22" Platform Holds Up to 200 lbs
For larger items, larger platforms can be attached to the 22" platform.
Mac and PC Compatible
This cross platform solution is perfect for both the professional and the layman.
Provides Smooth, Precise Rotation of Heavy Products
The hardware design, engineering and integration of hardware and software technology provide the user with accurate results time after time.
Captures Both JPEG and Raw Files
Since each high resolution still shot of a 360 can be used for any application, we encourage our customers to shoot RAW + JPG. That way they set it up once, shoot it once and are able to use the images over and over again.
Compatible With Most Canon and Nikon SLR Cameras
During the last 8 years of focusing on photography automation, we have made over 50 cameras from Canon and Nikon compatible with our software. See the complete list. (Please note: Nikon cameras are not compatible with PhotoCapture 360M for MAC software)
Automated Image Capture
The PhotoCapture 360M software communicates thru USB to synchronize picture taking and turntable movement. After entering the animation details - # of shots per revolution, file name, file size and spin rotation simply click Start. The images are automatically photographed at each unique angle.
Created Animations Can be Displayed on All Browsers and Mobile Devices
Distribute your message without limitations. Animations created by PhotoCapture 360M can be sent by email, distributed online or viewed on any mobile device. (iPad, iPhone, Droid, Blackberry, and Windows devices)
Before taking a single picture, PhotoCapture allows users to view the object in real-time on a monitor screen. This makes composing the picture simple. Use the PhotoCapture software to pre-crop and control camera settings in real-time. Also preview the object spinning 360 degrees to ensure proper item placement (to avoid wobble around the center) and to set pre-crop markers so the image are cropped as they are captured.
Confirm and Re-take
Immediately after image capture is complete, the pictures are displayed in the software so the user can confirm image quality. If needed, certain images can be re-shot. To re-take an image, simply click the image. The turntable will automatically rotate to that position, take a new picture and replace the original. This feature works really well for harder items such as shiny or reflective objects and always ensures that the images are perfect before the user begins processing and stitching.
Batch Image Processing
Featuring batch image editing, watermarking, sizing, naming, exporting, importing and saving, it typically takes two or three software programs to accomplish what PhotoCapture does in one application. Tremendous efficiencies can be obtained using PhotoCapture's batch processing and saving features. The built-in software workflows are able to quickly transition images for immediate use.
PhotoCapture 360M Streamlines the Creation of Ortery TruView 360 and 3D Input Files
Ortery TruView 360 and Ortery TruView 3D compose regular JPG images into amazing cylindrical, hemispherical and full spherical animations with deep zoom and multi-row viewing capabilities. By pressing the Ortery TruView 360 or Ortery TruView 3D buttons inside the PhotoCapture 360M software, the program guides the user through automatically capturing and managing the images to be handed off to Ortery TruView for composition.
Fast Production Tool
PhotoCapture 360M was built for speed. Users can expect to take and stitch 24 pictures into a flash file in ~3 min 30 seconds. Our customers can attest that PhotoCapture is able to produce thousands of professional pictures and animations in just days! No project is too large. PhotoCapture technology makes product photography profitable.
Three-Speed Clockwise or Counterclockwise Rotation (Continuous or Stepping)
Users can expect to take and Users can choose to rotate their items clockwise or counterclockwise and shoot in three different photography modes: Manual, Time Lapse or Continuous. Time Lapse and Manual photography modes can be used to create dual animations. For example, as the item spins it also opens and closes or turns on and off.
Creates Professional Still Shots and 360° Animations
Creates Custom Animations
PhotoCapture can create watermarked and dual animations at 360, 180, 120 and 90 degrees. Users can also select the number of pictures and angles to create fully custom animations.
Streamlined, Open Workflow
The workflows utilized by PhotoCapture 360M to create professional still shots and 360-degree animations were created for speed and efficiency. While everything can be done in one program, there are several points in the workflow where the user can break off and use other programs to manage the editing or stitching of their images. This open, yet streamlined format is the result of working with many customers to figure out what is necessary and valued in the workflow.
For companies interested in building PhotoCapture 360M into a customized workflow, a Mac and Windows-based SDK with hooks to control turntable movement is available.
Powerful Business Communication Tool
PhotoCapture can create both 360-degree photos and professional stills and both can be used to change how businesses communicate on a daily basis. By taking a picture or animation, annotating it with drawings and text then sending it via email, there is no room left for misunderstandings or poor communication. It's perfect for companies that manufacture overseas or communicate internally / externally with people spread across different locations.
