TorqTrack receives encoder data for each measurement axis of the support system in real-time and feeds it to this model. The virtual camera model simulates exactly the way your real camera moves. The virtual objects seemingly become part of the real environment and vice versa throughout every camera movement with remarkable accuracy.
Delivers complete camera tracking data
TorqTrack generates all relevant parameters of the virtual camera model for any camera rig that is equipped with encoders. Whether it is a simple pan-tilt-head or a high-end telescopic crane, you can be sure to have the full set of data for any movement of your camera; besides the position and orientation of the camera, even all lens parameters are generated.
Simple integration of any sensorized support system
Thanks to its open and flexible structural design, TorqTrack works for any support system that is equipped with encoders, any lens, and any camera. It does not matter if your production employs a pan-tilt-head, crane, dolly, tripod, or any other camera support system, TorqTrack supports it.
TorqTrack sends the final camera tracking data via a publicly documented interface to your graphics software. All leading vendors support this interface. The transmission via an Ethernet network allows an unlimited number of graphics clients.
TorqTrack can, in essence, run on any third-party workstation. As a standard, we deliver a miniature computer which receives the mechanical encoder values via network or serial line from any vendor of these mechanical support systems.
It communicates via USB to a PC. The TorqTrack camera tracking software runs on a touchscreen PC and can be controlled via a graphical user interface. Depending on the individual support system, other hardware configurations might apply.
