    Thank you Dorin.

    After the last V Mecha move, H Mecha moves 8 degrees unnecessarily and then returns to the initial position.
    Can you fix this?

        Thank you Dorin.

        Thanks to this, comfortable shooting is now possible.

        It was also helpful for shooting 135mm and 85mm.

          Hi Dorin,

          This is a "tweak" to a previous preset: 3 x rows of 8 images each, at -50 / 0 / +50 with a single zenith at +90 and 2 x nadirs at -90, 180 degrees apart (both zenith & first nadir from start position). Also, I need 2 x images captured at the start position - one is for Lr reference / white balance card. Also, if this makes a difference, but captured on Sony A6000 and AEB -3/0/+3 brackets:

          https://www.360imagery.co.uk/temp/A6...ander_10mm.pts

          This is the result (captured manually on NN3 Mk3 with Voigtlander 10mm, prior to Mecha dual-axis conversion):
          https://www.360imagery.co.uk/draft/A...0mm/index.html

          Thanks

          Stu

            are available now via [ More from Server..]
            please see the convention names regarding the starting and ending position.

            Note You need to start pano with click on [ 30 x RIGHT ] or [ 30 x LEFT ]

            in script there is 5: and 1:

            S^-90,1^5:-50,^1:>45,8^0,8^50,8^90>,^-90>180,^,^-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.

            You can also change 180 to 90 if want Nadirs to be at 90 apart instead of 180.
            1. Mecha it possible.

              I have finally tested this script and it only seems to do a single row of 30 (as per the instructions, clicking the [ 30 x RIGHT ] or [ 30 LEFT ] to start/. This doesn't seem to do 8 x 3 rows, 2 Z & 2 N - or am I doing something very wrong!

                First we need a check list
                1) What FW version MECHAs using, the number it is under Row top left
                2) When H MECHA is ON and idle, after you short press the power button, after, 10 seconds the LEDs should look like this

                Click image for larger version  Name:	DAC_Paired.png Views:	0 Size:	73.9 KB ID:	31566

                if the LEDs not look like this maybe they are not paired.
                3) if they look like this then on H MECHA enter
                one of these codes, depending on
                which start position the MECHAs are

                a) 1313< for Level position by pressing short [1] [3] [1] [ 3] [<]
                b) 1312< for Parked position
                c) 1321< for Raised position (opposite to Parked)


                Click image for larger version  Name:	DAC_Positions_Forum.png Views:	0 Size:	127.2 KB ID:	31567

                After entering the code MECHA will do a test pano multi-row. Please confirm that it does indeed.

                I can guide more after the info gained from this check-list.

                  Forgot to add maybe the solution:)

                  Those samples are available via [More from Server..] in Preset List
                  To execute one of them you need to select one in list, then click on [Load]
                  after a successful load, you'll see all the settings in preset, then you can click on [30 X RIGHT]
                  1. Mecha it possible.
                  2. Mecha it easy.
                  3. Mecha team up.

                    DorinDXN Could you please create a preset for this PTGui? Thank you.

                    The pattern is:

                    +72 deg, 9 shots, CW
                    +36 deg, 14 shots, CW
                    0 deg, 14 shots, CW
                    -36 deg, 14 shots, CW
                    -72 deg, 9 shots, CW

                    Total 60 shots

                      click on [RIGHT] for CW or [LEFT] for CCW

                      The script for Level start/end position

                      S=0,1=72_0,=_40,8=36,=_25.714,13=0,14=-36,14=-72,=_40,9=0

                      You can spot 72, 36, 0 ,-36 and -72 which corresponds to pitch
                      and 0, 40, 25.714, and again 40 which corresponds to yaw interval
                      0 is just for first photo which is at 0 yaw from the start position

                        DorinDXN Thank you. Why does it say "62 Shots" when I load the scripts? It should be 60 shots.

                          DorinDXN Also, some of the shots are being missed. I have the PC sync cable attached and the two lights on the Mecha are on signaling the shutter release but Mecha is not waiting for the camera to complete the exposure. It goes on to the next shots. How can I resolve this please?

                            The scrips ends the pano after the 60th shoots.

                            About shutter confirmation, in which MECHA was camera connected?

                            ATM, the shutter confirmation on DAC works only if camera is connected to H MECHA,
                            if was connected to H MECHA and MECHA didn't work,
                            please give more info about camera settings, exposure time, if bracketing used or not, so on..

                              I'll add shutter confirmation for DAC regardless of which MECHA is camera connected to, in a FW update today.

                                How do I use shutter confirmation?
                                AUX port? or something else? Shutterrelease cable is only a one way signal from MECHA to camera, right?
