We're slowly heading towards releasing DitoGear™ Evolution - a multi-axis keyframe-based motion control system for all DitoGear™ equipment.
Thanks to everybody involved in Evolution Beta Testing Program (private) we got invaluable feedback and the software side heads towards the first public release. Hardware-wise the Evolution Interface is already finished and only Firmware Updates are expected.
DitoGear™ Public Beta Stage will be announced in December. Stay tuned.
As for this video: The rig assembly shot has been created using a special multi-pass live action filming effect.
1. A motion control movement has been designed using keyframe-based interface including 3 axes: dolly, pan and tilt.
2. We have played back the movement multiple times in real time (NO timelapse or stop motion used this time) adding additional items to the rig being filmed.
3. All separate passes have been synchronized in post and edited in one seamless shot (no masking used, just cuts/crossfades between takes). We did the same for making of shot showing camera moving on the slider and OmniHead.
In order to do this kind of special effects shot you need a 100% accurate and precise motion control system, so that all passes are identical and allow for seamless editing and just a bit of time.
