Encoding refers to using, or mounting, optical encoders or sensors on manual or automated equipment to very accurately measure and record their motion. Encoding is widely used to aid in post-production giving the exact data of what a camera, lens or object was doing during filming. Combined with Real Time 3D software it is also used to aid on set production by mixing in real time the live action elements that are being shot with 3D generated elements. This enables crews to see how the final shot will look, taking the guess work out of where to place elements while shooting. Encoding and Real Time 3D Visualisation saves countless hours on set and in post-production.

Anything can be encoded, sometimes just a single axis is encoded and sometimes 20 depending on the application. Mr Moco can interface and encode a huge variety of equipment, including lenses, dollies (Fisher, Panther, etc.), Cranes (Louma, Techno-crane, GF, Panther, Scorpio, etc.), heads (O'connor, Ronford Baker, Sachtler, Panther, Manfrotto, Scorpio, Libra, Hothead, etc.) , and motion control rigs, as well as winches, and other rigs, no matter what you plan on using we can encode it.

Encoding is often done wirelessly using our wireless encoding system called Torus, or using Flair with the real-time XYZ option. Torus is a very simple solution which stores data to a PDA, iPhone or iPad. Data can be stored in different formats for use with memory cards or emailing. Positions are recorded in full synchronization to the camera or to timecode - encoded positions match exactly where camera exposure occurred.
