Die IN-motion entwickelte für den eigenen Motion Control Camera-Kran eine einzigartige Software, die es uns ermöglicht, real gefilmtes Material mit einer 3-D-Welt zu verschmelzen - I am not actually quite sure what they are trying to do here?

Motion Control Camera-Kran = motion control camera crane


Explanation:
The word "motion" is a necessary accompaniment for the word "control", then the compound modifier "motion control" tells us what sort of camera crane it is. The motion of the camera crane is controlled by the software. It is a camera crane (developed by IN-motion), controlled by software (also developed by IN-motion), that allows the camera to film real objects or people while the crane is moving in relationship to the movements in the 3-D background (in the computer) AND in relationship to the movements of the objects or people being filmed, thus giving us the possibility of a three-movement, three-dimensional montage. This sort of thing has been done often in Sci-Fi films of all types, probably also including Star Trek, for all I know (not having had the time to watch such rubbish), but the IN-motion concept must be something new or they would not be boasting about it.
