    What I was trying to achieve:
    MoVI Operator (physically holding) with majestic pan and tilt control.
    Second Mimic Op with PS4 controller Rolling the camera with L and R buttons.

    Is this possible?

    Am I going mad?, I'm sure I have done it before, but it may have been with the MoVI controller and not the PS4. As I couldn't get it to work yesterday on set.

    I've never seen run\stop capability with the PS4 Gamepad, but if it's a RED camera, you can do it with Mimic itself.

    In the latest v1.4 Firmware, there is a 'Camera Type Selection' under Dual Op, but I'm not sure what it enables. I thought it might enable R/S for other cameras via Mimic, but I don't have cables for any of that, so can't test it. Previously, you could only run\stop a RED via RCP on Mimic, but Movi Controller could R/S other cameras.

    Sorry, I just re-read and I see that I was not clear. I meant roll as in "dutch"

    Ah, yes, you should be able to do that with PS4 and the triggers at your index fingers.

    Ye thought so too, It was either full majestic or full mimic. Dual op mode did nothing.
