I have a shoot coming up next week where we will be compositing several layers of green screen shots into live action BG plates. I would like to do simple tripod head pan/tilt moves with these instead of locking the shots down, and simplify the post with exactly repeated moves in all of the elements (save tracking everything). I don't want to get into a full-on MoCo rig, just a simple motion encoded head that will repeat the moves. I thought there is something like this existing that once a move is done, it will save the encoder data to a laptop (or other device) for exactly repeating the move for later elements. The Viewfactor's Mirus head would work for us but it is not shipping yet.
Does anyone have any experience with this kind of equipment, and where it would be available. We are shooting in LA.
Again, I know that full-on MoCo rigs will do this, but we don't have the budget.
Thanks in advance.
