  • Mecha - Dual Axis

    Is there any way to get Mecha-V to move before taking the 1st set of pictures?

    Cheers
    Tony

    This feature will be added today.
    Currently V-MECHA receives commands after H-MECHA moves, while is possible to do some tricks like zero move of H-MECHA then move V-MECHA automatically is better to have dedicated command for that, was planned for some time (V-MECHA to get out from the parking position)
    It will be added in a FW update available today.
    1. Mecha it possible.
    2. Mecha it easy.
    3. Mecha team up.

      It is up now in

      For MECHA DAC, added commands for start from a parked position of V MECHA,
      if the list of angles for V MECHA starts with "P^" V MECHA will rotate the angle specified then the shooting of set follows.
      e.g. P^-90,... will mean -90 deg. movement in P convention (like in PTGui with camera with grip up) then the sequence will be executed, (useful when MECHA DAC is parked and camera is oriented up, usual for transportation and lens cleaning) so the camera will rotate to horizontal position then will do the sequence.
      P^90,... is suited when camera is oriented toward nadir (spirit level in frame, like after vertical mounting on horizontal base, good time to double-check the NPP settings left-right)
      P^-90,-45,45,1:90,-90,90
      the above is a sequence for doing 8 shoots around 3 rows (+-45 deg.) + Z + N and started from parked position and ends up in parking position (last 90)
      -45,45,1:90,-90,0
      is the same but starts and ends in horizontal position (0 deg. pitch)

          HI Everyone.

          When shooting Time Lapse or Video,

          Can I specify the rotation speed of H and V separately? (ex: H = 12 RPM, V = 1 RPM)

          Can't move H and V at the same time with different moving angle?

            You can have different speed in H vs V by setting the speed as fixed setting in /config of each, or only for V.

            There is the next FW update, work in progress, which will be published at the same time as the new DAC guide,
            As novelty, it allows the move in sync. or at different speed for V and H at the same time,

            Is possible even now but better to wait for the new FW.

            Will be very easy to do some cool video panning,
            I'll produce a video along as example.

            Cool stuff ahead :)
