This video is an overview of how to use GoTo frames/presets. GoTo Presets are an easy way to get your spectrum st4 hitting a mark on all 4 axis while in live mode.
The spectrum ST4 excels is meant to be driven around live! The first time you use it, you will find that it’s faster, smoother, and quieter than our previous products (or anything else on the market close to our class). Sometimes, while live shooting, you want to hit a predefined position and have it look cinematic. GoTo Presets is your answer. First, setting a target, time, and ramp associated with a GoTo Button on the spectrum. For example, set your circle button take 4 total seconds to move (pan/tilt/slide/focus) with 1 second or ramp or acceleration on both side. Once set you simple call that preset by hitting the circle button. Over the next 4 seconds the spectrum takes control and drives your rig to your target in a cinematic way. Setting additional preset positions / GoTo Frames allows for blending the ease and speed of a live shooting environment with the precision and timing of programmed points.
Programmed video shots for single or multiple passes are easy and a staple of many filmmakers.
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.
