MOTION MOUNT
INTRODUCTION
The RED MOTION MOUNT ® is a revolutionary and adjustable lens mount system for your camera. The MOTION
MOUNT integrates a global shutter, temporal anti-aliasing soft shutter, and variable neutral density (ND) system. This
enables on-the-fly shutter adjustments to reduce motion blur and temporal aliasing. The ND filter also includes a linear
polarizer and IR filter for improved image color and contrast.
NOTE: HDRX® is not available when the MOTION MOUNT Shutter Type is set to Soft or Square.
NOTE: The MOTION MOUNT is compatible with RED EPIC ® , SCARLET ® , WEAPON ® , RED EPIC- W ® , and
SCARLET-W cameras.
Figure: MOTION MOUNT Ti PL (Left), MOTION MOUNT Ti Canon (Right)
VARIABLE ND FILTER
The electronic variable ND filter provides adjustable optical density for the camera. The amount of optical density
varies based on the active shutter type. Adjust the ND value using a touchscreen or user keys, without having to
change physical filters.
Soft/Square Shutter: Range is 0.48 to 1.20 (1.60 to 4.00 stops)
ND Only: Range is 0.48 to 2.40 (1.60 to 8.00 stops)
NOTE: While the MOTION MOUNT is installed, the adjustable electronic ND filter provides a minimum light loss of
1.60 stops (0.48 optical density).
IR FILTER AND LINEAR POLARIZATION
The MOTION MOUNT incorporates an IR-cut filter and new color science, providing accurate and natural color over a
wide range of color temperatures. The IR- cut filter ensures rich, deep shadows in your shots and minimizes IR
contamination at high ND levels, without the need for a separate hot mirror.
The built-in linear polarizer improves image quality by increasing contrast and reducing unwanted glare from light that
passes through the MOTION MOUNT to the image sensor.

RED MOTION MOUNT OPERATION GUIDE
SOFT SHUTTER
The MOTION MOUNT Soft shutter performs temporal anti-aliasing in your footage, eliminating sampling rate issues
caused by temporal aliasing. This is commonly referred to as the “wagon-wheel effect”. Effectively, the MOTION
MOUNT improves your images and footage by ensuring smooth and natural motion. As its name implies, the Soft
shutter “softens” the edges of blur, resulting in crisp, smooth motion, and pans.
For more information about temporal anti- aliasing, see the Temporal Aliasing with Cinema article available at
www.red.com/learn/red-101/cinema-temporal-aliasing.
SQUARE SHUTTER
The MOTION MOUNT Square shutter, also referred to as “global shutter,” eliminates rolling shutter artifacts, such as
partial illumination caused by strobes and flashing light. The global shutter ensures uniform exposure throughout your
image, regardless of strobes or motion.

OUT-OF-FOCUS FIELD MODIFICATION
Use of “ND Only” with a high ND value and wide aperture may cause unwanted results, including distortion or flaring
in the out-of-focus field. In some instances, vignetting may also occur at the edge of the image. This is typical when
using lenses with smaller image circles. RED recommends that you do not exceed 4.00 stops of ND when shooting
with wide apertures.
NOTE: For instance, if the MOTION MOUNT is set to 8.00 stops of ND, and the lens is set to T1.8, instead of the
normal circular bokeh pattern, the out-of-focus area may have unwanted or intense flare.

RED MOTION MOUNT OPERATION GUIDE
AVOID FLARE AND DISTORTION
Use the following tips to avoid or dramatically reduce flare and distortion.
Increase T-Stop to T4.0 or greater: Increase the T-Stop to T4.0 or greater to dramatically reduce bokeh
distortion.
Reduce ND setting: Reduce the ND setting to five (5) stops or less to produce a more symmetrical bokeh.
Install a traditional ND filter: Use a traditional ND filter if a shot requires a wide aperture (to limit depth-of-field)
and also requires eight (8) stops of ND. Adjust the MOTION MOUNT to four (4) stops of ND and install an ND filter.
This removes bokeh distortion and flare, and also enables the use of the Soft and Square shutter types.
NOTE: Effects of flare and distortion are negligible at apertures greater than T4.0. Flare and distortion may vary based
on the lens. RED recommends testing each lens in conjunction with the MOTION MOUNT before an important shoot.
NOTE: Selecting an ND value over 4.00 stops in “ND Only” results in the ND value on the main screen overlay turning
yellow. The following message displays on the MOTION MOUNT menu: “High ND with wide apertures may cause
bokeh asymmetry”.

SOFT SHUTTER
The MOTION MOUNT Soft shutter is a breakthrough for cinematography, using a liquid crystal shutter to solve CMOS
rolling and global shutter problems. Different from a standard global shutter, the Soft shutter causes the liquid crystal
to rapidly ramp from opaque to clear in a rounded wave. This exposes the sensor to light, taking many discrete
captures of the scene. This technique eliminates the effects of temporal aliasing and reduces rolling shutter artifacts.

9 5 5 - 0 0 1 3 , R EV - N | 2 3
RED MOTION MOUNT OPERATION GUIDE
TEMPORAL ALIASING ADVANTAGES
Shows correct direction of rotation of cyclical motion, such as rotating propellers.
Softens blur while preserving clarity.
Reduces judder while panning.
Renders movement accurately and naturally.
Reduces flickering without requiring continuous or synchronized lighting.
ROLLING SHUTTER ADVANTAGES:
Reduces striping or tearing artifacts from uncontrolled strobes and flashes.
Reduces skew, also known as the “jello” effect, so that fast-moving subjects are not angled or sheared.
Ensures that images are not blurred or wobbled due to rapid camera movements.
SOFT SHUTTER FRAME RATES
You can use the MOTION MOUNT shutter at frame rates up to 109.98 fps, but the Soft shutter is most effective at
reducing temporal aliasing artifacts and rolling shutter artifacts at lower frame rates.
SOFT SHUTTER ANGLE
The Soft shutter angle ranges from 62.1° to 194.4°. The available shutter angle range at any given time depends on the
selected frame rate.
For the most natural and realistic motion, use a Soft shutter angle of 194.4°. Then, adjust the shutter angle if
necessary.

SQUARE SHUTTER
The MOTION MOUNT Square shutter is a global shutter that provides consistent, full illumination for every frame. The
MOTION MOUNT fundamentally changes the way your camera exposes for motion, reducing skew and smear
artifacts.
The MOTION MOUNT Square shutter assists in the following ways:
Reduces striping or tearing artifacts from uncontrolled strobes and flashes.
Reduces skew, also known as the “jello” effect, so that fast-moving subjects are not angled or sheared.
Ensures images are not blurred or wobbled due to rapid camera movements.

SQUARE SHUTTER FRAME RATES
The Square shutter operates at frame rates up to 109.98 fps; however, the Square shutter is most effective at reducing
rolling shutter artifacts at lower frame rates.
SQUARE SHUTTER ANGLE
The Square shutter angle ranges from 62.1° to 180°. The available shutter angle range at any given time depends on
the selected frame rate.
For the most natural and realistic motion in Square shutter mode, start at a shutter angle of 180°. Adjust the shutter
angle from there as needed.

MOTION MOUNT
COMPATIBILITY
The RED MOTION MOUNT ® Ti PL and MOTION MOUNT Ti Canon® enable you to mount most PL cinema lenses
and Canon EF compatible lenses to your camera.
WARNING: Using lenses, adaptors, or other accessories that are not compatible with the MOTION MOUNT may
damage the internal glass or other elements in the lens mount.
WARNING: Lenses, adaptors, and other PL-mount devices with mounting elements that protrude more than 27.73 mm
behind the PL mounting flange are not compatible with the MOTION MOUNT.
NOTE: Any damage to the MOTION MOUNT Ti PL or the camera system caused by using incompatible lenses
(including non-standard PL lenses) or devices is not covered under warranty.
COMPATIBILITY REQUIREMENTS
Some lenses are NOT compatible with the MOTION MOUNT due to the liquid crystal glass and shape of the baffle
inside the mount.
Refer to the following diagram to determine if the maximum protrusion depth and maximum protrusion diameter of a
particular lens is compatible with the MOTION MOUNT. If any of the protruding lens elements extend beyond these
dimensions, the lens IS NOT COMPATIBLE.
DO NOT use lenses that have mounting elements that exceed the following values:
Maximum Protrusion Depth: 27.73 mm
Maximum Protrusion Diameter at a Protrusion Depth of 14.20 mm: 54.00 mm
Maximum Protrusion Diameter at a Protrusion Depth of 27.73 mm: 22.00 mm
WARNING: Use of a lens that extends beyond these dimensions may damage the MOTION MOUNT.
