eSync - Trigger Record when Camera Records

Post by circassia » Fri May 24, 2013 7:37 am

Hi,

we are using "Arri Alexa" as our Witness-Cam and we would like to trigger capture in motive, when the record button is pressed. Do you know how i can achieve this?

We have already an eSync Optitrack Box

thanks!

Hi Circassia,

The Arri Alexa camera would need to provide an output signal signalling that it has started to record. If it provides such a signal, then this could be connected to the eSync, and the Synchronization panel in Motive could be configured to use this signal to start a recording
