Why am I getting an LRF file stored  with every clip I take using the new Firmware?

Hi northaal

This is a low resolution file generated simultaneously when recording. The new feature trimmed download via DJI MIMO app will take use of them.
LRF files are mp4, which can be viewd by any PC media player actually.

My iMac does not recognise these files natively. If I rename the extension to MP4 then it can play them. I personally would prefer not to have them. Is it possible to turn them off ? Thank You

It would be nicer for them to be stored in another folder - I like to connect the camera directly to my mac, so it means it’s annoying to preview them

Hi !
Did you know if we can use this file as Proxy for Premiere Pro ?

If the directory is ordered by file type they are easier to ignore.  But an option not to have them would seem to be a good idea.

you can use the file as a proxy.

just note it is not designed to be that time synchronization accurate. (there may be a 1 frame delay)

Hi Partorg
Other people have asked this in other posts. It is not possible at the moment. It has been requested in a future update.
I wonder if there is anyone on this forum that actually uses these files?

Hi everyone.

Does someone use this files? I'm afraid of not using this files in the edition of my videos and the quality won't be good. I try to change to .mp4 and it reproduce but it seems the same video as original so I'm really confuse if I have to use this file in a part of the edition or what it is used for.

Thanks for reply in advance

I used them today! (I think...)

After filming a scene with my band, we watched the takes on my phone with the camera disconnected, so I'm guessing these low res files were the ones I was able to watch on my phone.

Still would be better to have them in a separate folder. It's really annoying to have to change my folder to view by file type before copying SOME files over and deleting others, when before I could literally just "Select All" and move everything onto my hard drive.

This ... is still annoying. I took a break from making videos until yesterday, forgot what the LRF files were, looked it up, and now I'm annoyed again!

I would also love to request the removal of LRF files or at least an option to disable them!
They are cluttering up the SD card and slow down writing speeds as there are 2 files written at the same time... caucing problems with the memory card...
Does anyone know how to raise this issue?

+1 for removing.
It should have been made and optional feature from the very beginning. These files take 15-20% additional space! Needless to say the processing would load additional CPU and SD card bandwidth!

Hey DJI please make this optional ASAP.

This is not a professional camera. It is not able to shoot in RAW format or in log profiles. However, some users do use lrf files on post editing.
I think it would be correct to make an option in the settings to disable LRF.

These files occured after the latest release 16th of Dec.
I am sure, that was a mistake on a DJI's programmer. These file I have on my FlyAPP as a low resolution preview. I check on my device, what I load down from SD fianlly.

On a progammers error such flies are also layed on the SD card as well....

Its now April 2022 and I am using the latest Pocket 2 Firmware. These annoying LRF files are still there and canl;t be turned off as far as I am aware in settings

DJI - please can you add a new setting to allow users to turn this off.

How long does it take to code a simple thing like this?.

We all bought the upgraded Pocket 2 after owning OmniPocket and this is how you reward customers - Ignoring the customer base

Please update us

Yes an option to disable would be great it's a waste of space and clock cycles.

Die LFR-Datei ist eine SD-Version vom Original-Clip. Nimmt unnötigen Platz weg und nervt und ist auch bei der Aktion 2

+1 for removing this feature. The LFR-file is indeed an mp4 720P file. You can play it back with VLC player or Windows Mediaplayer.

I find them annoying but the work around is simple:
1. if you are using windows you can sort the directory (folder) by file type.
2. select the LFR files and hit "del" or "delete" on your keyboard.

an easier way in windows command mode (just like DOS back in the mid 80s to late 90s, before Windows and iOS):
d:
cd dcim\100media
del *.LFR


d: being the drive of your memory card
assuming your media is located in the folder DCIM followed by 100media
* means all files (the variable) and .LFR which is the extension (not case sensitive, you can type it in lowercase)
be careful, if you type del *.* - you will delete everything in the directory (folder)

registrando con la pocket 2 video in 2.7k a 50 fps il bitrate sfiora gli 82 m/s la memorycard extreme pro mi da come velocità scrittura 89 mb/s in alcune riprese probabilmente dei picchi di informazioni fanno salire il bitrate in scrittura e il video scatta. Tutta colpa di questi file lrf? Possibile che non si possano disattivare? Assurdo anche perchè le micro sd proposte in vendita nello store da abbinare alla pocket 2 sono le sandisk extreme che hanno una velocità di scrittura ancora inferiore...

Perhaps also causing more temperature rise,  waste precious battery life and card space.

Hope these extra files can be disabled soon.

Today was the first time I flew my Avata while being connected to the DJI Fly App on my phone. Every other time I've flown it I wasn't connected to my phone or the app. Coincidentally, this is the first time I have seen these LRF files. Are these only generated while using the DJI Fly App? Do I have to connect to the app every time I fly?

Agreed, people just can't seem to think outside of the box. I personally like options even though I have the latest and greatest.  It's as simple as you say, simply delete them with a command or sort them and delete them. Takes seconds.

Sure, having the ability to turn LFRs off might help, but it doesn't really effect read/write speeds if you have the appropriate SD card.

Oh well, I'm sure this isn't on DJI's top of their priority list. Why would it be?
