Hello,

I habe a Mavic 2 Pro.

On a construction site, I would like to take each day a photo from the same spot (same altitude, same direction and camera tilt).

At the end of costruciton I should be able to create an animation by displaying all photos one after the other in 1 second interval.

To be able to do so, all photos must bepretty precisely from the same altitude and direction to be able to superimpose all images.

Starting from the same spot and reaching the same altitude every day, that is easy. But direction and camera tilt are the issue


Any idean on how to do this?


Regards


Norbert

Can you use waypoints to do this? That's a feature I've wanted to try but have yet to get to.  If DJI Go 4's waypoints feature doesn't allow for camera posistion and tilt, I believe Litchi does.

HOW TO: Fly automated missions with Waypoints 2.0 in DJI GO (The Complete Guide)Overview
Use Waypoints 2.0 to create and automatically fly highly customizable waypoint missions in DJI GO with your Mavic 2 Pro or Mavic 2 Zoom. This intelligent flight mode allows you to:

  • Create or edit missions while your drone is on the ground
  • Create a mission that includes a set of points where the drone will automatically fly to
  • Set the altitude, aircraft speed, aircraft direction, gimbal pitch, and camera direction for each waypoint
  • Create points of interest (POIs) to make the camera point at an object or in a specific direction as it flies
  • Take a photo, start recording video, or stop recording video when the drone reaches any waypoint
  • Save and reload missions (so you can fly the same route later)
  • Automatically fly the mission (even if the remote controller disconnects)

Tough one.
I did this with a ground camera + tripod and even the slightest change in location / direction will result in jumps.
But....
It is worth it.

Tried waypoints on my Mavic Pro yesterday -- pretty cool -- but you are lucky that you have a Mavic Pro 2 because the original lacks the ability to store gimbal pitch, only camera direction.

Have you used a tripod while taking the photo, if not try to use a tripod by which you can set a position whatever you want and then lock that position for the future. I'm providing Animation Courses too, if you are interested then I'll help you there more.

Could you make a note of the compass direction and pitch from within the app potentially?

You say you can take off and get to same altitude. On the right side of the screen in Go 4 App is what looks like a zoom slider, but is in fact the gimbal pitch.

If you go into map mode then you could find a nearby item and ensure that the drone is always pointing in the direction of that item on the map (for example, an entrance to an estate). If you zoom in on the map when using this method then the mode accurate you can be, and the smaller an item you can use as a target to point your drone towards.

I'm in the middle of the same project right now.
A combination of waypoints and pictures from the same position and hight and Photoshop to finish it.

It's far from perfect but I guess it will be fun to watch. When ready I'll post it here.
