How to schedule consecutive timelapses?

Post by gamerraf » Mon Mar 24, 2014 9:31 am

Hi there,
Is it possible to schedule consecutive timelapse sessions with different pan/tilt settings and immediately one after another without interruption (using the Galileo)?

I noticed in the timelapse session settings, you can specify to start immediately, or X seconds after tap, or on a specified date and time. I tried to select a date and time, which triggers the countdown "after tap" but that's the problem. You have to "frame and start" the timelapse session and tap start for the schedule settings go into effect, and there's no way to save that scheduled session or back out of that session to set up another scheduled session.

If this isn't possible, please add this as a feature request.

Please expand on the session settings to allow saving a scheduled timelapse session or for a certain timelapse session to start X seconds or immediately after "project 1, 2 or 3, etc".

This would be extremely useful and time saving and would allow you to capture a timelapse session that pans horizontally, then capture another session right after that in the same spot with no pan/tilt settings, and then another session with only tilt settings but in a different direction, or something similar to this. It would really open up the possibilities of the Galileo and the app itself.

Similarly, I've long wanted a "que" of scheduled timelapse settings to run in consecetive order. And/or a "repeat" setting.

Que Example
Session 1: Start on 2014/05/14 at 06:00
End on 2014/05/14 at 18:00
Session 2: Start on 2014/05/15 at 06:00
End on 2014/05/15 at 18:00
Session 3: Start on 2014/05/16 at 06:00
End on 2014/05/16 at 18:00

Repeat Example

Start on 2014/05/14 from at 06:00 to 18:00
Repeat until 2014/05/16

Both great suggestions. I would appreciate que and repeat functionality also.
