ZEBRA Specifications


     The ZEBRA allows a full range of camera motion, with a three-axis head providing Pan, Tilt, and Roll of the camera. It's flexibility, speed of setup, and precision is unmatched in portable motion control. Included with the standard system package is 30' of track offering about 26' of travel. Track lengths of 100 ft, or even more are possible, with proper planning.

     Our software from Academy Award winning Kuper Controls is industry standard and allows for precise camera and system control from stop or go motion animation, through time lapse and variable interval shooting; to high speed shooting at frame rates up to 160 fps. Kuper can import or export move data to or from mainstream computer animation packages like Soft Image, Maya, Houdini, 3DMax, and others. It's a perfect match for PreViz applications.

     A special software feature allows all moves to be centered at the nodal point of the lens, greatly simplifying move programming with probe or snorkel lenses (for tabletop work), or for matching moves in different scale ratios.
