    Hi Rick,

    In Timelapse mode, you can choose the degree from 60º to 360º, the rotating direction, and the rotation speed to set the recording time.

    For more information, check it out the Timelapse article here: https://help.getpivo.com/hc/en-001/articles/360025637831-Timelapse

    Thank you for the reply, however the timelapse mode automatically creates a movie file. Is there a way to get the images before they are combined into a movie?

    I to would like to create panoramic images and not only time lapse movies. Is there a way to just use the Pivo to spin the camera and use the native or other third party app for the panorama?

    Hi Bruce,

    You can create panoramic shots with Pivo's Panorama feature.

    With the remote control, the Pivo device can be used as a rotation neck for the native camera or other third party apps.

    For more info on the Panorama mode and the remote control, click here: https://help.getpivo.com/hc/en-001/articles/360025345412-Panorama

    In the app we can't choose number of pictures taken or the interval. Only choose degree and speed, which is relative value.
    Info how long will the shoot take is missing, manual mode too... No settings like white balance, shutter speed, ISO, frame rate of the final movie etc. In current state it is useless, since it creates 1024x768 movie, which is resolution from 90ties.

    It would be perfect if Pivo pod could be used without app, just with the remote to start/stop the rotation while give users opportunity to use different application for taking pictures (of use a dedicated camera/mirrorless camera).

    I agree that it would be awesome if we could control Pivo without using app as the main picture taking source.  That would definitely solve the lack of resolution in simple modes like panorama and timelapse.  It would also give you more time to work on fixing the resolution since there are so many phones out there.

    I have figured out how to use pivo without the app. Just turn on the pod, but not the app and you can control it with the supplied remote. Then you can run any other timeleapse app of your choice and control the rotation with the remote. Easy and sufficient. It even holds my GH5 mirrorless when I balance it correctly!

    Hi rick jensen,

    For iOS, it's not possible to get the images before they are combined.

    For Android phones, you can access the files by following the steps below:

    1. After your Timelapse is created - stay on the preview page
    2. Minimize the Pivo app (make sure to no close the app)
    3. Open your File Manager app
    4. In the File Manager app click on:
      Internal storage > Android > data > io.youvr.android.pivo > files > timelapse > frames

    For the Android version, information regarding how long the shoot will take will be added in the future.

    Our Timelapse feature is a quick create mode for users to create a Timelapse with ease. For more customization, you can use Pivo Pod and Remote control without the app to shoot with your native camera or a third party app. As Ssglackey mention, just pair the remote control and you don't have to turn on the app.

    It would be great if you could have a continuous rotate option without having to hold down buttons on the remote. "set it and forget it"

    Hi Rick, 

    If you mean having you Pivo rotate 1 round (360 degrees) without stopping, you can do that by pressing << or >> on the remote control.

    "Hi rick jensen,

    Interesting workaround, it also works for turntable for anyone who bought the pivo hoping to do 3d photogrammetry but is it possible to add a feature to save out these images before they get converted to a low res gif? Even saving as a high res video file would be great, the android app doesn't appear to have this feature. While I'm adding dream features, sharing these direct with dropbox would be a God send. Lots of beginners are preferring to use photogrammetry software over dedicated 3d scanners because of the price difference. With a bit of tweaking pivo and the app could be the perfect starter kit for getting into photogrammetry for many people and open up a whole extra market for you.

    Thanks James
