Your camera into a virtual world

DragonFly is a professional cross-platform virtual camera that gives you the power to view your computer-generated environments, character performances and scenes, just as if you were doing a live action shoot, but virtually. Rendering shots in real-time through the camera’s viewfinder, your LCD monitor, iPad or virtual reality headset, DragonFly lets you visualize your virtual world, record, bookmark, create snapshots and even replicate real camera moves.

Putting creative control back into the hands of directors and cinematographers working with CG, DragonFly gives you the power and immediacy to make creative decisions on the fly, upfront, saving time and expense during post. Coming soon for Unreal Engine and Unity 3D.

Bringing the creative freedom of live action to CG

Harnessing leading game-engine and motion tracking technologies, DragonFly puts directors and DPs center stage in a CG production. Giving you all the tools you need to drive a camera, in real-time, just as you would your favourite real-world camera, DragonFly lets you test camera angles and moves for your CG scene and actors performance, and view the creative result live. Explore, execute, record, and even export the most complex camera movements from start to finish, with DragonFly you get the same freedom to experiment as a director on a live action film set.

Powerful time-saving virtual cinematography made easy

DragonFly is designed to be a tool that works for you and not the other way around. Cross-platform and hardware agnostic, DragonFly gives you the freedom to work with a range of display and tracking solutions for whatever setup you’re running without the need for you to be an expert in Unreal Engine, Unity or Maya. We support ARKit for a light-weight wireless mobile virtual camera as well as gamepad inputs and Vive tracker, and if you’re running a more traditional virtual production setup, Optitrack systems with Vicon support.

Production proven virtual production workflow

Built in collaboration with leading hollywood studios to break down barriers in virtual production. DragonFly gives you an efficient end-to-end virtual cinematography solution from a highly optimized workflow for location scouting, rapid iteration on set, through to reviews and dailies, and if you’re working in a traditional pipeline, straight into post-production.
