Who superceeds whom? D800 vs pixeking trigger

Hello all,

I am trying to get used to using my d800 with pixel king i-ttl flash triggers.

My question may sound simple and dumb to some of you but bear with me:

Who is in charge? Camera, trigger or flash?

In camera i see choice of channels and flash compensation for groups. Trigger and receiver also have groups/chanels.

In camera i have a choice of manual vs ttl vs auto vs. disabled for each group. I have manual, TTL and slave choices on YN468II flash.

I would like to be able to change power of the flash wirelessly by dialing it in the camera for a given group.

Do cameras settings for "group" correlate to the pixel kings "group" selection?

Do i need to have flash set in TTL or in manual mode to be able to control its power via camera? Is this at all possible? I don't care about the camera doing TTL metering, i just want to set power of the flashes manually from the camera. Is this at all possible on D800?

Thanks ahead

Nikon D800
