Adobe Lightroom is not always reading XMP files

We are using Adobe Lightroom a lot to manage our images and time lapse sequences. We also use XMP files extensively. These are small files that hold processing information like exposure corrections or white balance corrections. In fact you can use XMP files to store any image processing action that you can perform within Adobe Lightroom and many other Adobe products. This makes transporting your image modifications very easy.

Dragon Frame 3.5 now supports the eMotimo TB3 black out of the box

One big advantage of the eMotimo TB3 black pan and tilt head is its integration with Dragon Frame. Dragon Frame can be used to accomplish complex, but accurate moves by defining key frames on your axis. This was always easy to setup, but the latest 3.5 release really makes life easy. The eMotimo axis are now supported out of the box by Dragon Frame. No more guess work about the optimal settings when you define an axis in Dragon Frame.

ElysiaVisuals timelapse controller test - D800 exposure ramping over 10 stops

We are almost ready to release our time lapse controller. The hardware is getting stable and all planned features have been implemented in the first version of the firmware. We plan to accept orders for the first units in October. The first version of the firmware will mainly support the Nikon D700, D800, D3 and D4. But other models can be added in only a few days. Keep your eye on our blog because we will post more test results and images of the actual hardware that we have developed.

How to use the TB3 and the Stage One with Dragon Frame

We have been experimenting with Dragon Frame for a while now. Dragon Frame is a great piece of software that you can use to control stepper motor based motion control hardware. We were particularly interested in using Dragon Frame for complex multi axis moves with the Dynamic Perception Stage One slider combined with the eMotimo TB3 black pan and tilt head.
