There is always a need to learn more. I wanted to try the DJI GO 4 app ActiveTrack mode. It offers the chance for some really nice cinematic shots….pretty much automatically.

There are three functions in ActiveTrack: TRACE will follow the subject (forward or backward) and can even orbit the subject as it is moving. PROFILE will cause the drone to fly alongside the subject, taking a profile of it. SPOTLIGHT holds the drone in the place you put it and lets it rotate and control the camera so that it always points at the subject. It’s truly like a spotlight.

The most important thing in using this mode is to make sure your aircraft is high enough to avoid any obstacles.
