    Hey guys,

    i´ve been trying to figure out if it is possible to do a rolling 180° shot with the Movi Pro. It seems to be possible with the smartphone Movi.
    See here:

    I´ve tried with Majestic Roll mode, with a connected PS4 controller and 90° Max Roll Angle and also rotating the ring while rotating the Movi via the controller. But it nothing worked.

    Does anyone have an idea how to accomplish that shot?


    Greetings
    Tobias

    It may be possible, I've seen it once, but you need to mount the Movi with the Pan motor facing 90-degrees toward your subject, so Pan motor becomes Roll, and then you have to use the Mimic because I don't think other controllers, like wheels or Movi Controller, will work. At least, that's what I've seen and heard.

    Here's a video of it on Instagram:

    Hey Graham,

    thanks for that idea and the video! I already tried it with the toad mounted 90° but only with a PS4 controller connected to the mimic. I´ll give it a try with the mimic only tomorrow. I´ll keep you updated if it worked!

    Yeah, for some reason, with other controllers, it doesn't work. Connor O'Brien was doing a bunch of testing with this a while back.
