DESCRIPTION

CINETAKES allows script supervisors to edit metadata and easily log takes in manual mode. It also allows taking or adding pictures from the Photos app for fast identification of each take.

The compatibility with ARRI ALEXA Mini and Amira makes life on set much easier. Once connected to the camera the app will instantly log each take as the operator hits record and stop on the camera. Framegrabs can also be enabled from Settings, thus the app will take a framegrab for each take.

The Takes module also lets the user rate each take and input notes/comments related to each take. The takes sync with Cinegizmo.com allowing the director, DOP, DIT and post crew to view your notes and rating anytime and anywhere.

The free version of CineControl lets you monitor your camera settings only. To have full control over the camera through the app the full version must be activated via a valid account with Cinegizmo.com

To use CINETAKES, the user is required to have a valid account with Cinegizmo.com
