helicon remote with wemacro rail.

Post by resindog63 » 28.11.2018 07:51

Hi ok i have the helicon remote and wemacro rail, now i know you can use the helicon remote with the wemacro rail i have connected them and it shows the wemacro is connected in the camera box(top right). but it only lets me do a few commands, the camera view shows up on helicon, it lets me do a single shot , focus, pretty much everything but when it comes to setting the stepping with the arrows the rail just moves a long time even with the micro adjustment of on arrow, and it wont put in the intervals or steps, so if i push start shoot it tells me it cant because i need to set distance (from A to B ) but it wont let me. i have a nikon D810 and use the latest windows and a tokina lens, i tried a tamron lens but no different, is the nikon D810 compatible?? all the connections are right i believe, so for now i can only use the wemacro software,

So the problem is that Wemacro rails only performs very large movements, longer than you need? If that's the case, go to Helicon Remote preferences -> Wemacro and reduce the "Size of focusing steps". That's the size of one step, which is the steps performed by the < / > buttons.
