(MōVI M5/M10/M15, MōVI App, MōVI Controller, MIMIC)
Akira is our most substantial firmware update yet. Take advantage of this release and unlock a whole new level of camera movement without upgrading your hardware.
IMPORTANT: Please download and read the complete release notes prior to installing or using the firmware.
This update improves stabilization performance for the MōVI 30 to 50% with most configurations. HiPer features 100% faster control loop computations and advanced tuning configurations including independent output filters. With HiPer Stabilization lenses with longer focal length can be used without sacrificing stability.
If you are an expert user, please try the advanced tuning settings. Setup is via all Apps or MōVI Controller. Some parameters might currently be missing on some platforms. Please refer to the Akira User Manual.
MōVI can now be setup via Apps or via MōVI Controller, to perform Timelapse sequences. Timelapse Mode also allows for pre-programmed motion paths to be used for real-time shots. Details can be accessed in the Akira User Manual or inside the mobile apps when you tap the "i" (information) icon on top of Timelapse screen.
Primary setup is via mobile apps (iOS and Android) which includes graphical user interface.
Mac, PC, or MōVI Controller can also be used for setup.
IMPORTANT: The Target Mode depends heavily on environmental conditions. Please read all documentation. We recommend experimenting with it in different scenarios prior to using Target Mode on productions.
MōVI can be set to lock the camera on a GPS position (requires a strong GPS signal), or to dynamically follow a MIMIC transmitter as the camera’s target.
The primary setup for Target Mode is via mobile apps (iOS and Android), but you can also use the app on a Mac or a PC. You will also want to use the Mac or PC apps to designate the MIMIC as the target.
This feature is still in early development.
The updated mobile apps (iOS and Android) have a brand new user interface with enhanced usability features.
We have added a “double tap” feature on MIMIC to kill the MōVI. This feature enables easier workflows when it’s attached to a multi-rotor copter like the ALTA. This will stop the MōVI from spinning the ALTA when on the ground. This feature can also be used to save battery life between takes.
We’ve addressed a bug that caused the MōVI to drift at-bootup.
We’ve made a series of enhancements and fixes to the MōVI Controller including a RF tools screen to help analyze and optimize wireless performance.
