  • C1E_02173 is published

    Addressed an issue regarding partial panorama and RW used in the same MSScript, e.g. (200),RW.
    The panorama was forced to full instead of partial.

      Added in /config "[x] Inverted" default off, to the specified rotator
      in case if, for a particular reason, the rotator needs to have all movements in opposite sense of rotation.
      Addressed an issue regarding motion compensation and the P1 rotator, the compensation was not working properly.

      • C1E_02175 is published. now are fewer stps in using the template in PTGui.

        The template for PTGui, exported from UI with [Template] button, contains now also the focal length,
        if the script was generated after input, say, 56mm, at [Shots] via custom.

          Added in /config
          Default Focal Length : 50.00 (used when not specified otherwise)
          Sensor Height (portrait) : 36.00
          Sensor Width (portrait) : 24.00
          Overlap on Height : 0.25
          Overlap on Width : 0.25
          MECHA supports now focal length from 10 to 1500mm (FF equiv.),
          with camera in Portrait or Landscape orientation.
          For now, if these values are changed, the script needs to be generated again,
          by entering at [Shots], via custom, the focal length, like 56mm

            Added in /config the Backlash value,if is need to be manually entered instead of automatic procedure,
            for E1, E2 rotator is around 21, is recommended to use automatic procedure for better result if are conditions meet to detect the small movements.

            Addressing an issue which causes a small drift when many number of photos per row are taken.
            For now, the issue is fixed for uSteps without + like 16, 32, 64 and 128
            the drift (which is around 0.5° at a full 360°) could manifest when uSteps with + are used like 16+32, 16+64 .. 64+128
            for these cases the issue will be fixed in the next FW updates.
            Until the complete fix, is recommended to use, say, 32 uStep instead of 32+128 uStep for increased precision.

              Optimization of the covering of the sphere, for automatic shooting patterns.
              The S-Language accepts now pause as float as well, not only as integer, e.g. 2.5: means 2.5 seconds

                Optimization of the delays in communications, for sessions made of hundreds of photos, the performance could be now doubled.

                When the "W:" delay is negative, "B:" delay is referenced to MCU's clock rather than added delay
                e.g for time lapse session if W:-0.001 sec and B:5 sec the result will be shots at every 5 seconds.
                If movements are executed, the value of B: needs to be large enough to cover the time take by move.

                • C1E_02181 is published.

                  When the "W:" delay is negative, a log file
                  /intervals.txt
                  will be produced with all intervals, in ms, between the triggers of the shutter done by MECHA.

                  C1E_02180
                  If in /config the "Arrow buttons Speed" is zero, pressing MECHA directional buttons, the rotator will start slow and accelerate afterwards if the button is kept pressed.
                  Useful for precise alignment done by the buttons of controller or IR remote.

                    MSS accepts now HZ (Horizontal Zig Zag) to indicate shooting in Horizontal Zig Zag pattern,
                    MECHA will change the rotation sense after each row.
                    e.g. for 50mm (FF equiv.)
                    SL,0x18,-28.03x18,-56.06x14, 28.03x18,56.06x14,ZZ,NN,HZ

                    e.g.partial panorama with explicit intervals for H (24°) and V (36°) in Horizontal Zig Zag
                    4 rows, 8 columns
                    SL,54x8^24,18x8^24,-18x8^24,-54x8^24,HZ

                      MECHA DAC, removed the beep when V-MECHA rotates,
                      to reduce the number of beeps when many vertical moves are used.
                      However, the beeps can be forced ON in /config of V-MECHA, if needed.

                          Added in /config Preferred MSS Pattern: SL,==,ZZ,NN
                          For automatic produced MSS scripts, this can be changed if instead of Start Level, Start Parked is preferred and single Zenith, e.g. SP,==,Z,NN
                          or SP,P==,Z,NN if a pause is wanted before 1st row.
                          MECHA will replace the == with the computed script.

                          C1E_02185
                          Backlash handling routines should be less noisier.
                          If, at direction changes by buttons, MECHA is still noisy or jumps, the value for backlash compensation is not properly set.
                          Ideally MECHA should make no weird noise and no sudden jumps when direction is changed

                            Addressed an issue regarding Horizontal Zig Zag ,HZ and odd number of rows,
                            the head wasn't returned to the initial position.
