Gostaria de ter um manual completo em português. Tentei gravar um filme horizontal em tela cheia. Quando parei para ver, só o celular na vertical abria o vídeo em imagem bem pequena. Como fazer horizontal continuar horizontal como foi gravado?



Leider werden die aufgenommen Clips nicht in der richtigen Reihenfolge beschriftet, Das erschwert das Sortieren und Zuordnen. Frage kann dies eingestellt werden.
So wird z.B. ein Clip, wenn er mit dem Iphone ohne Gimbale V2 aufgenommen wurde : IMG_4149.Mov.
wird jedoch die Aufnahme mit dem gleichen iPhone und der gleichen Einstellung über die GimbalSteuerung aufgenommen, So wird der Clip mit:81E5CAA5-F7AC-412F-A453-00C8D9B6BE9E.mp4 beschriftet. Ein chronologische Reihenfolge ist nicht möglich.
