GripTools news: new OSC Xtension
on Apr 19, 2012 at 8:23:47 pm


Camera GripTools is a professional real-time desktop motion capture system for Cinema 4D.
GripTools enables you to use physical devices and record motion in real-time.
This can be a huge time saver for complex animations.

I am very happy to introduce our new Camera GripTools OSC Xtension for CINEMA 4D.

As you probably know, OSC stands for ‘Open Sound Control’.
It is a protocol for communication amongst computers and other multimedia devices.
Although originating in music technology, it is now widely used to control all kinds of equipment.

Today's smartphone devices are triggering the birth of a huge amount of apps featuring touch interfaces and a lot are OSC capable.
Apps now available for the Apple and Android platform range from straight fader control surfaces to multidimensional controls, experimental audio, color, GPS, physics, etc.

We think that the OSC Xtension will open gates between iOS/Android/Mac/Windows apps on one side and Cinema 4D on the other.
These new possibilities now become available to create motion in the CGI world using the well known and familiar GripTools system.

Some OSC Xtension highlights:
- Seamless integration with the standard Camera GripTools system
- 64 axes assignable to C4D object properties
- Handles multiple apps (senders) simultaneously
- Handles both WiFi and wired devices
- Auto detection of incoming OSC messages
- Clear setup dialog offers great overview of the OSC message content
