TLS for Live Motion Control

What are the specs for TLS? Particularly travel speeds and maximum weight. Clearly TLS with the Second Shooter Controller is perfect for Time Lapse - but can I do other things besides TLS such as Live Motion, Looping and Stop Motion??

Hi David,
The TLS is a great solution for Timelapse and Stop Motion, however it was not designed for live video motion control situations. The motor that is integrated into the cart has a slow moving/ high torque gearing ratio. If you found yourself in a situation where you needed to use it for video in a pinch it may work, but the cart will move very slowly and due to the gearing ratio the motor noise will be very loud making the natural/on camera audio unusable.

If you are looking for a more versatile system that can perform both live motion and timelapses with a small camera we would recommend our Second Shooter Motion Control system with another one of our sliders like the Stealth or CineSlider.
