HERE IS WAHT I SAY IN THIS VIDEO:

SO LAST WEEK, I TALKED ABOUT WHICH ARE – IN MY OPINION -THE BEST CAMERA SETTINGS TO USE ON THE MAVIC, AND IF YOU DIDN’T SEE THAT VIDEO, IT WOULD BE GOOD IDEA TO DO THAT FIRST….HERE IS THE LINK!

INSTEAD – IF YOU DID SEE THAT VIDEO, I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW IF YOU TRIED THOSE CAMERA SETTINGS AND IF THEY WORKED FOR YOU, SO LEAVE ME A COMMENT BELOW AND LET ME KNOW

NEXT THURSDAY INSTEAD – I WILL HAVE A VIDEO ABOUT HOW I COLOR CORRECT AND GRADE MY DRONE FOOTAGE IN POST, SO IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, SUBSCRIBE OF COURSE, BUT DON’T FORGET TO TURN ON THE BELL!

TODAY INSTEAD WE WILL FOCUS ON HOW TO ADJUST THE SENSITIVITY OF THE INPUTS THAT WE GIVE TO OUR MAVIC AND HOW TO SMOOTH THE GIMBAL MOVEMENTS

LETS GET INTO IT RIGHT AWAY

OK I WILL TRY TO KEEP THIS VERY SIMPLE AND EASY TO FOLLOW EVEN FOR SOMEONE THAT JUST GOT A NEW MAVIC PRO TODAY!
SO ON TOP OF YOUR SCREEN, TAP ON GPS TO GO TO THE MAIN CONTROLLER SETTINGS – SCROLL DOWN AND SELECT THE ADVANCE SETTINGS.
TAP ON EXP – HERE WE FIND THROTTLE-RUDDER AND FORWARD/RIGHT
I KEEP THROTTLE AND FORWARD/RIGHT VALUES THE SAME, BUT I WANT LESS SENSITIVITY ON THE RUDDER INPUT, IN ORDER TO HAVE MUCH SMOOTHER PANNING MOVEMENTS, SO I SET IT AT 0.20
NOW LET’S GO BACK AND SELECT SENSITIVITY – HERE WE FIND ATTITUDE-BRAKE AND YAW MOVEMENT LIMIT, ATTITUDE CONTROLS HOW THE DRONE WILL REACT TO YOUR INPUTS AND I SET THIS AT 50
BRAKE INSTEAD CONTROLS THE DRONE REACTIVITY TO LACK OF INPUTS, MINE IS SET AT 130
LASTLY THE YAW MOVEMENT LIMIT CONTROLS THE REACTIVITY TO PANNING INPUTS, I SET THIS AT 50
I DON’T REALLY TOUCH THE GAIN SETTINGS!

AND WE ARE FINALLY IN THE GIMBAL SETTINGS, LET’S GO IN THE ADVANCED SETTINGS
FIRST SETTING IS THE GIMBAL PITCH SPEED, WE WANT TO MAKE SURE TO HAVE A VERY SLOW UP AND DOWN TILT, THE FOOTAGE WILL NEVER LOOK VERY CINEMATIC IF WE KEEP A FAST PITCH SPEED, MINE IS SUPER SLOW, I HAVE IT AT 10
THE SECOND SETTING ENABLES THE GIMBAL TO TILT UP OF 30 DEGREES, I HAD THIS OFF AT THE BEGINNING, AS YOU CAN SEE THE PROPELLERS IN THE IMAGES UPPER CORNERS, BUT SINCE I LIKE TO USE LETTERBOX IN MY SHORT FILMS, THAT IS TAKING CARE OF THE PROBLEM AND THE POSSIBILITY TO HAVE THE DRONE TO “LOOK UP”, AND NOT ONLY DOWN, IS PRETTY COOL!
THE GIMBAL PITCH SMOOTHNESS SETTING CONTROLS THE GIMBAL ROLL OFF, I SET THIS TO 14 TO AVOID SUDDEN STOPS WHEN PITCHING, THAT WOULD NOT LOOK VERY CINEMATIC!
THE LAST GIMBAL SETTING IS ENABLE SYNC GIMBAL PAN FOLLOW, I KEEP THIS ON AS IN MY OPINION IT HELPS TO GET MORE FLUID GIMBAL MOVEMENTS.

OF COURSE THESE SETTINGS, LIKE LAST WEEK CAMERA SETTINGS, ARE THE ONES THAT WORK FOR ME!
USE THEM JUST AS A REFERENCE, BUT ALSO TO PLAY AROUND A BIT, CHANGE THINGS AND MAINLY, PRACTICE AS MUCH AS YOU CAN. IN THE END YOU WILL FIND YOUR OWN BEST SETTINGS
NEXT WEEK I WILL SHOW YOU HOW I COLOR CORRECT AND GRADE MY MAVIC PRO FOOTAGE, IT IS A QUICK AND VERY SIMPLE WORK FLOW THAT WILL HELP YOU TO GIVE YOUR IMAGES THAT CINEMATIC LOOK YOU ARE SEARCHING FOR!
