The Commands Under The Hood

On QR Control Instructions page, one of the first demo QR Code was surfing example, using 1440p and 60fps with some custom Protune settings. The QR Code used this command string: mVr1440p60tw55x.5. While some of that seems like 1440p60, here is a full breakdown of how that command works:

Any of these can be used on their own, or in different order, however the order can have meaning. If I enable protune with a ‘t’ command, while in the Photo mode, then switched to video, the video will be in whatever mode setting you had previously. The individual commands within a QR Code are performed in order, just like you would when using the touch LCD.

All setting commands start with a lowercase character, followed by either uppercase or numbers for the parameters, the next lowercase character is the next setting command. Below are some additional setting commands with their range of parameters.
