Motion Control comes to AngryPuppet!
When I was setting up for this shot, I found one more big negative about the CD-R based camera I am using. Since I built the set on its side, the camera would have to be on its side, and for some reason it can't record images to the little CD-R unless it is right side up. I thought I was going to have to borrow another camera, but Dick solved this problem by building an extra step into the moco move. After each exposure is triggered manually, the camera rotates 90-degrees to let the camera save, pauses five seconds, and the rotates back and moves to the next increment. See the action here:

Dick didn't want to be pictured on my blog- so here is a representative blur:
