information.
Moco delivers complete motion control for Cinevate’s revered line of camera sliders, infusing emotion into your story through timelapse, real time motion and stop motion – all with macro precision.
Moco comes with everything you need to equip your Cinevate Camera Slider for motorized slider operation. Shoot in real time with on-the-fly speed adjustment and dampening control or record and repeat moves for multiple takes and complex visual effects shots. Using Moco’s intuitive controller, programming timelapse, real time motion and stop motion has never been easier.
With Moco you don’t lose time swapping in and out a different motor for each motor function. The single servo motor handles all movements across all modes, while maintaining unparalleled precision. Moco boasts precision positioning to 0.1 mm.
I can honestly say that picking up the Moco controller and operating is incredibly easy. When I first tried the system out I was in ‘Free Ride’ mode within minutes and recording movements (with variable speed and dampening) shortly after. If you’re not an experienced timelapse photographer there is a bit of a learning curve in regards to knowing which camera settings to use (i.e. shutter or exposure time) depending on your shooting situation (i.e. fast moving clouds, slow moving clouds, crowds of people, etc). Luckily, there are lots of resources online and you’ll be seeing more information from us in the coming weeks. We will be updating our blog frequently with Moco tips and tricks so check back often or subscribe to our Facebook and Twitter pages. Check back soon for a 3rd party review and technical breakdown of the Atlas 30 Moco unit from an experienced visual effects shooter. Feel free to send questions to ask @ cinevate.com.
