With the products of Black Forest Motion, many different application areas can be covered. This is achieved with the help of our PINE motion controllers, which are among the most universal solutions on the motion control market! Be it the classic time-lapse photography, video & live productions, the capture of giga-pixel and 360 degree photos or the creation of real 3D objects through photogrammetry.
Each application is controlled directly via the PINE Motion app on your smartphone. Learn more about each mode below.
Multiple frames are created at a fixed time interval. If all individual images are then combined to a video, slow events can be displayed at an accelerated rate. An additional movement of the camera achieves particularly dynamic time-lapses.
Automated camera movements allow you to achieve particularly professional results for video productions of all kinds. Programmed movements can be reproduced exactly several times with our control system. This is especially interesting for visual effects.
Many individual images are created automatically in the form of mosaics with a pan/tilt head. Combining (stitching) all images creates high-resolution giga-pixel images with enormous detail. Zoom into the image without losing resolution.
For 360-degree images, the camera is rotated and panned fully automatically in all directions in the perspective center while several individual images are created. By stitching the images together, interactive 360-degree images are created that capture everything around you.
Photogrammetry is a technique in which virtual 3D objects are created from several individual images of an object. All single images have to be taken from several sides of the object. With our equipment, the process of image creation is fully automated.
Define multiple camera orientations that can be moved to at the touch of a button. Our live mode in combination with a multi-axis motion kit is especially suitable for video productions at live events such as music concerts.
For professional product shots, it is useful to have objects rotate on a turntable. This is very easy with one of our rotation axes and an additional turntable disk. Alternatively, 360-degree product photos can be created for marketing and online stores.
With our high-precision macro slider and our PINE Controller, several macro images of a very small object can be created fully automatically. The slider moves in small steps towards the object. By focus-stacking (overlazing of the single images) images with enormous depth of field are created.
