The Sequence tab allows simple motion sequences to be created and played back on the Maestro. A sequence is simply a list of “frames” specifying the positions of each of the servos and a duration (in milliseconds) for each frame. Sequences are stored in the registry of the computer where the sequence was created. Sequences can be copied to the script, which is saved on the Maestro. Sequences can also be exported to another computer via a saved settings file.
To begin creating a sequence, click the New Sequence button and enter a name for the sequence. Using the controls in the Status tab, set each of the servos to the position you would like for the first frame, then click Save Frame at the bottom of the window. Repeat to create several frames, then switch back to the Sequence tab. You can now play back the sequence using the “Play Sequence” button, or you can set the servos to the positions of the specific frame by clicking the Load Frame button.
The Frame properties… button allows you to set the duration and name of a frame.
The Save Over Current Frame button overwrites the selected frame(s) with the current target values from the Maestro.
If the Play in a loop checkbox is checked, sequence playback will loop back to the beginning of the sequence whenever it reaches the end.
The Sequence dropdown box along with the Rename, Delete, and New Sequence buttons allow you to create and manage multiple sequences.
A sequence can also be used to create a script which is stored on the Maestro. There are two buttons for copying the sequence into the script:
