Use simulations of real cameras to virtually shoot your film. Adjust aperture, ISO, shutter speed, color temperature, and more - just as you would on set.
Backlot also has an incredible collection of tripods, cranes, dollies, and assorted rigs to help you capture your exact feel.
Create beautiful shots with Backlot’s wide range of cinema lighting equipment.
Starting with anything from a fresnel to an LED panel, simply place your light within the scene and adjust its power for a physically based recreation of on-set lighting. You can even attach barndoors, color gels, and diffusers to better shape your light.
Create your previz just as you edit your films.
Our intuitive keyframe system allows you to animate movement and properties for every camera, light, character, and prop on set. You can even adjust keyframe smoothing for full control over your animation.
Take your animations a step further with thousands of custom animation clips that can be applied to your characters. Easily loop and transition animations in your timeline with no added work.
Choose a time, date, and location - and Backlot will recreate the outdoor lighting conditions. You can also adjust advanced features such as cloud coverage and fog.
