Totally Tabular.
Choose which tabs appear in MovieSlate’s tabbar at the bottom of the screen. Hide unneeded tabs and keep the essential tabs that fit your current workflow.

Behavior Modification.
Decide what should happen when shots start, end, and on false takes. Automatically increment take and slate numbers, filenames, and more.

Get Snippy.

Input with Style.

Customize these labels— as seen onscreen, and in reports.

Save History.
Choose to save GPS location to History, or whether to save any History at all.

Report Immediately.
Save time when running reports by pre-choosing your preferred report format, contents, and recipient lists.

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.
