Basic Navigational Principles
Setellite was designed with speed in mind: the reality of moving around from setup to setup on a (film)set can be stressful and demanding to any vfx-supervisor/wrangler trying to collect all essential data that ensures an information-rich and smooth post-production follow-up. We found that these demands for speed and efficiency translate best into the following navigational principles:
- Defining and using presets to prevent re-entering the same data again and again
- Easy duplication of (already) existing data
- Offering templates to act as a thorough basis to draw new slates from
- Large input interface
'Form View' (iPad portrait mode)
Setellite features a useful 'overview' mode when you rotate your iPad from landscape to portrait: all Main, Camera, Take and Reference info is displayed in one view. Data can be entered and edited, a small version of the Input Calculator is featured at the bottom of the screen. Think of the portrait mode as a form laid out on a single sheet of paper.
All principles that apply to the logic and purpose of the fields are the same whether you work in landscape or portrait mode.
In some occasions, Setellite will guide you with the aid of on-screen suggestions.
