The solution provides camera-tracking data for use in real-time rendering engines for virtual production or live compositing. It also enables the user to record tracking data for postproduction.
As part of Zeiss’ CinCraft ecosystem, Scenario also makes use of the Zeiss database of lens characteristics. “When used with Zeiss and Arri/Zeiss cine lenses, Scenario benefits from the CinCraft lens characteristics — their inclusion makes the system plug-and-play,” says Sundeep Reddy, product manager digital cinematography at Zeiss.
Designed to work with off-the-shelf equipment, CinCraft Scenario is natively compatible with major camera and lens encoder systems to provide all the data the system needs to track properly. Several of its hardware and software components can be individually configured to match the user’s needs: CinCraft CamBar captures the raw data out of the environment and hands it over to CinCraft Origin, which runs the main software and aggregates the data to compute position and movement. CinCraft Link connects CamBar and Origin and enables user-interface access through mobile devices.
