How is Cinefade setup and operated?
Briefly, once an iris motor is attached and calibrated the Static Polariser and the Motorised Polariser are inserted into the matte box. An LBUS cable connects the Motorised Polariser to the cforce RF motor or to the camin and calibration happens automatically.
Using the hand unit, the lens is mapped into the system if it hasn't been done already. The system is now ready to go.
Set the exposure, which becomes the position of deep depth of field and press the User button to activate the Cinefade. The iris motor is now slaved to the variable ND filter and the depth of field can be adjusted.
