Motion control is quickly becoming the must have tool for professionals and enthusiasts capturing video, time-lapse, panoramic photography and image based lighting. Typically accurate motion control comes with a hefty price tag and little flexibility. The OpenMoCo.org mission is to provide a community for open-source software and hardware that enables photographers and videographers on a budget access to motion control tools. Here you'll find articles, hardware designs, software, and experiments in motion control.
The OpenMoCo Reference Design
The OpenMoCo Reference Design was originally created by Chris Church (shutterdrone) for experimenting with steppers and motion controls for timelapse use. It has since grown to support different forms of motion control, such as gigapixel panoramas, stereoscopic shooting, and more, and has been adapted by many individuals to their specific needs.
