How to use Sequence mode on Eclipse
Boost your studio efficiency with automated photo- and video capturing
In this tutorial you’ll learn how the Sequence feature in StyleShoots Eclipse helps you automatically capture your photos and videos while you are free to do other things.
With Eclipse you can define all the key angles you want to capture of your products, and then have the machine repeat the same movements and positions every single time, while you are freed up to prepare the next product.

Start the Sequence
You’ll notice the individual framings have merged, and the capture button now contains three dots. Tap the capture button to start the Sequence.

Review your photos and videos
When you have run a Sequence, you can review your content. In our example we’ve run two Sequences – one for photos and one for video. The Eclipse machine is now ready for the next product…
