Achieve your vision with Bolt motion control
Use motion control rigs with the Bolt to create innovative and eye-catching visuals.

- Up to 44lb payload
- Rotation Speed: 100°/s
- Can be positioned upside down to hang fashion accessories on such as bags
- Different size disks for a variety objects
This rig is great for situations where you need to drop an item, or series of items, with controllable and repeatable speed and timing. This could be ice cubes dropping into a glass, french fries dropping onto a plate, etc. For small items, it can also be used as a single-axis model mover.
- Adjustable size
- Adjustable speed
- Repeatable timing
- Various rigging points for adjustment and placement
Purpose-built rigs for dropping a small item or group of items simultaneously. Unlike dropping items from a conveyor belt, which can create a slight forward-tumbling motion, rigs like the Iris Dropper allow objects to drop straight into free fall with minimal disturbance.
- Perform repeatable drops
- Triggered pneumatically
- Includes feed tray attachment
- Multiple baby pin mounting points for rigging
These rigs are primarily designed to pour, drop, or spill items or liquids from a container. This could be pouring beer from a bottle, cereal out of a box, etc. Pour rigs pair especially well with high frame rate footage, which helps you capture the texture, weight, and consistency of your product with striking and attractive visuals.
- Fully adjustable speed
- Highly configurable
- Multiple applications
- Repeatable timing

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the benefit of using motion control when it comes to the post-production?
Post production relies heavily on having good original takes. Motion Control is often the unsung hero of effects, enabling scenes from the real world to be seamlessly multi-layered and combined with computer graphics and digital effects. Eye-catching post production graphics packages attract a lot of attention and impress viewers, but many people miss the vital context that without the motion control footage at the foundation, these high end effects could not exist.
Additionally, because the camera trajectory and perspective is very easily exported from the rig to the post-production tools, CGI backgrounds and foreground elements can be very easily and accurately added.
