ST Maps

Receive lens distortion data on demand

Multiply Maps

CinCraft Mapper is conceptualized, made and programmed by the creators of the optics, which gives the user confidence that the results obtained in both maps (distortion and vignetting) are very accurate and reliable.

As a former VFX supervisor I know how tough it is, to take care of every detail you need for a rock-solid distortion workflow. CinCraft Mapper would have saved days on set and in post-production, which can now be used for more creative freedom.
