How do I shoot footage to a specific shot on the Shot List?
You can do this one of two ways:
On landscape projects, use the shot list selector at the right side of the screen.
On portrait projects, use the shot list selector at the bottom of the screen.
What does the status bar share with the platform and who can see it?
The status bar shares and displays which project you are currently shooting to, how much storage you have available on your device, your wifi connection, and your battery life. Team teammates and Team admins can see these details.
What does the green check mark mean on the status bar? What if I don’t have a green check mark?
The green check mark on your status bar means that all the clips you shot have synced to the platform successfully! If you have a timer icon instead of the green check mark, it means that the clips are waiting to sync and are next in line or will begin syncing once internet connection is attained.
Can I change the FPS and Resolution of a Shot?
You can only customize the FPS and Resolution of a shot using Free Shoot. The team admin sets up each shot with a specific FPS and Resolution in mind so you don’t have to worry about fiddling with the settings. If you want to take creative liberties, just switch to Free Shoot to use whatever settings you like!
How do I auto focus and do auto-white balance?
Tapping anywhere on the screen will auto adjust the camera to that spot. The camera will adjust focus and aperture where you tapped.
How do I manually adjust the focus and aperture?
To manually adjust the focus and aperture, press on the screen and hold down. Aperture and focus controls pop up which allow you slide left or right to adjust focus and top to bottom to adjust aperture.
How do I zoom?
You can zoom in and out by pinching in and out on the camera screen.
What is Free Shoot?
Free Shoot is a shot type that gives users full creative control over the look and feel of their filming and is included on every project. If you see something that doesn’t fit a shot type, just switch to Free Shoot and film away! You can adjust the FPS and Resolution of a shot when you use Free Shoot, but the FPS and Resolution of the Shots in the Shot List are locked.
How do I see the footage I have shot?
You can see the clips you shot in the app by selecting a project and navigating to the Shot List. The Shot List will give you the details about what you should be filming, and if you select one you will be able to see the individual clips you have filmed for that Shot. If you navigate to Clips, you will see all of the clips you have shot for a project.
You can see the footage you shot on Pro.Cinebody.com by logging into your account and navigating to the specific project you are looking for.
How do I see the footage others have shot?
If you are a team teammate or a team admin you can see all the footage that you and others have shot to a project. If you are a collaborator, you will only be able to see what you have shot to the project.
What does the yellow star mean?
The yellow star indicates a clip that has been marked as a favorite! Once you finish filming a clip, aa star will pop up by the record button shortly after you finish. If you feel like the clip you just shot was out of this world and you want it to stand out to the Project Team on the platform, simply tap the star to mark your last clip as a favorite. You can also favorite or unfavorite clips in the Shot List Detail view or in Videos.
Can I film while offline or without wifi connection?
You bet! The clips will still sync to the platform if you do not have a Wifi connection, but please do note that in this case, it will use your data. If you film clips while your device is in airplane mode, the app will store them until you connect to internet again, when it will begin syncing the clips to the platform.
The camera has an overlay that tells me to rotate my phone, but the overlay does not go away when I do. What should I do?
Check to make sure that your iPhone device settings are not set to lock orientation. The app uses camera rotating functionality to allow you to create portrait or horizontal projects and to ensure that you are filming in the correct orientation, so if your device orientation is locked, this will limit your ability to film horizontally. Simply unlock orientation from your device’s settings to start filming!
