KeyFrame Challenge Produces Mind-Bending Drone Cinematography

We’ve been blown away by all the incredible #SkydioKeyFrame moments we’ve seen shared over the last couple months. It’s abundantly clear reliable obstacle avoidance (autonomy) combined with advanced, use-case specific software (KeyFrame), results in truly mind-bending drone cinematography – that we believe would be impossible for any human drone pilot.

Of course, we’re biased, so don’t take our word for it. Check out the truly inspiring drone footage captured autonomously with KeyFrame and submitted by our customers.

Download the full length/4K resolution and uncompressed files via the Google drive links below each submission to view the image quality and color tuning on the Skydio 2/2+ 1/2.3” CMOS sensor.

Skydio Autonomy

These moments were captured autonomously with a Skydio 2/2+ using Skydio KeyFrame, our most advanced software-defined cinematography Skill yet. Skydio KeyFrame is built on top of the Skydio Autonomy Engine, enabling unmatched and 360° obstacle avoidance with no blind spots. Skydio KeyFrame allows users to pre-plan their shots/camera moves in Augmented Reality (AR) with the Skydio App, then let your Skydio drone nail the shot with robotic precision and accuracy for you – while reliably avoiding obstacles along the way.

Powered by six 4K color cameras, an onboard GPU (NVIDIA TX2) capable of 1.3 trillion calculations per second, and cutting edge software algorithms, Skydio 2+ was built from the ground up to be your personal flying film crew. Whether you’re a filmmaker or a mountain biker, you can capture incredibly stunning autonomous footage with Skydio 2+.
