The NMX Motion App allows photographers and filmmakers to connect to the Dynamic Perception NMX Motion Controller via Bluetooth LE and easily set up motion control time-lapse and video moves. This intuitive app uses a virtual joystick to set start and end points for 3 axis moves then program the characteristics. All settings from how long it will take to travel between the start and end points to calculated video length are available on the program setup screen. The timelapse calculator gives instant feedback, if one setting is changed all effected parameters are recalculated instantly. Users have the ability to test fire timelapse intervals and to access advanced camera timing settings. When satisfied with the motion plan the app then commands the rig to return to it's beginning position and execute the move. Once the motion is underway the app gives the user instant feedback on shots, time remaining and calculated video time for time-lapse setups. While the NMX controller is running the motion program the NMX Motion app can be closed and the mobile device can even be powered down to conserve energy during long shots. Shooters can reconnect to the NMX at any time for status updates or to pause/stop the program.
IMPORTANT!: KEEP YOUR FIRMWARE UP-TO-DATE on the NMX!
NOTE: The Bluetooth module in the NMX Controller only supports devices with Bluetooth Low Energy (also known as BTLE, Smart or 4.0). iOS devices previous to LE technology will unfortunately not be able to connect/work with the NMX Controller. The following Apple mobile devices are LE compatible: iPhone (6 Plus, 6, 5s, 5c, 5 & 4s), iPad (Air, Mini, 3rd & 4th gen), iPod touch.

Back to being great again!
EDIT: Back to using this great app during church services. Brief panic is now over. XD
App Blues Update
Ok, you know how anticipate on making a certain thing happen and when that moment come it doesn't happen for one reason or another? Well, it happen to me. It can also happen to anyone. It's called unforeseen occurances. I ordered the slider system from DP and was caught in the middle of an app firmware update. By the time I received my system, it was still on the old firmware which I did not know and apparently neither did DP. I sent an error message email to DP from the app and Jay figured out why I was not up and running. Plain frustration was apparent when I wrote my first review of the app. However, I did interjected in that first review that I could see how great and easy the app would be if it worked and work well. And it works great. Thanks again Jay!! They (DP) are sincere about getting you up and running so if you have problems, give them a chance to help you. I had to come back and make a retraction though I was being totally honest in my first review.
Keep those firmware coming and updated!
5 stars for the App!!!
Good start, long way to go
Using with Stage Zero 3 axis set up and iPhone 6. This rig produces beautiful slides, pans and tilts that have been making my time-lapses look incredible. The smooth ramp up and down from the start point to the end point is great. The app is easy to use but missing the functionality that could make this set-up amazing.
I’ll ignore the frequent app crashes and bluetooth disconnects for now - but it’s really annoying when you lose your start or stop points and have to travel back down to the end of the slider again.
You can only program your stop and start points, no waypoints in-between. Give me full f-curve functionality on each axis with unlimited keyframes!
Let me save my programs! This would make it an effective motion control rig. It would also be nice to be able to copy stop points and use them as start points for complex moco transitions. I’ve heard this is possible with DP's “Graffik” software which is mentioned in their promo video but nowhere to be found on their website.
I am excited to see how this app is going to progress. There are a lot of possibilities, now I just wish the motors were capable of faster speeds, near vertical slides, and heavier cameras.
