MovieSlate’s clapper sticks start your shots, and automatically log them
Tap or shake.
Tap the clapper (or optionally shake your iPad, iPhone, or iPod)
and the clapper opens and closes— producing an optional sync sound and animations.
When the clapper closes, all production and shot data are saved to the History Log.
MovieSlate can detect claps from external iPad cases, like the
ikan T-Slate. Now with MovieSlate 8 you can even use Denecke’s connected TS-TCB slate. GalleryLearn More
After tapping or shaking to start the shot, the clapper opens.
You can set an optional delay before the clapper closes again— plenty of time to get
your hand out of the shot.
When a shot starts, a Siri-like voice can announce roll/scene/take, and other credits. Full-screen
credits animation can briefly display each piece of production meta such as: date, timecode, director,
DP, roll, scene, take, production, location, and many more. View credits animation
Moments after starting the shot, a “shot-in-progress” screen appears
with buttons to:
Tap the “End the Shot” button to save the
Timecode out point to the History log. You can choose to display optional “end roll”
credit animations to photograph at the end of each shot. Even show tail sticks when the shot ends.
