      You want nadirs and zenith 180° apart because is something on sensor (or other reasons), the images will be 100% overlapped but rotated.

      Or you want a cross at N and Z, in which case they need to be at 90° apart, like 0 and 90?

          I always capture 2 x zeniths 180 degrees apart for "safety" in case direct sunlight creates lens flare, etc. So, it is just a precaution in case.....

              Until the exhaustive user guide for MECHA and MECHA DAC are published, please use this for pairing,
              https://forum.nodalninja.com/forum/p...tion#post30998

              then, any preset request will be available within a day via [More from Server..] just select it, load, test (for safety) and use.

              I'm currently compacting the S language, which is easy to understand but some parts used to need to be written again and again, now is more compact while keeping the intuitive aspect.

              Better to have a better language to be explained rather than a better guide to explain a complicated language, thus both, the guide and language, will be more easy to understand, until then is just need to ask for a preset and will be available.

                    Hi Dorin,

                    Can I get another preset done - for 15mm on FF: 6 round at -15 degrees, 1 x zenith (from 0) @ +90 and 2 x nadirs 180 degrees apart?

                    Here's the PTGui template: http://www.360imagery.co.uk/temp/55-80.pts

                    However, I'd like position 1 photo to be taken twice so I can use a white balance card as reference....


                    Thanks, Stu

                        please see the convention names regarding the starting and ending position.

                        Note You need to start pano with click on [ 12 x RIGHT ] or [ 12 x LEFT ]

                        in script there is 5: and 1:

                        5: means how many seconds are between the shoot at first position and the repeated one ta the same position,
                        you can change in 3: or other value, if you need more or less time to hold the WB card.
                        1: means the pause from then on, after each position, is like A:
                        you can change to 0: or to match with A: value.

                          Hi Dorin,

                          as this is the request thread I don't want to occupie the ...program/how to thread with my question regarding the V_Commander preset you made for me.

                          Please unpack this archive
                          DAC_V_Commander_2.zip
                          ZIP pass: Mecha
                          and import DAC_V_Commander_2.mps in real V MECHA
                          using [ Import ] button in UI, then select and load the preset with [Load] and you can save it wit the desired name with [Save]

                          then pair V MECHA as logic H MECHA in the way you know or use
                          1212< on real V MECHA then 12< on real H MECHA,
                          the LEDs will look reversed with 1 LED ON on V MECHA and 2 LEDs ON on H MECHA

                          Be sure MECHA V is in Level position
                          then launch the preset use [ 72 x Right ] button on UI of real V MECHA, for testing.

                          Is important right now is the way which MECHAs will move is close to what you want, not the speed or other aspects.
                          Meanwhile I was able to test the V_Commander setup. For now I tested it without camera, but I found that there is a unnecessary horizontal movement as first step. What would I have to change, that the vertical movement to the startposition would be the first movement?

                          kind regards
                          Frank

                            You can change the first -15 in 0, or other value.
                            I assume you "center" the camera then it should go horizontally from the center, then back to center at the end,
