Automated 3D Model Scans with PINE
31 January, 2018

Take a look at a new universal and wireless controller for motion control photography and videography. PINE Motion Controller will let users generate automated camera movements, panoramic gigapixel images and 360° photosphere photographs, motion controlled time-lapse, and more.

The tool is said to bring motion to your motorized sliders, pan and tilt heads, focus and zoom units, turntables, and anything that is driven by stepper motors. The controller adapts to all kinds of systems, so the possibilities here are almost limitless. 

The controller triggers different camera models — Canon, Sony and Nikon, for example.


  • Setup Assistant – motor Quick-Setup Assistant makes it ease and fast to have the right motor settings and guides you through the process of adapting PINE to your system.
  • Flexible – Adjust each motor to your system. Choose among existing motor profiles or create your own profiles and adjust gear-ratio, motor output current, limit positions, and more.

  • Adaptive Screen Layout – control each connected motor directly from one single screen through a horizontal scroll page.
  • No Limitations – set as many key frames as you need and create the most complex camera movements.
  • Motion Graphs – shows position, velocity, and acceleration curves for video and time-lapse moves.

The tool is still in the works, so you can’t get your hands on the controller just yet. You can find more details on the project and support it here.
