How is it working?
I can't find a good explanation in the manual - or i'm blind ;)

Markus,
You have plenty of reasons to said that. Sorry.
The user manual is a work in progress due the fast developing software and the addition of new features every week make any user manual release obsolete after a couple of weeks.

Adam is working in the user manual at this moment.

Here are some tips that hope will help you.
1- to load a few points or to edit current picpoints presets:
Use the virtual joystick in the screen to set a yaw,pitch point (you can type the numbers or move the axis by touching/click and hold in the joystick area).
then insert the point or set the point in the preset section.
2- to load large amounts of picpoints:
create a table with two columns.
A spreadsheet app like Excel is the best option to do the job, but you can use other text editor in your computer or tablet.
With a spreadsheet, you can create complex tables with formulas , copy and paste from other apps and many other things.
If you prefer a text editor, remember separate the yaw and pitch points with a ","

- Save your file. if you use Excel, use "save as CSV" or comma delimited format. this is one of the most acceptable and simple formats. You don't need to convert your data to other format or use an external tool to format it.

- Import your file in the preset and save your new picpoints.
- Execute or run your preset as usual (like you execute your mosaics).

Sorry for this basic introduction. A better explanation with images and some examples will be released soon.

Javier,

thank you for your explanation.

I'LL wait for further information. Adam will perhaps make a video with more information about picpoints.

At the moment i use it as a quick tool for moving the head into it's home position ;)

To move the head to the home position (0,0) you can set 0,0 in the virtual joystick.
the head will move to this position. (virtual joystick need to be linked to head)
Optionally you have an option in the smart calibration to quickly set the current position as the home position if you want.

Your suggestion is accepted and we will include a button to move to home position in this smart calibration menu.

Javier,

i think it's much faster for working to put the Home-Button into the menu of the virtual joystick. One push and the head moves in the saved position. I think it's more easier than going to the smart calibartion menu to set the head at home (I'm using panoshoot for testing with a mobile devive yet).

Got it. You are right.
Thank you
