First post here. I know this is a stop-motion site but I can't seem to find a forum elsewhere for this.
I'd trying to build a motion control rig for product videos. There's nothing out there which suits my needs so I thought I'd build something. The mechanics is all good but I'm having trouble figuring out how to connect it to some software.
I had my heart set on Dragonframe but it seems you cannot do real-time moves, as they call it, using Arduino unless you buy their very expensive DMC-16 unit. If anyone can help me with the following it would be amazing:
1) Is there a way to connect to Dragonframe using Arduino and do real-time moves? Am I missing something?
2) If not, can anyone suggest an alternate system?
Really appreciate any help here.
