Looks Matter.
Customize the slate’s appearance for each production, or to suit your personal style. Choose from various themes, slate backgrounds, colors, fonts, and clapper stick designs. Even add your own production logo graphic— which also appears at the top of MovieSlate’s HTML and Sound Reports. View some examples

Get Focused.
Display focus, color, or gray charts on the slate— useful to your camera operator when adjusting white balance or setting lens focus. View included charts

Get Flashy.
Choose a slate graphic to display when the shot starts, and how long to display it.

Roll Credits.
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

Trigger Happy.
Choose how to trigger the start of a shot by: tapping the clapper sticks, hinge button, anywhere on the slate, shaking the iOS device, or detecting external clapper sticks from an iPad case like the ikan T-Slate, or electronic stick signal from a Denecke TS-TCB.
