Cosmosent "Photosets"



Tech Support: support@cosmosent.com

-----


If at ALL possible, we ask you to "please" Rate & Review Photosets if/when prompted by the app.

Note that Apple controls whether an app-initiated Ratings Request will actually be made.

Like ALL apps, Photosets has ZERO control over it.

Thanks in Advance if you're able to help us out !

but they do consume precious Available DRAM.

As such, they will limit your Capture Performance !

v8.27 ?


v8.27 ? Features:

Near-future ? features, NOT yet Released to the General Public.

Concurrent Audio Capture is self explanatory.

M1 Photosets is M1 Mac-based Remote Shutter Control.

It's an Enhanced version of Photosets' earlier Multi-View Capture feature !

M1 Photosets TV is M1 Mac-based streaming of Burst Photos during capture (& directly from DRAM), from an iPhone OR iPad to an M1 Mac.

It's an Enhanced version of Photosets' earlier Photosets TV feature, that we were UN-able to get to work reliabily with Intel-based Macs, very-likely because of an Interrupt issue in those Macs.

M1 Photosets & M1 Photosets TV can be used together, OR individually.

Your M1 Secret Code, which you choose, provides a First Line of Defense !

Specifically, for the Wireless Link to become Enabled, whichever M1 Secret Code you choose MUST be entered on ALL participating app instances.

That means potentially on up-to three app instances, Photosets running on your iPhone OR iPad, Photosets running on your M1 Mac, & Photosets TV running on your M1 Mac.

Also, FYI, the Camera's UI now includes two M1 status indicators.

They are presented ONLY when either OR both of the M1 switches is set to ON.

Please note that Photosets ONLY supports the M1 Photosets & M1 Photosets TV features on Apple Silicon Macs.

Photosets uses your Power User (switch) & Capture Limit (segment) settings,
to determine how long the app's ALL-important Prime the Pump feature will run,
prior to presenting the Camera's Shutter Button.

The important thing to know is that when you've got the Control set to either 10 fps OR 15 fps, the Max Exposure Duration matches the inverse of the Capture Rate.

This happens automatically at 30 fps, but NOT at slower Capture Rates.

We intentionally extend the Exposure Duration at 10 & 15 fps, so that Photosets offers Users more application flexibility & creative control.
