What is this window

Post by MykoWeb » 05.07.2018 19:34

I am using Helicon Remote with a Canon 70D and WeMacro rail. In the upper left had corner of the view screen, there is a smaller view with a slider and an 'activate' switch. What is this for? How do I get rid of it? I don't see anything in the help about this.

It's the motion trigger. Menu -> Tools -> Events -> Motion.

Thanks!

How does this work? The feature is not covered in the manual, I can find nothing on it. This and other features are missing from the manual and need to be covered.

You're right, it's been added not so long ago and isn't covered by the manual yet.

It detects motion in the live view frame and draws a blue bar in real time representing the amount of motion. You can adjust the threshold value on the same bar, enable ("arm") this tool, and it will take a shot whenever the threshold is exceeded. You can also click any of the squares on the small live view image to include or exclude this square, defining a zone to detect motion in.
