servodog confusion


Recommended Posts

Trying to make sense of the servodog settings. I have an animatronic and lets say I use the utility slider to determine that the mouth is fully open at 1120us and fully closed is 1930us. What do I do with that information? And how does that translate to LOR percentages?

Got to be an easier way

Not sure if this is the correct way, but this is the way it seemed to work for me during my Halloween display. If I used the medium range (default) motion parameters Min is 1000 and max 2000 (in servodog utility) normally 1000 Min would be 0% and 2000 would be 100%. So if you change the min to 1120 that would be 12% and 1930 would be 93%.

If your animatronic is reversed closed 93% and open 12% then your default would need to be 93% within your sequence editor and fading down to 12% when you want your jaw or animatronic to move.

I may be wrong in my settings, but my Halloween show went for about a week everyday from 6pm to 8pm before taking down it down due to Hurricane Sandy, no problems.

Best of luck,
