360 Turntable Controller Software: How it Works
The 360 Product Photography shooting workflow is simple, fast and efficient when using the Iconasys 360 Photography Turntable Controller Software. Image Capture is completely automated via software command sent to Turntable (to control rotation start/stop based on user defined frame count and to control Shutter Release capture command at each turntable stop angle).
- Connect Turntable via USB to computer and Camera via Shutter Release cord to turntable
- Launch the Iconasys Turntable Controller Application (Mac OSX, Windows, Linux)
- Place object in center of turntable
- Enable cameras Live View
- Select Turntable spin direction and rotation speed
- Pre-Rotate turntable by clicking Play button in software
- Watch on cameras Live View to ensure object is spinning on axis, in the center of the turntable (if not, adjust object positioning and repeat step 6)
- Stop Turntable (if required, adjust turntable position to desired object positioning for first frame)
- Select Number of Frames (select from a pre-defined value or enter custom frames number)
- Set Pre and Post Capture Delay (optional)
- Click Start, this will automate the turntable rotation in a turn, stop, snap workflow (triggering camera capture via Shutter Release at each turntable stop angle).
