Real Time Camera Tracking / Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality / Mixed Reality Rendering
Established by Richard Widgery to give cinematographers the tools they need to match their creativity, Take4D staff are veteran pioneers in digital cinematography, motion capture and motion control having been at the fore-front of development since 1989. Their innovation in feature film, games, television and virtual production makes them the go-to people in complicated multi-skilled shooting set-ups. We draw on a range of technologies to give DOPs, directors and visual effects artist the tools needed to stay ahead of audience expectations with a blend of artistic and industrial engineering that sit firmly in between all three worlds… practical cinematography, CGI, and creative visualisation.
We firmly believe in bridging the gap between Pre-Visualisation, Production, and Post-Visualisation, some term this Virtual Production – we like to call it just “Visualisation”.
Cost and Time Saving
One of the greatest benefits that Take4D brings to effects productions is significant cost and time savings. Whilst each project has unique requirements, Take4D products and services delivers an unprecedented level of clarity and efficiency, shortening development times, and eliminating errors and waste. Due to the ability to see things live in real time on-set, issues that are typically not seen until much later in the pipeline are identified or even corrected before they become a costly problem.
