    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,

    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

    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:

    S^-90,1^5:-15,^1:>60,6^-90>180,^,^90>,^-90

    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,

    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

    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.

    WOW! Perfect - thanks Dorin! I am now waiting on my delivery of my second MECHA so I can build my dual axis rig - and then I need to work out how to implement the preset on the MECHA - is there a workflow / tutorial on using 2 x MECHAs on dual-axis?

    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.....

    Looking on it, the preset will be ready in say, one hour-two.

    Hi all. I would appreciate it if someone could code a preset based on this PTS file: https://www.360imagery.co.uk/temp/3_rows_8_Z_D.pts
    It's 3 rows of 8 images (0 / +50 / -50) with 2 x zeniths from 0 & 180 and 2 x nadirs from 0 & 180. (make sense?)
