This video is an overview of how to program a timelapse using the spectrum st4. If you shoot timelapse already, this is about as basic as it gets. If you don’t and want to see how easy it is to set up a moving timelapse shot eMotimo’s 4-axis, gaming-controller-driven flagship product, the spectrum st4. Don’t be fooled though, although eMotimo is known for timelapse, using the spectrum only for timelapse is just scratching the surface of its capabilities. The spectrum excels in live and recorded environments, enabling you with tools and techniques offered by no other product. Make sure you check out spectrum’s full capabilities
The spectrum ST4 excels is meant to be driven around live The first time you use it, you will find that its faster, smoother, and quieter than our previous (or anything else on the market close to our class).
Setting up a programmed timelapse is easy. You basically set your start and end points by moving your rig to a position on all 4 axis and locking it in as your start and end point. Then you define the parameters of the timelapse for interval and static time (amount of the time the rig stays still). Chose how many frames and how much ramp (smoothing for the start and end of the sequence) and go. The spectrum st4 triggers your camera and coordinates all motion from the brains in the main unit.
The eMotimo spectrum st4 is a 4-axis motion controller with pan and tilt built in. It is meant for cameras 12 lbs and lower. It integrates and drives 2 additional powered axis like slide and focus. It is controlled by either the included wireless gaming remote, or the navigation joystick on the side of the unit. With our built in 4 axis controller, you spend less time plugging in and routing wires and more time shooting.
For this video, the eMotimo spectrum st4 was paired to an iFootage Shark S1 slider in the above video enabling 3 axis (pan,tilt,slide). You can find more information about this slider or purchase the bundle.
