Virtual Production

Familiar Filmmaking with Innovative Tools

With the support of an Epic Games MegaGrant, Monogram’s integration with Unreal Engine provides a familiar way for filmmakers to tell their stories with tactile tools. The integration consists of two parts: 

Out-of-box controls, the ability to control any selected actor with numerous functions and access to pre-built profiles and presets made for object transformation, camera controls, lighting, and sequencer.

Custom integration, the Monogram Unreal Engine SDK will allow developers to integrate controls for unique instances and customized Unreal Engine environments with the help of Blueprints.

Intuitive And Direct Control Of Key Virtual Camera Parameters

Directors and production crew can leverage the precision of familiar filmmaking processes thanks to Monogram’s tactile tools and get “behind the camera” even in new virtual production environments. Control focus, zoom, aperture, and camera movements.

Lighting Controls For A Smoother On Set Experience

Adjust intensity, pattern, and color of virtual lights for a smoother experience on set. Synchronize virtual and digital lights with access to the DMX plugin.

Control Transport And Sequencer In Unreal Engine

Pre-vis and real-time production operators can seamlessly control on set recording and on-set playback.

Global Transform And Translate

Control location, rotation, scale of any actor in Unreal Engine.

Modular And Customizable To Fit Any Production Demands

Mix and match the number of modules, layout, functionality, and sensitivity of each input to customize for diverse production needs.

Powerful Enough for the Big Screen

Using the Monogram SDK, the Screen Industries Research and Training Centre (SIRT) used Blueprints to produce two unique integrations for Creative Console. nDisplay Control Toolkit enables Monogram hardware to control camera settings of both the inner frustum camera and root display cluster cameras. Multi-Operator Connection Tool allows multiple Monogram Consoles from different workstations to provide input into a single Unreal Engine instance.

Control Camera with nDisplay

Control camera settings at runtime with the nDisplay Control Toolkit. Translate and rotate to position content on display as needed. Utilize Null objects to adjust positioning of actors and game objects. Check out the demo here.

Collaborate in Real-Time

Connect multiple workstations and Creative Consoles to a single Unreal scene. Multi-operator support allows the entire crew to collaborate in real-time. Check out the demo here.

Supports Unreal Engine

Creative Console offers native support to Unreal Engine (4.25 & 4.26) with 3 powerful integrations: Monogram Creative Console Integration, nDisplay Control Toolkit & Multi-operator Connection Tool.
