I was reading over the multi-camera configurations for the L515 (https://dev.intelrealsense.com/docs/lidar-camera-l515-multi-camera-setup) and D415 (https://dev.intelrealsense.com/docs/multiple-depth-cameras-configuration) and I had a number of questions.
- In the D415 document, in section 2E, there is the following quote: "For multi-camera case, one camera could be initialized as master and the rest configured as slave. Alternatively an external signal generator can also be used as the master trigger with all cameras set to slave mode." However, the L515 document says, "For multi-camera case, an external signal generator should be used as the master trigger with all cameras set to slave mode." Is there a reason the L515 cannot use the same "master-slave" mode that the D415 allows, and instead is supposed to use an external signal (i.e. with Raspberry Pi 4)?
- I want to confirm the sync configuration order; first, I connect the cameras via an external sync signal, then I program them to operate in sync mode using the SDK--correct?
- If I follow the HW sync guide to sync my L515 cameras, will they still remained synced if I attempt to use a third party software, such as RecFusion? I don't have their SDK license so I cannot modify anything using their software.
Thank you very much for your guidance.
