Welcome to PanCanvasPro. Is this just another still-image panning application? That is up to you. Unlike the other available "Motion Control" or "Rostrum" applications that perform what is affectionately called the "Ken Burns" effect, PanCanvasPro does not use key frames. PanCanvasPro was designed by Videographers and Cinematographers for their own use. This means a simple and intuitive interface that replicates what the camera person has in mind as they look through the viewfinder. You see the entire move in one shot. Although simple it includes powerful features.

PanCanvasPro is reasonably priced at
$45 USD yet includes features only available to other applications for hundreds of dollars more.

PanCanvasPro is available for

  • Mac OS X 10.2x and up
  • Windows XP (should work with but has not been tested with 98, NT, or 2000)

PanCanvasPro requires Quicktime. Windows users will need to install QuickTime separately.

Above is a Mac screen shot showing the main control window, work window, and the "live" preview window.

The powerful preview window allows you to "scrub" back and forth to see exactly what the result will be. It reflects accurately any blur and/or ease settings that may be currently set.

The work window above shows how the start and end frames may be rotated to any angle.

The tab panel to the left shows the various controls that govern basic features of the project. Help tags are associated with all controls. By placing the mouse cursor over any control a comprehensive description of its function is displayed. This helps the new user get started quickly. Help tags may be toggled on and off as needed.

The Settings tab panel to the left shows the various controls that govern ease adjustments of the camera movement and motion blur effects that may be applied to the camera. Note that both ease and blur effects may be dynamically linked to movement to modulate the effects in a more realistic manner. All of these adjustments are visible in the Preview window.

The Output tab panel to the left shows the various controls that govern the rendering of the project. There are two output options: a self-contained QuickTime movie and a directory of sequentially numbered frames. For testing purposes, portions of the project may be rendered separately using the Render Section option. For broadcast television output there is the interlace option. Also, standard pixel aspect settings are available.
