Controlling your Camera

            Connecting to the Interface:

            Open your camera control interface using either your phone or computer.

            On your phone, download the Live Planet App, which can be found in the Google Play store.

            On your computer:
            For iOS, use the Safari browser. 
            For Mac, Windows or Linux, use any browser.

            Go to the URL: http://liveplanet-_______/. Fill in the blank with your unique camera identifier. In order to locate your camera's, look ___________. This will make up your online camera interface’s URL. For example, http://liveplanet-8c975a/.

            On an internal network, you will be able to access your camera through supported web browsers. You can find your camera easily from the Live Planet app; It will search and then you can find and connect. In order to find your camera on a larger network, you’ll need to connect to an IP address.

            Audio Device:

            When no audio devices are connected, it will say None.   

            If you plug in an audio device such as a USB Microphone, it will be listed here. When you select an audio device, it will list as “Enabled” under Audio Stream.

            Tint:

            Fine-tunes the white balance to compensate for a green or magenta tint. Move the slider to the left (negative values) to add green to the photo; move it to the right (positive values) to add magenta.

            Tip: If you see a green or magenta color cast in the shadow areas after adjusting the temperature and tint, try removing it by adjusting the Shadows Tint slider in the Camera Calibration panel.

            Temperature:

            Changes how “warm” or “cool” the picture looks. Use this to make cold depressing scenes look more lively, for example. 

            Shadows:

            This makes shadowy areas appear lighter. Use this to make detail more visible if it's obscured by the darkness of a shadow.

            Curves:

            The curve adjustment tool is a very powerful tool and recommended for advanced users. Adding control points to the diagonal line and modifying the shape of the curve in the shadow, mid-tone and highlight areas alters the tonality and applies contrast and exposure adjustments by either stretching or compressing tones in the image.

            To reset Curves, grab the dots and pull them off-screen.

            Exposure:

            Changes the brightness to make it look like the image was exposed for a longer or shorter time. Use this to correct under- or over-exposed photos. The setting is measured in stops of dynamic range, 14 in total and we use DOL-HDR (Digital Overlap HDR) to do this.

            HDR: 

            You have two options here for High-Dynamic Range: “Off” and “Auto.” When it is off, it will only take effect at lower exposures. With HDR, you can get better dynamic range in an environment where luminosity varies greatly.
