kOS is an advanced camera motion control software that unlocks the highest level of control and features for Kessler’s industry-leading motion control systems including Second Shooter Plus, Second Shooter Pro, and the newest motion control system CineShooter.
This app allows for ultra-refined keyframe based control in a powerful and easy-to-use interface for applications such as timelapse, stop motion, live video/cinematography, event video, and advanced photography controlled wirelessly via iPad.
CONTROL ANY MOTION
Live, looping, stop motion, timelapse, GigaPixel* and Event Mode camera moves at your fingertips.
Simply move each axis into position and hit record. kOS saves your exact positioning for 100% repeatable moves.
Your CineShooter, Second Shooter Pro, or Second Shooter Plus device creates its own WiFi network that you can connect your device to instantly.
COMPLEX KEYFRAME MOVEMENT
Create up to 20 keyframes at once for ultra complex movement.
EASY KEYFRAME SMOOTHING
Add and manipulate curves to your moves for ease-in and ease-out motion. Also, link each side of the keyframe to match.
No need to re-record the move if it's not exactly what you want. Edit one or all axes and keyframes into the perfect position. Featuring incremental, exact motor position plus tap and move keyframe adjustments.
Repeat the exact same move over and over again at the same speed or variable speeds depending on the application.
DELAY BY DATE/TIME
Not going to be around when your move needs to start? No problem. Easily set a date/time or fixed amount of time to have your move begin. kOS takes care of the rest.
Sync up your moves easily via the built-in flash marks with adjustable delay.
PRE & POST-PHOTOS (TIMELAPSE MODE)
Easily add a series of head or tail photos to your timelapse move.
GO TO POSITION
Set minimum and maximum ranges on each axis (ie. slider 0" to 32") and go to any position by entering a value.
LOAD & GO
This feature allows for pre-loading a move so that you are able to start instantly whenever you are ready.
CAMERA PRE and POST ROLL
Trigger your camera to start recording any amount of time before the move begins and when to stop after the move ends.
ANALOG CONTROL PANEL
Manually control several axes live with the built in analog controller.
Event mode is mainly intended for live events or scenarios where exact position recalling on-the-fly is needed. For example, if you are filming a live concert, you can have different positions on stage saved. You can move easily from the drummer, to the guitarist, to the lead singer and so forth. This mode is also great for repeatedly hitting actor marks on set.
GigaPixel is traditionally used for 360 degree virtual tours, panoramic photographs or GigaPixel images which are extremely high resolution photographs that are compiled of many lower resolution photographs.
Expand the graph with one touch when precise key framing is needed.
SCRUB THROUGH MOVE
Need to edit a key frame or see when the camera will be in a certain position? Use the scrub feature to instantly move to a desired position.
Looping is made easy with kOS. Simply select one-time or continuous looping.
Set CineShooter, Second Shooter Pro, Second Shooter Plus device to trigger or control your camera’s exposure time within kOS.
AUTO TIMELAPSE CALCULATION
Enter your desired clip length and frame rate, then kOS will calculate the run time needed.
Move in very small increments to ensure a precise camera position.
Upload saved moves directly to your Dropbox account within kOS app.
Each axis is able to be customized with individual features such as run speed, dampening, smoothness of curves, bump button, and axis naming.
* Bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
Event Mode doesn’t work
I have no idea how this version got released. Kessler is aware of it but hasn’t put out an update yet. The real kicker is this is a paid upgrade to KOS.
