Most hardware vendors integrate to Dragonframe using our DFMoco protocol (the same that we offer for free as Arduino code). The is a non real-time protocol. It provides shoot-move-shoot motion control, and is sufficient for almost all stop-motion animation.

The eMotimo spectrum ST4 is the first third-party system to directly implement our real-time protocol. This makes it easier to create and test moves, as well as shoot live video.

Ditogear offers DMC-16 adapters that allow their hardware to be run in real-time from our DMC-16.
