TimeSplice is an award winning DSLR multiple camera array to freeze time and move around it!

Consider it the ‘3D effect in a 2D world’.

Director: Mark Toia

Mark Ruff’s multi-camera time-splice system was fantastic to work with and so was he.
Everything went exactly to plan, Marks on-set previews and innovative stabilization and de-flicker programs really helped relax our nervous clients and save thousands in post.
I’ll be back for more.

Mark and Kate Ruff are behind the tech, providing a turnkey solution including image stabilisation, keying and retiming of this dynamic effect.

With up to 75 cameras you can achieve 3 seconds of screen duration.
All cameras are externally powered and tethered to multiple computers to provide global camera parameters in seconds.

After a take is shot the images download in less than 1 minute (depending upon capture size) and are positionally stabilised to provide an excellent on set evaluation.

Ther are also 50 inter-camera delays to provide a ‘bullet time’ effect, rather than completely frozen.

Rig time is between 2 – 4 hours, depending on how many cameras are used.
Each camera section is supported by a rail and tripod.
Each camera is 24 Mpx or 6k resolution.


Multiple Plates

You can combine multiple plates of frozen and bullet time to create a motion capture effect;

360 degree is possible as well as retiming.
Here is an example that has been re-timed from 60 frames to 1080 frames and then speed ramped;
