How do I make videos with ANAFI Ai?

By default, ANAFI Ai and FreeFlight 7 are set to start recording a video as soon as ANAFI Ai takes off. This literally means all you have to do, to start filming, is to fly ANAFI Ai into the sky!


However, depending on your filming objectives, ANAFI Ai and FreeFlight 7 offer a wealth of settings, from full auto to manual professional options, for you to make the most of every situation.


If required, tap the “Mode” box in the bottom bar of the HUD, to select the video mode.


Main filming options are twofold, and accessible from the HUD of FreeFlight 7.


First, select a video resolution (4K or 1080 p) by tapping the corresponding box of the HUD.

Second, select a framerate (fps – frames per second) value from the corresponding box of the HUD.


Tap the video settings box again to close the sub-boxes and confirm your choices.


Available fps values depend on the resolution you have selected, and on whether you have activated the HDR option:



24, 25 and 30 fps



24, 25 or 30 fps


1080 p:

24, 25, 30, 48, 50 and 60 fps


1080 p HDR:

24, 25 or 30 fps

When you are happy with your settings and your framing, press the hard shutter button on the right of Parrot Skycontroller 4 (or tap the soft shutter button of the HUD) to start filming.


The round soft shutter button of the HUD turns into a square and displays a double timer: time since the video started (main timer, top) and remaining filming time (small timer, bottom).


Press the hard shutter button of the controller (or tap the soft shutter button of the HUD) again to end the recording. The soft shutter button of the HUD comes back to steady, red and round. The timer disappears.
