You need a big budget for a full array, however, you can achieve a great effect with a smaller number of cameras.
Using just a small number of cameras, individual elements can be photographed, time stretched and composited together to yield a '3D like' environment.
Note how there is a perspective change on the individual elements during the 'fly through'.
This separates it from a conventional 'cardboard cut out' 3D camera move that has no perspective change at all and yields a more realistic effect.
The sample to the right uses just 10 cameras.
Each model is photographed separately and a single 2D background plate completed the scene.
This approach is efficient at the time of production since it uses a small number of cameras, and, is efficient in post production since there are less frames to work on.
From the 10 camera frames, 250 frames are created to create a 10 second virtual track.
All elements are photographed against a chroma screen.
Mark provides all services as a turnkey solution, or, you can comp together.
Mark takes on the role of 'supervisor' for this effect as a knowledge of how to shoot and post produce for the effect is necessary.
Cameras are tethered to a computer.
Rates start from $3k per day for production plus post production.
The mini rig was used on the opening titles of 'Offspring'.
