    sets A: as 3 sec, which is after the shoot.

      I want to wait for 3 seconds after moving 60 degrees to the second shooting position.

      I don't want to wait three seconds after the shoot.​

      • Maybe you just need the initial script

        S=0,
        =60_0,=_60,5
        =0_0,=_-60,5
        =-40_0,=_60,5
        =0_60​

        with
        [ B:3 sec ]
        in UI , that will produce a delay of 3 seconds after each movement and before each shoot.

          I am familiar with the function of "[B:3 sec].

          If "B:3 sec" is specified, it is not possible to rest for 3 seconds before the second cut.

          If shutter speed is "1 sec" and MECHA travel time is 0.5 sec,
          The next cut interval is 1.5 seconds.
          At this time, if "B:3sec" is specified, only "1.5sec" is waiting at the second shooting position.

          The shutter speed can always vary, and the travel time of the MECHA also varies with RPM and travel angle.
          I want to wait for 3 seconds at the second cut position at the value that changes like this
          Isn't there an easier way?

          I don't want to do arithmetic all the time.​

          • With B:3 will wait 3 seconds after each movement and before each shoot, please send me a video with MECHA doing otherwise or a table with actual shooting times, maybe I didn't understand what you asking for, or is a hidden bug.

              I sent the Mecha's working video and image file by mail.

              • Thanks for the files, I couldn't see the videos as they required login-in but the images and the logs I manged to reproduce were enough,
                I guess is DAC (didn't saw the videos) and not C2 due to that hiccup of 5924 ms,

                ATM it seems the normal behavior. the negative W: tells MECHA to have its clock absolute,
                1) with B:3 the movements and the exposure combined are bigger so it results in having one shoot at about 4.5 sec.
                2) with B:7.5, that value is large enough to cover the exposure and the movements combined and results in having one shoot at 7.5.

                I'll think more about this, if something can be done further,
                I'll be back..

                • Hi Dorin,
                  I have a probably very easy question, but not able to find the answer. I would like to make a panorama picture of a group of people, starting from the middle. Level, one picture center (to be sure to get the real center of the group), one picture left 20° , then one picture right symetrical. I can do the full level rotation and take a picture every 20°, but doesn't look very professional. Thanks for your help.

                  • With the newest/latest FW you can script with MSS in pitch & yaw format

                    the script will be

                    SL p0 y0 -20 20 RT

                    to break that down
                    SL mean start level
                    p0 y0 first shoot will be at pitch 0 and yaw 0
                    -20 then the next is at -20 yaw
                    20 the next is at (+)20 yaw
                    RT return to starting position

                    the above can be also written as
                    SL p0 y0 p0 y-20 p0 y20 RT
