Bruno,

Could-you send me your "original preset" (the one who isn't working) I will have a look to find the reason why it is working ...

Olihar,

In Timelapse, the current frames per seconds are +/- 1 frame every 5 seconds..
So at the minimum Merlin speed (astronomical rate), 48 frames will cover a displacement of 1° ...
I think that, maybe except for "Macro timelapse" (in the sense of macrophotography timelapse), this Merlin capability cover 99,99 % of the timelapse applications !
I don't know today systems more capable then the Merlin or Milapse (Meade DS2000) ....
Do you know others systems able to do better ???

Hi Claude,
Merlin is the first and only mount of such kind I ever bought or used.
I thing is great, I bought it specifically to do a 180º timelapse over 12 hrs, to start with, later I would like to put it to use for gigapan and motion controlled movements with my EX3
(together with the A/B stored capability of this camera, it can change zoom/focus/aperture/WB,etc between 2 points).
I send you to your e-mail the preset described on http://www.autopano.net/forum/t6748-papywizard-timelapse-preset-generator at 00:27:10
do you use Mac?

Hi Bruper,

See my mail for your preset problem ...
No, I don't use a Mac ! :rolleyes:

There are some interesting things happening over at http://openmoco.org

I have made a prototype dolly, using a stepper and the Arduino.

There have been some discussions going on and you should easily be able to do 150 steps per 1 deg or more.

Would you be able to throw up a preset maker that has a curve movement. say starting at 0.1 going up to 0.5 and down back to 0.1 I guess just as proof of concept if ever to be possible to do smaller then 0.1

I will try to modify a standard preset for timelapse with 0.1 steps, by deleting some steps, therefore moving the the head in incremental steps like this to do an acceleration:
<pict yaw="+0.0" pitch="+0.0"/>
<pict yaw="+0.1" pitch="+0.0"/>
<pict yaw="+0.2" pitch="+0.0"/>
<pict yaw="+0.3" pitch="+0.0"/>
<pict yaw="+0.4" pitch="+0.0"/>
<pict yaw="+0.6" pitch="+0.0"/>
<pict yaw="+0.8" pitch="+0.0"/>
<pict yaw="+1.0" pitch="+0.0"/>
<pict yaw="+1.4" pitch="+0.0"/>
<pict yaw="+1.8" pitch="+0.0"/>
<pict yaw="+2.0" pitch="+0.0"/>
etc., when I finally manage to get the system running

Burper, I think this is already available http://www.autopano.net/forum/t6748-papywizard-timelapse-preset-generator which you already know of. With permission there is a live version on my site here http://www.photosbykev.com/wordpress/tips-and-trick/merlin-preset-generator/

No Photosbykev, the preset generator on http://www.autopano.net/forum/t6748-pap … -generator, although fantastic and the absolute base (for me) doesn't let you do an increase or decrease of Yaw/Pitch steps. If you check closely, you will notice that after yaw 0.4 is jumping to 6 etc. doing incremental acceleration (which I don't know if it would work any way)

sorry bruper, I did quickly scan the preset code but missed the acceleration ramp

The backlash of the mechanics in arround 0.3°, so asking it to move 0.05°... And AFAIR, Papywizard won't move the head for positions < 0.1° (I'm not sure)...

I am having problems loading preset into papywizard. I am using mac osX version 10.6.6. Using the pw timelapse generator I adjust my settings, save the file as 600_1_.1_.1.xml. When I open papywizard click on File>Import Preset File...>600_1_.1_.1.xml>open. Nothing happens. Nothing new appears in the preset>Name tab. If anyone has the answer to this question it would be a great help. Thanks everyone. I can't wait to start making timelapse video.

The preset file must use UTF-8 encoding. On a Windows PC you could use Notepad to save with this encoding. Dunno what to use on a Mac.

I would also suggest a more conventional filename without all the _ and . characters.

I encoded the file with UTF-8. It saves the file as .txt. In pw I select the Preset tab. Go File>Import Preset File>. The Import Preset File window appears. When it opens the Files of type: tab, it defaults to XML files. When I try to open a XML file nothing happens. No new settings in the Name tab. When I open a .txt file a Error window opens that says, (Can't import preset file junk after document element: line 2, column 12). Any help would be appreciated.

I am having the exact same issue as CUATHEGAME above. I am on OSX 10.6.8. I just cant figure out why. I save the xml as it says it should be in the above guide but when trying to load the preset in PW noting happens. If anyone could help i would very much appreciate it.
Cheers

Hi,

It sounds to me an issue with OSX and Papywizard around xml parser. Can you enable the debug messages in Papywizard and post it debug messages here?

The following xml worked fine last weekend in Windows. I don't have access to Mac to test it. Let me know how it goes with the following xml.

Code: Select all
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<papywizard>

    <preset name="120_1_0.2_0">
        <tooltip>
            TimeLapse preset for 120 positions with 0.2 pitch increment and 0 yaw increment

So sorry in the absurdly late reply. Life got in the way of my hobby :)

Well I've tried every way I can think of including the code you posted above but I can't get the timelapse preset to work with the MBP 10.6.8.

Doesn't look like it possible :(

Hope something comes along soon that enables this preset on OSX!

Did the android port get off the ground?

All the best
