Technodolly motion control camera to Houdini

Filed under: Houdini, python — katisss @ 7:45 am

A Technodolly motion control camera

is probably the fanciest way to write a simple ascii file like this:

printf("%c%d.00,%.4f,%.4f,%.4f,%.3f,%.4f,%.4f,%.4f,%.4f,%.4f%c",
startLetter, frameNumber,
X, Y, Z,
pan, tilt, roll,
zoom, focus, iris, ā€™\nā€™);

R0.00, 4.2376,-1.0234,1.1942, -65.029,3.959,0.000, 0.000, 0.001, 0.00

Simple to translate into a .chan file for loading it into Houdini. The coordinate system needs to be changed a bit but luckily one can easily compare results against their free Maya plugin.
