IMPORTANT: known bug -- if using sun/moon tracking, the "track below horizon = 'no'" option does not work correctly on the pan axis, as it causes it to ease back to the start. Either set "track below horizon = 'yes'" for the pan axis or update to beta42.

  • Live change camera settings in basic time-lapse mode
