Mo-Sys Engineering has integrated its virtual production software – Mo-Sys VP Pro – with the Sony Venice camera. Capturing the dynamic camera settings data direct from the Sony Venice, users can simplify and speed-up virtual production workflows.
The Sony Venice full-frame digital cinematography camera offers a large number of software-controlled resolution and aspect ratio settings. Mo-Sys VP Pro links directly to the camera software, monitoring every take and shot to highlight any mismatched settings, while capturing the Venice camera data to assist in down-stream post-production compositing.
The integration means that Mo-Sys VP Pro goes into record mode whenever the Sony Venice camera starts recording. Mo-Sys VP Pro captures the file naming format the camera uses to name the media files and uses the same name for the metadata file containing the camera settings data, ensuring that matching the two together in post-production is simple.
“Virtual production is a powerful creative tool, for film as well as for television,” said Michael Geissler, CEO of Mo-Sys. “It is a complex business, though, and smart systems that speed synchronisation and set-up in post-production give a huge boost to productivity.”
Mo-Sys recently announced the Cinematic XR Focus feature for Mo-Sys VP Pro, allowing camera operators to pull focus between real and virtual elements within an LED volume. This type of focus pull was previously impossible to achieve but using a Preston lens controller, Mo-Sys StarTracker and Mo-Sys VP Pro, it is now easily achievable.
The Sony Venice integration is available immediately.
