A new toy arrived this week. It's a modified KFLOP motion control board. Gerald Thompson is a Motion Control Operator who has set out to create his own software for the board with all of the features (and more!) he has come to expect over the years from using industry tools such as Kuper and the like.

I am very interested in his ventures. Coming from the post production side of the film industry, I have always been interested in repeatable motion control photography for use in visual effects. For the last couple of years I have been tinkering with the Arduino as an introduction to electronics and it has taught me a lot. But I have decided that a full featured dedicated motion control board is the way to go (for me) if I am ever going to make some images before I grow tired of the pursuit.

Gerald has shown me a relatively affordable way to do this. I am hoping to be able to consolidate some of the ideas previously mentioned on this blog for use with the KFLOP.

My Blog is Changing

I'm redesigning my blog template. So don't freak out and think there's something wrong with your graphics card :) Basically I have widened it to make room for photo galleries that I will be posting more frequently now. I have also gone with the dark grey pro app look as It's my preference when working in any 3d or 2d app for creating digital works. It may look a bit funky for a while as I find the time to update menus and blog titles an the like so please bare with me.

I know I haven't been posting much lately, but I have some exiting motion control stuff that I will be blogging about just as soon as it's up and running!
