Hi everyone,
Anyone know how to trigger remote shoot using multicam.lua? I see a function `shoot` but there doesn't seem to be one for remote shoot.
Any advice appreciated.
Thanks in advance!!!  :D :D :D

Multicam does not support remote shoot. Sorry.

There are two reasons for this:
1) All camera access in multicam is actually sequential, due to fundamental limits in the way USB access is implemented in chdkptp. So remoteshoot in with multicam would mean  downloading each image in turn, at the speed of a single camera. With more than few cameras, there would be little performance benefit relative to shooting and then downloading.
2) It would be complicated to implement.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
