that was may question. This long screw on the horizontal pan, what it is exactly ?
i thought it was to block the head and realeased it , but you say that it is the exact reverse effect ?

I just found out that Motion 3 has a "flop" filter, which does the trick. Still, it is not good when panning scenes with text or anything known to the viewer.

I'm not sure of the exact mechanics of it but you have to have the horizontal screw tight when engaging the motorized pan. Same for the vertical tilt screw which is also the handle.
I think it keeps tension tight for the gears to move. The only time the screws should be loose is when you manually want to adjust positions. I've written all this in an English instruction sheet which Mizar will either send out to foreign buyers or upload to their website soon.
