Path, Camera Intervall

    It looks like you have automatic photo capture set on the approach, and during the path, and then you are doing a series of commands after the path to capture interval photos again. Can you remove the automatic capture during the approach and all the commands at the end?

    Yes, you are right, i put all the automatic photo captures I could find. But now that I deleted all of them, photos are not taken automatically as well. What I am trying to do is to have overlapping pictures, similar to the map command but just for a path. So can you help me to find the suitable commands for a interevall that takes overlapping pictures? 

    Thanks a lo!

    Can you try it with just automatic capture on the Path (not on the approach). The mission preview shows that this results in two sets of intervals:

    I am wondering if there is an issue with the first set of photos interfering with the second set.

    I tried with just the capture on the path but the number of photos is still zero. I dont understand why there is a different set of photos. Maybe it has something to to with the markes  I set to change the altutude at some point? Thank you.

    I will try flying this plan tomorrow to see if I get the same results.

    I just ran this mission on an iPhone XS Max with a Phantom 4 Pro v2 and it captured images perfectly. Not sure what is going on with your setup, but do you have a different device or drone that you can test with?

    Thank you for trying. No, I do not have annother drone to try. I actually didnot try it outside, cause I will fly in that area not until Monday. Also I donĀ“t see an option to change the intervall min capture like it is possible in the map command.

    Do you have any other approaches in mind that I could try? I also thought about to just set up the path with a really slow maximum speed and put an autimatic capture interval on the remote screen just before taking off. Do you think that would work?

    Thanks for your great work on that app. Still love all the options!

    The automatic capture option is meant to be the "easy button". If you want finer grained control, you still need to put down camera commands before it. It sounds like you have a hardware issue at the moment so I'm not sure if planning the mission in a different way is going to help. Can you try doing a map or something to see if you can get the drone to capture anything at all?

    I could do other missions like the map command. But when it comes to the path command it won`t take pictures.
