Assuming you have rigged and tested your unit from this article, you are now ready to use the ST4.3 and set up your first shots.
An underutilized and powerful way to play is by using GoTo Frames. If you are unfamiliar with this functionality, spend 5 minutes on this article where we talk through how they work and how they are set.
Additionally, brush up on how to control the additional motors - its here.
Ok, now that you know the basics of setting up a GoTo Frame on the ST4, using the additional axis of the ST4.3 hooked to two Tilta Nucleus M motors is easy.
- Make sure you that if you have the Tilta Hand Controller, it is off. (On an in Slave Mode is ok too)
- From the main menu, Live Motion, right Dpad until you see Circle GoTo Preset.
- Using the remote, move the rig live to a target position for all axis (Pan/Tilt/Slide/Focus/Zoom/Turntable). Lock this into the position and make sure you are no longer highlighted on this field.
- Leave default timing (time to target and ramp)
- Move the rig to a new position on all axis (Pan/Tilt/Slide/Focus/Zoom/Turntable). Let the rig come to a stop
- Hit the Circle button on the PS4 remote.
All axis will move from the position you are to the target position in a coordinated way. Simple as that.
For bonus points, use the Dpad to move right to set the Triangle Preset as a new position with new timing values. Then bounce between this points by hitting Triangle and Circle on the remotes to get a feel for how GoTo Frames will look.
