e.g. The 6ft super antlers (approx 8 inches above the camera) increased roll inertia by nearly 7,000 lb/in2
Could someone clarify what distances you need to measure (heights or radii?) and the formula for calculating inertia in multiple axes?
I am guessing this is a complicated spreadsheet requiring lots of rig inputs, and it may have been generated somewhere in the deep dim past. I attempted to map some of the variables in the attached photo but it obviously becomes "Dynamic Balance formula on steroids"
And a supplementary question: ... the inertia measurements look enormous and seem very abstract. Do they actually relate in a meaningful ratio to the measure of actual pressure being applied by the fingers on the post?
Such actual numbers are a academic when doing mods in the field, where it all comes down to "feel" and "rules of thumb", but this an aspect of steadicam theory that has not had a lot of coverage, so I am just putting the question out there.
