Long recording time (> 60 min)
Recommended camera is Panasonic HC-V180/160 (HC-V130, V110 or older) or Canon Legria HF R706/707. Order it from any favorite e-store. These cameras can be complemented with extra large battery (order separately) or used with external power-supply.
Recording with head camera (point of view)
To make the recording easier, or as a complement to show exactly what the operator sees, use a “action video camera". Recommended camera is GoPro Hero. Order it from any favorite e-store.
Newer versions of the GoPro Heri 3/4 also creates hidden .LRV files (Low Resolution Video). These files can be renamed to .MP4 and then used in AviX. The resolution and video size is well suited for AviX. Only cameras with wi-fi have this option.
GoPro Hero4 also comes with an LCD screen, making it possible to use it as a hand held camera, e.g. together with the Hand Grip accessory.
GoPro Hero5 Black/Session
The latest recommended cameras from GoPro is Hero5 Black and Hero Session. The difference is mainly that Hero5 Black has more advanced features, LCD touch screen and a removable battery, while the Hero Session is simpler with a build in battery (approx. 2 hours time) and no LCD screen. Both is really easy to configure and control using the GoPro app for Smartphones.
Recommended resolution GoPro
Can easily be adjusted using the GoPro app (Capture).
Use 720p, 25-30 fps - Using higher resolution will only result in unnecessarily large video files.
Sometimes video files need to be converted. It can be due to:
- The video format is not supported by AviX
- The video format is to big handle in an easy way
- Several separate movie files should be combined to one big file.
We recommend one of the following softwares:
Any Video Converter (can also merge movies): http://www.any-video-converter.com/products/for_video_free/
If the video playback in AviX isn't smooth or doesn't work at all, it can be due to playback settings. There are two settings in AviX: "Software based" and "Hardware accelerated". Go to "Preferences" and select "Movie player", try changing between these two settings. Depending on your computers configuration, one of these is the most suitable.
