Support for Autel drones

Hello everyone,

For the moment there is no plan to add the Autel drones in Pix4Dcapture.

Please keep in mind that Pix4Dmapper can process images taken from virtually any application as long as they are of good quality and overlap. For more information: Which image acquisition app can I use with Pix4D’s software?.

I think that the Autel users would like to know why pix4d is not interested in supporting the Autel Evo II by including them in the capture app. I know I would like to know. I still have not selected processing software yet and it is very discouraging that pix4d will not fully support the drone that I am using without an explanation. PIx4d has the Anafi drones but not Autel? Can someone from pix4d please explain why this is the case? Thank you.

Why not? Are you legally bound to not engage? Our company is dropping DJI products and not investing in future applications that a hardware restrictive.

Pix4D’s software is image acquisition app agnostic. That means Pix4Dmapper, Pix4Dcloud, Pix4Dmatic, Pix4Dreact, and Pix4Dfields can process images taken virtually from any application as long as they are of good quality and overlap.
That being said, you can use any application to capture your dataset and then process them with our products!
Feel free to get a trial of our products and try them out :slight_smile:

Thanks to all of the Pix4D support staff for the answers, the forum support is great.

Though I cannot speak for all users, my reasoning for requesting that the Evo II be included in the app is that I have confidence in the software company’s app.

I know that Pix4D ensures that their app provides for the best results because it is specifically designed and tested for Pix4D whereas third party apps are not. Nobody knows the required parameters like Pix4D.

I have used Maps Made Easy Business for DJI, DJI’s apps, Litchi, Autopilot, Autel app and UgCS and for whatever reason, the Pix4D app seems to be the most intuitive and provides the best overall results for Pix4D Mapper - in my experience.

That’s my reasoning for the request and I hope that Pix4D leadership understands and would consider that basic philosophy.

I attended an in person Pix4D training a couple of years back and I was told by the instructor that “You should not expect much from a free application “, referring to Pix4D capture. My reply was that most users expect applications specific to the software to be included when paying for software such as Pix4D, similar to DroneDeploy.

Autel is slowly but surely luring users away from DJI for many reasons and professional users intending to purchase the Dual and RTK versions of the Autel products will want to utilize Pix4Dcapture.

I am not being overly critical of Pix4D for those decisions but those decisions are short sighted in my opinion.

Regards.

Hi Michael,

Thank you very much for your comments and constructive feedback.
I have transferred it to our product teams.
