How do I make videos?

By default, your ANAFI series drone and FreeFlight 6 are set to start recording a video as soon as the drone takes off. This literally means all you have to do, to start filming, is to fly your ANAFI series drone into the sky!

 

However, depending on your filming objectives, your ANAFI series drone and FreeFlight 6 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 photo/video toggle in the middle of the bottom bar of the HUD, to circle the film camera (right icon) in white.

 

Main filming options are twofold, and accessible from the HUD of FreeFlight 6.

 

First, select a video mode by tapping the corresponding box of the HUD.

 

The options appear on your device, as they do on the screen capture below. Tap a video mode to select it and tap the video mode box again to confirm your choice.

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

 

Tap the video settings box to call the individual video resolution and fps boxes.

 

Tap the video resolution box to access the available video resolutions and tap one to select it. Tap the fps box to access the available fps values and tap one to select it.

 

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

 

Available video resolutions and fps values depend on the video mode you have selected:

Standard:

All-round 4K, 2.7K or 1080p filming, at 24, 25 or 30fps.

 

Cinema:

Spectacular 4K cinema filming, at 24fps.

 

Hyperlapse:

Time-lapse video with a configurable speed factor (x15, x30, x60, x120, x240), in 4K, 2.7K or 1080p, exported at 24, 25 or 30fps.

 

Slow-Motion 1080p:

Filming at 48, 50 or 60fps, automatically slowed down by a factor of 2 (x0.5) and exported at 24, 25 or 30fps.

 

Slow-Motion 720p:

Filming at 96, 100 or 120fps, automatically slowed down by a factor of 4 (x0.25) and exported at 24, 25 or 30fps.

 

High-Framerate:

1080p filming at 48, 50 or 60fps (ideal for post-processing) and 720p filming at 96, 100 or 120fps.

 

In the following screen capture, Standard video mode is activated: available video resolutions are 4K (UHD), 2.7K and 1080p (FHD) – either in 24, 25 or 30fps, which you would find out by taping “30 fps” on the bottom right of the screen.

When you are happy with your settings and your framing, press the hard shutter button on the right of Parrot Skycontroller 3 (or tap the soft shutter button of the HUD) to start filming.

 

The soft shutter button of the HUD animates and displays a cycle between red square, and red circle. The timer starts running.

 

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 resets.
