The SmartLapse™ mode on the ORACLE allows for easy WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) type timelapse setups. A path is recorded, the duration the timelapse should take is set, then your timelapse will run following the path recorded, over the duration set. With SmartLapse™ you are no longer limited to single direction / axis timelapse movements!
