[Papywizard] Alternate shooting area (text mode)

by fma38 » Fri Nov 28, 2008 12:42 pm

An alternate shooting area without graphical representation of the mosaic has been requested. When there are too much shooting position, this can be usefull to show less things.

Do you have any idea of the informations you would like to see, and how to present them?

Hi Frédéric!

I can´t see an advantage in that - it could be very small lines when shooting extremely many pictures, ok. But the alternative could be a blank plane or a plane filled with dots . . how could that be helpful?
Maybe to make the shooting area scrollable when it has to expand?

best, Klaus

I'm not sure but I think what people who requested this may have had in mind was a simple display of numbers - such as the row and column numbers of last or current or next shooting position plus something like number of shots taken/of total number in the matrix?

Yes, that's the idea: no graphical representation, but a summary of total positions, and current/next position to shoot...

In the Shooting position widget, you have both angle and index in the mosaic. I also added a widget with the total number of pictures for yaw and pitch.

Can/could you make the numbers LARGE and BOLD and black on a white ground so that they are easy to read outdoors at a glance?

They will be bold, as in other windows (this is done in the controller, not in the GUI editor).
