I want to make a camera slider for time-lapse (probably not the first one) and I'm a bit stuck with the flow I'm setting up.
I want a 2-motion slider, where one motor will slide the unit and the other motor will rotate the cam to a certain point over time.
Is it possible to set a begin and endpoint for a stepper by measuring it's current position? I'll try to explain...
The setup now is that the cam will move left to right over a period of time for the time lapse. That's not difficult. I would like that I can set the from-to rotation of the cam somehow.
I thought something like: - A +/- button in the startpostion to set the motor2 zero point. So the cam might be rotated from the start.
move the dolly to the left side to the point where the rotation should be done (could be the very end)
rotate the motor2 again with +/- buttons and save that location
return the holy back to start position and start the sequence
Is that possible? So in a way, motor2 has a new zero-point at the start position, and has an endpoint of x° at the end position.
Can I 'record' that end position? Thanks
