AimCrane PRO Testing

Presentation of amazing automatic aiming and focusing capabilities

It was a bit rainy, so we changed initial plan of shooting in a crowded area. So we stayed near the company, and tried to find some nice environment.

As you can see, the whole scene is shot in one piece, without touching the joystick. We didn't had a lot of time since it was raining, but we could go on for hours like this. Hope you like it ;)
