Bluetooth control questions

PostFri May 01, 2020 10:50 pm

I've gotten bluetooth control to work quite well with the Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 6k recently and I was looking for a way to access previous clips while in Playback mode. As far as I can surmise, once I enter Playback, I can only play the most recent clip. Is there a command I'm missing to be able to move back through the clips I've previously recorded?

It feels like it's just out of arms reach as the playback mode has the previous/next clip buttons right there on the touch screen. The documentation doesn't seem to cover clip navigation beyond full clip and looping of the last clip.

Any help would be useful here... thanks!

Hi Jeremy,

The Media->PlaybackControl [10.2] command controls the playbak control.
This command can be found in the latest version of the Pocket Cinema Camera Manual.

Its an int8 enum command with index[0]:
Code: Select all
0 = previous
1 = next

Code: Select all
Previous: 255, 5, 0, 0, 10, 2, 1, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0
    Next: 255, 5, 0, 0, 10, 2, 1, 0, 1, 0, 0, 0
Note: The 3 zeros on the end are padding.
