Repetitive Captures

Post by TravisH » 03.05.2016 06:41

Good afternoon,

I am wondering if there is any way you can use Helicon Remote with repetitive captures, in my scenario I have the Z Axis focus set up which works fine, but it would be great through my own program if there was some way I could move to the X/Y positions, then trigger Helicon Remote to create a new folder, and start shooting the Z stack.

Is there any way that Helicon Remote can be triggered to create a new folder, and a start shooting the stack. I can handle driving stepper motors to the new X & Y positions, but not sure how to interface with Helicon Remote to get the next Stack.

Many thanks!

Helicon Remote will create a new folder automatically when you press Start Shooting to take a new Z-stack (unless you disabled that in the settings). From what you've described it seems entirely possible to trigger the capture process using UI automation tools (e. g. tools that can programmatically click buttons and perform similar actions in other programs).
