Control Chronos 1.4 via Laptop
« on: July 10, 2019, 04:16:34 AM »
Hi,

Is there currently a way to control the Chronos 1.4 via a laptop remotely (e.g laptop is connected to the camera and then triggering/recording/saving video can be controlled via laptop).

In my experiment manually having to save video really slows the process.

Thanks

There is no fully supported way yet, but some "hacks" to do certain tasks are already possible with the later software versions using the USB/Ethernet connection in conjunction with various autosave modes, just look around on the forums here for some sample scripts etc. Or just wait for the official new interface to be released hopefully soonTM

We are working on an ethernet API update which will allow full control over Chronos through the ethernet port. This is scheduled to be out soon as an update, keep checking the beta thread in the forum for the update.
