I uploaded a new release, but it is mainly some fixes and changes in the 'Pololu Servo' plugin, for Phil's tests.

This release also uses a new bluetooth module, which should work on MacOS. Jeremy hasn't make tests yet, but I hope it will work :cool:

Hello Frederic.\ Just back fro a interstate visit and tried 2.1.5 version.
Uninstalled older 2.1.3 ver and installed 2.1.5.
Noticed that defaults were for simulation - Tried that setting and got IMMEDIATE CONNECTION - (Not really connected. Blue light on Tronisoft still flashing)
The head will not move by the arrow keys but papywizard goes throught the shoot sequence for 3 or more images, Screen display indicates head moving to popsition)

Tried Merlin/orion plugin and after trying to connect this error message appears.

The Simulation plugin does what Papywizard did when not connected.

For the Merlin plugin, could you send the log?

Hi Frederic, Here is the log for when Papywizard 2.1.5 tries to make a connection with the Merlin/orion plugin.
I'm using a sony Vaio notebook XP 32 bit with 1 Gb ram SP 3

Are you sure you send the entire log? I don't see any connection here... Also, don't forget to switch the logger level to 'trace'...

I uploaded the release 2.1.6, with the alternate drive method for Merlin/Orion plugin (which increases the speed for small moves).

Frederic,

What is the parameter 'Inertia angle' for?

Why/when would you choose to change it?

Good question :)

The alternate drive method first starts the head in the correct direction, as if the user had pressed the arrow key (not exactly, as I select a specific speed). Then, it periodically monitors the position. As soon as the head is at the target position less the inertia angle, it stops it (as if the user had released the arrow). Last, it uses the Merlin/Orion internal goto function to reach the target position with usual accuracy. So, this parameter is the angle the head moves after it has been asked to stop. It mainly depends on the inertia of the system.

I plan to automatically adjust it while moving (the first move will use the default value), and use a different value for both directions (this is especially usefull for the pitc haxis, with a heavy camera/lens).

I could also add the speed as user param, but I think it will be too complex for the user to adjust, for a really small gain.

OK thanks - I think I understand it.

So for the time being I shoukd just leave it at the defaulkt value?

Or are there partiular scenarios - camera/lens steup or sometging else - where I shoukd chnage it.

I think you are suggesting that heavy camera/lens combos may benefit, or require?, a larger value?

I guess it will also be applied when using presets?

Frederic, I got yur post and noticed that Andrew has Version 2.1.6, so Rather than be at odd with him I downloaded 2.1.6 and went throught the instalation procedure. (Removed 2.1.5 via windows Control panel)

Left everyting as downloaded and tried to connect. The message on the bottom of the window INSTANTLY says "Connection Established" But it is not so.
Log was set to trace and here it is

Frederic, as a follow up - I disconnected the power to the head and then asked Papywizard to connect - SAME message and obviously the connection could not be made.
i wait for your next suggestion,John

John,

I looked up what hardware you use to host PW.

I think you are using a Sony Vaio notebook XP 32 bit with 1 Gb ram SP 3 - is that correct?

Have you had an earlier version of PW running OK on that system? If so which version of PW?

Are you using a Bluetooth connection or a wired serial connection?

If a BT connection what interface hardware are you using for the Merlin?

FWIW I have PW 2.1.6-1 running OK on an old IBM Thinkpad T23 (1GHz PIII with 1GB RAM) under Windows 2000. I use a USB BT device (Bluenext BN-01) on the laptop and a Tronisoft interface (TTL-RS232+RS232-BT) kit on the Merlin. The USB BT device is configured as a virtual serial port and the PW driver used is the Serial driver.

As you installed a new dev. release, you have to select again the Merlin/Orion plugins in the preference dialog. I think you are using the Simulation ones

PS: only stable-to-stable installations tries to keep you preferences...

Andrew and Frederic,
Andrew- I think you are using a Sony Vaio notebook XP 32 bit with 1 Gb ram SP 3 - is that correct? --- YES
Andrew - Have you had an earlier version of PW running OK on that system? If so which version of PW? --- Version 2.0.0.1
Andrew - Are you using a Bluetooth connection or a wired serial connection? --- Bluetooth connection using a dongle
I use a USB BT device (Bluenext BN-01) on the laptop and a Tronisoft interface (TTL-RS232+RS232-BT) kit on the Merlin. The USB BT device is configured as a virtual serial port and the PW driver used is the Bluetooth driver. (Same setup that you have but uses Bluetooth driver)

Frederic, I tried lots of different settings in the Preferences Tab before sending the log, and all were non productive.

I thought that it might be me that is at fault and so I reinstalled the bluetooth dongle and the merlin Head. I checked that a connection was made using and older version of Papywizard (2.0.0.1) and everything was OK.
Not trusting that I did ecverything correctly I repeated the procedure above on My desktop. It worked also.
As a third test I repeated the procedure on my ASUS eee pc (used to drive the head and software in the field) and it worked also.
SO I have three computers that are running Papywizard 2.0.0.1 successfully.
When i try any version of Papywizard using Plugins they fail.

I like version 2.0.0.1 (Uses the shoot.py) file in the application data folder. I know that the plugin option is one that will allow for users to modify the operation to suit their needs. (Mine was to be able to uses Papywizard to shoot single tile mosaics and DSLR remote to shoot bracketed tile mosaics)

Whilst not being a programmer and certainly NOT critizing you work (Excellent in fact) i believe that there is something in the connection and shhot module that is faulty OR MY system (Standard windows XP on a simple laptop) is not communicating with the Merlin/orion head. Although It does so in earlier versions of Papywizard.

To try and cut through any confusion I send the log of version 2.1.6 - obtained by starting Papywizard - setting preferences to SIMULATION and then selecting the connect option - Then saved the log and attached here.

Frederic, - Further on ther connection problem - When using ver 2.0.0. I notice that in the config tab the software defaults to bluetooth connection 00:50:C2:58:55:B9 I change it to 00:12:6F:02:21:60 --Merlin and connection is ok
Maybe that in version 2.1.6 The connection defaults to 00:50:C2:58:55:B9 and this is the fault.
I cannot find any way to change this iv V 2.1.6 so is this the problem.

Yes, you have to use your own BT device address. To change it, open the Hardware -> Preferences menu, go to the Drivers tab, and set the correct BT address.

Then, choose the Merlin/Orion plugins for the 2 axis and the shutter, check that they all use the bluetooth driver (use the Configure... button on each plugin), and then try to connect.

It should work.

Hi Frederic,

Since you have changed the place of changing the "Material configuration" (from the bottom-body of Papywizard to the menu bar...) this has become also a little bit complicated ....

The first time I have try the new version, I was really "lost" in my habits ... looking desesperately in the "Configuration" button at the bottom of the screen !
I must say that generally, I act "intuitive" and I don't take the time to read the documentation !

This is my "dark side" of the KISS principle ! :lol:

Conclusion, the most possibilities you introduce, the most complicated ! :/

Maybe, the layout should be reviewed ?

I think the new layout is fine once you know where to look.

It's most likely to be an 'issue' for those of us who have used pre plug-in versions (I had similar problems when first using V2 of APP/APG wher the config. layouts have also changed from V1).

Given the range and scope of possibilities opened up with the plug-in architecture I don't see how Frederic could have made the layout any more compact for configuration of head harwdare and drivers. I find that it's quite consistent and logical once you get used to the change.

Hi Andrew,

Yes the layout is fine ! :)

But, if we are making some brainstorming, whe can continue to improve and make it "more intuitive" ? :D

I have to say that I'm not totally satisfied with the new layout : some of the configs should not be in the Preferences dialog. This is especially the case with the shutter params: bracketing, time value and so are definitly photographer params, and should be in the Configuration dialog. But as all plugins don't have the same params, it is not easy.

I may have to split the configuration gui of the plugins in several parts: one to be called from the Preferences dialog, the other one called from the Configuration dialog. Or, better, the Main tab of the shutter plugin should be the Shutter tab of the config dialog (each plugin bringing its own content).

What do you think (hope I'm clear)?

Sounds OK.

Andrew and or Frederic.
I have version 2.1.6 working on the Vaio and asus PC machines. The problem seems to be with the USB ports and the Plug and Play system.
On the vaio I have to use the Bluetooth devices window to remove the Merlin connection and replace it with a new merlin connection. Then the connection is made according to the plugins selected. I have only tested Merlin/Orion -Yaw,Pitch and shutter) and Merlin/Orion for Yaw and Pitch , shutter = tethered (The tethered option is for Breeze systems DSLR Remote Pro)
Any idea why I have to do this each time on the vaio but not on the EEEpc

Mmmm, I'm sorry, but I don't see what can cause such troubles...

BTW, I uploaded a new release (2.1.8), with a new layout for plugins/configuration...
