Video ModeVideo Mode


Create programmable multi-keyframe camera movements with unlimited number of keyframes.

This mode finds use in the movie and film making business, live-production filming, and special effects video production.

How does it work?

The user can set as many keyframes as needed with specified time frame between the keyframes. PINE will move its’ connected motors along the programmed path in a smooth and continuous motion, allowing the film maker to create flawless and repeatable camera movements.

Video Mode Features

> Loop Mode – will result in a repeated back and forth movement between the keyframes which is perfect for filming interviews or similar events.

> Stop-Motion capability – allows you to move from keyframe to keyframe for even more flexibility.

Use-Case Explanation

As seen on the top of this page, PINE’s Video Mode can be used for special effects video production – showing the same person in one scene twice, while maintaining a smooth camera movement (linear slider motion and focus tracking). The two scenes were filmed independently with the same programmed camera movement and then merged to a single video.


Adding Keyframes
Move your motors to the desired positions, adjust the time value and click the “Add Keyframe” button. The current positions of the motors will be saved as a keyframe.

In Video mode you will be able to set an unlimited number of keyframes.

Adjust Motor Ramps
Adding motion ease in/out allows for the smoothest motions possible. Adjust for each motor independently.

Start Recording
Swipe to the control panel and start your recording by pressing the “Play” button. The progress of your video move will be shown while recording.

Activate Loop Mode before or anytime during the move.
