Shooting 3D stereoscopic might seem to be a complex and expensive process, however state of the art, user friendly,3D camera rigs from 3drigs.com make 3D filming a simpler and more enjoyable experience.
Whether shooting 3DS movies using 35mm film, broadcast cameras or most of the currently available Digital format cinema cameras, the 3D Rig's on board touch screen computer allow stereographers to enter critical camera, lens and user selectable paralax requirements to enable the built in 3DS calculator and stepper motors to accurately position the cameras at their correct inter - axial and convergence positions.
After having done extensive research into 3D stereoscopic filming we realised the need for versatile and cost effective rigs that would not only take the guesswork out of 3DS but would allow the user to shoot through a beam splitter, Mirror Mode, or with cameras Side by Side using the same rig components.
Our rigs are manufactured from high grade aluminium using precision CNC machines, thus providing a stable 3D platform. Our systems integrate highly accurate motion control hardware and software to ensure that cameras are always accurately positioned and 3D depth criteria constantly maintained.
Pro Ultra 3D Rig
The unique design of this all in one rig means that it is capable of being configured for filming in either Mirror Mode or Side by Side Mode. The rig can be switched between modes in a matter of minutes with no specialised tools required and it offers adjustment capabilities for fast camera alignment and lens changes.
The Pro Ultra Rig can carry most cameras without the need for adapter plates and cameras are mounted using either an Arri dovetail system or universal slotted plate using1/4" or 3/8" standard camera screws.
Mirror Mode uses a 50:50 beam splitter enclosed in a carbon fibre matte box. The vertically mounted camera can be adjusted on three axis for quick alignment of just about any camera and lens configuration. Side by Side mode allows for greater inter-axial distances to be achieved.
Pro Light 3D Rig
Stereoscopic 3D Rig
The Pro Light 3D Rig now adds another exiting dynamic to shooting 3D.
Weighing only 7Kg in Mirror Mode the Rig is ideally suited to carry smaller cameras for shooting on Steadycam or even hand held.
Android based proprietory software application allows full control of the Pro Light Rig from any Android smartphone or tablet.
The Pro Light is a fully computerised motion control rig that allows quick
camera alignment with motor control of height, tilt and roll of the Right camera. Also capable of IA adjustment of both cameras, for maintaining balance and optomising maximum IA in mirror mode, and, convergence of Left camera.
