Hi folks, see attached -- I notice reference to time lapse recording on the Skydio 2+ page (Skydio 2+) but I can't seem to find any further details on Skydio's website or support pages.

Has anyone seen or used this or is it a brand new feature?

Thanks!
Ray

OK so this got me puzzeled as well so started doing some research. First and foremost, there is no clear instruction how to do this. There is no ’Timelapse’ mode you can select unlike DJI drones. The only thing I can ascertain is that you sort of have to do this manually. You have to select the cable cam function, set up your shot. Then you select camera instead of video and you select interval for photos to be taken. The one thing that I really do not understand is what happens after this? Do you have to import into a editing program and stitch them together in video form. It cannot be this difficult?

I haven't tried it but under Photo settings is your interval photos selection. It is not automatically stitched like on DJI. You would take a pile of interval photos and dump them into an editor like Davinci Resolve which would fairly easily put them all together.

Aahhhh I bet that’s it. Will have to give it a try. I use PhotoRaw ON1 which supports this sort of thing quite easily.

I did a manual time lapse awhile back, used some 120FPS GoPro video, all manual. It was easy to pull a sequence of pics into the timeline in order. Welcome to New Mexico :)

@Ridefreak Niiiiiice! And New Mexico is one of my favorite places to nomad in, esp. in the winter season. We will have to look each other up whenever I'm yer neck of the woods.

BTW what is the difference between interval/time lapse and hyperlapse? Seems they produce similar results.

They do very similar functions, hyperlapse does some smoothing between the shots it takes and time lapse of course is shots taken at an interval with no smoothing. If I need detail in a particular scene or period of time I'll often use regular video mode and create the time lapse during editing. These days with the big memory cards and good batteries it's easy to make a timelapse out of regular video. I often do it for scenes where I want to show the content but don't want to spend use allot of the videos time.
