Virtual Production Motion Control

Unreal Engine

Use CineShooter in conjunction with an HTC Cosmos Elite and tracker like Vive to create a virtual stage and production. Check out how Chris Field (@biolapse) breaks down his process.

Virtual Production Motion Control

Unreal Engine

We've built an Unreal Engine tracker-less integration feature into our proprietary motion control software, kOS. Developed alongside real UE users.

ENCODED DC SERVOS

The best motors in its class.

Unlike stepper drive systems, encoded DC servos are perfectly smooth and give bi-directional feedback to the system maintaining perfect position.

CineShooter Mobile App

Control CineShooter
on your mobile device.
Wirelessly.

CineShooter+ Remote App

Motion control simplified. Set up shots in minutes with an easy-to-use interface.

POWERED BY kOS

Industry-Leading Motion Control App

Need more control?  kOS is our advanced camera motion control software that unlocks the highest level of control and features for Kessler’s motion control systems with over 15+ years of development. Available on Mac, PC, and iPad OS.

LENS CONTROL MOTORS

Seamlessly combine focus/iris/zoom pulls with camera movement to create multi-axis shots that otherwise require multiple people. And nail it the first take.

Shooting Modes

With over 14 years of motion control development and listening to our customers, we can gladly say that CineShooter is the most feature-rich in its class.

Available in-head or with Remote app

ONBOARD JOYSTICK

Control manually or program moves directly via the joystick on the CineShooter head. No other devices needed.

TIMELAPSE

Program your move then play it back as slow as you'd like. 10 minutes, 10 hours, 10 months. You decide.

STOP MOTION

Similar to timelapse, but with time between positions to move your subject or change your scene.

LOOPING

Loop once or continuously with ease. 

FAST MODE

Allows motors to run at higher speeds for specialty VFX shots, high frame rate, and fast camera motion.

QUIET MODE

Restricts motors to run quietly for sound-sensitive situations.

FREEMOTION™

When activated, it “relaxes” the motors and allows the user to freely hand-position the camera to program keyframes. Requires Smart Handle.

GAME CONTROLLER

Control your CineShooter rig with familiar game controllers such as PS4, XBOX, and USB controllers.

INERTIA WHEELS

Connect inertia wheels such as NODO to control movement.

EMULATION MODE

Allows you to move motors by changing the orientation of your device.

MINI EVENT MODE

Taking cues from kOS, Mini Event Mode allows you to go to specific programmed positions with a tap of a button - even change the transition time to speed up or slow down on the fly. 

DRAGONFRAME

Dragonframe users can add CineShooter connected motors to their motion control workspace.

Available with kOS/kOS Premium

MANUAL

Move CineShooter via sliders when programming isn't needed.

TIMELAPSE

Program your move then play it back as slow as you'd like. 10 minutes, 10 hours, 10 months. You decide.

STOP MOTION

Similar to timelapse, but with time between positions to move your subject or change your scene.

LOOPING

Loop once or continuously with ease. 

FAST MODE

Allows motors to run at higher speeds for specialty VFX shots, high frame rate, and fast camera motion.

QUIET MODE

Restricts motors to run quietly for sound-sensitive situations.

ANALOG CONTROL PANEL

Manually control several axes live with the built in analog controller and digital joysticks.

GAME CONTROLLER

Control your CineShooter rig with familiar game controllers such as PS4, XBOX, and USB controllers.

EVENT MODE

Event mode is mainly intended for live events or scenarios where exact position recalling on-the-fly is needed. For example, if you are filming a live concert, you can have different positions on stage saved. You can move easily from the drummer, to the guitarist, to the lead singer and so forth. This mode is also great for repeatedly hitting actor marks on set.

MULTILAPSE

Looking to capture more than 1 timelapse at a time? Playback up to 3 timelapses simultaneously.

GIGAPIXEL

GigaPixel is traditionally used for 360 degree virtual tours, panoramic photographs or GigaPixel images which are extremely high resolution photographs that are compiled of many lower resolution photographs.

DRAGONFRAME

Dragonframe users can add CineShooter connected motors to their motion control workspace.

CINESHOOTER+ MACRO

CineShooter+ Macro was made for those performing ultra-close, macro shots and in heavy-lifting applications where fast moves and quiet environments aren’t needed. Using the same form as the standard CineShooter (except increased gear ratio and encoder resolution), it fits right in with the Kessler motion control ecosystem.

Game controllers

Compositing made simple. Simply re-play your move or even slow it down or speed it up! Being a true nodal point head, it takes precision to the next level.

Fast & Quiet

CineShooter is fast when you need it to be and quiet when it's most important.

Ultra Portable

The perfect size. Small enough to carry around, but big enough to handle rock-solid motion control.

Virtual
Productions

CineShooter pairs perfectly with virtual productions and Unreal Engine to achieve Hollywood levels of visuals. See how Tony Reale quickly sets up CineShooter, a 4K Projector, and Unreal Engine to create different scenes in his studio.
