@resam I had the same idea using about using some sort of layer change to trigger a camera- Possibly through GPIO. I'm glad someone has done a lot of the footwork already- Thanks for sharing. I will try to do that this weekend! Would what you are describing be effectively identical to Simplify 3D's layer-change script field?
@Phaedrux I was also thinking the same thing about using G1 to move it to the same spot out of the way for layer change. To me that was one of the major appeals of emulating the Octolapse plugin- they just look so cool. Next would be to figure out how to achieve the axis-animation effect
I HOPE I can get to it this weekend. If I do I'll report back!
