ANAFI features a series of automated shots, which enable you to capture scenes professionally.

Android Cineshots Menu

Make sure you have selected the video settings you require, check that you are filming and tap “CINESHOTS” in the bottom bar of the HUD to access Cineshots. Tap a Cineshot to select it. For each, two options appear.

 

360°

The 360° Cineshot is self-explanatory: when it is activated, ANAFI maintains its position and altitude, and rotates slowly and completely around its axis to uncover a full panorama.

Tap “Right” or “Left” to select the direction you want your drone to rotate, and to activate the 360°. After 4 seconds, ANAFI starts its rotation. An animation flashes on the screen of your device, and the “360°” box progressively fills with green as the Cineshot unfolds.

 

Reveal

The Reveal Cineshot is a classic motion picture opening shot: when it is activated, ANAFI tilts its camera toward the ground and starts moving forward in a straight horizontal line. Slowly, over 30 or 60 meters, the camera gimbal tilts up, revealing the scenery in front of ANAFI.

Before you activate the Reveal Cineshot, check the area in front of ANAFI is clear from obstacles, and safe.

Tap “30m” (small-arrow icon) or “60m” (large-arrow icon) to select the range of your Reveal shot, and activate it. After 2 seconds, ANAFI tilts its camera down and starts moving forward. An animation flashes on the screen of your device, and the “Reveal” box progressively fills with green as the Cineshot unfolds.

 

Rise

The Rise Cineshot is perfect to unveil your surroundings – or that of any object on the ground. When it is activated, ANAFI tilts its camera to the ground and starts moving up, in a straight vertical line. Slowly, as it climbs to 30 or 60 meters, the camera tilts up and ANAFI starts rotating around its axis to pan over the full scenery.

Before you activate the Rise Cineshot, check the area beyond ANAFI is clear from obstacles, and safe: do not activate the Rise Cineshot under trees, or a bridge, for example.

Tap “30m” (small-arrow icon) or “60m” (large-arrow icon) to select the range of your Rise shot, and activate it. After 2 seconds, ANAFI tilts its camera down and starts moving up. An animation flashes on the screen of your device, and the “Rise” box progressively fills with green as the Cineshot unfolds.

 

Epic

The Epic Cineshot offers another great way to dramatize any scene or location. When it is activated, ANAFI moves away backward in a smooth ascending line, keeping its subject in the center of its frame for 30 or 60 meters. The Epic Cineshot gives best results when ANAFI starts from a close-up position, relative to its subject.

Before you activate the Epic Cineshot, check the area behind ANAFI is clear from obstacles, and safe.

Tap “30m” (small-arrow icon) or “60m” (large-arrow icon) to select the range of your Epic shot, and activate it. After 2 seconds, ANAFI starts moving backward and upward. An animation flashes on the screen of your device, and the “Epic” box progressively fills with green as the Cineshot unfolds.

Activate and monitor all Cineshots with care: always check your automated shot flight plan is clear from obstacles and safe, always retain visual contact with ANAFI, and always be ready to reclaim control of your drone: any action on any stick of Parrot Skycontroller 3 immediately terminates the current Cineshot.
