First, connect your Pivo to your smartphone. See the full article on How to get started with Pivo.
Once you've paired your smartphone, the app will open in Capture preview. You can change your settings either in the Capture preview by tapping on the icons or by swiping left to see the Mode settings. In the Mode settings, tap the help icons to see the tutorial and remote control guide. To close the Mode settings, simply click on the confirmation button
- In Capture preview, tap on the No Tracking icon and select Action Tracking.
In Mode settings just click on Action Tracking and close the Mode settings
- Tap or drag on the screen to mark the object you want to track.
With Position Tracking, Pivo will keep you on the left, middle or right side of the frame while you're being tracked. Use Left Position (if you are moving from left to right) or Right Position (if you are moving from right to left) in Landscape mode for better tracking since tracking relies on the object as it appears on the screen.
For Photo Mode, trigger Pivo by either Voice, Gesture command or Still Motion. See the article on Smart Capture for more information.
To easily mark yourself as an object on either front or back camera use the timer feature.
- By tapping the timer-off icon in Capture preview, you can switch to timer-on
- Tap or drag on the screen to mark the area where you'll be. Once you release your finger from the screen, a five-second count will start.
- Get into position. At the end of the five-second countdown, Pivo will lock onto you.
