Human Re-Identification in Deep Track 3.0 enables the Insta360 Flow to continue following the same person throughout the recording, even if they are obscured from view, while All-Angle Tracking enables it to continue tracking even if the subject’s form changes.
Tracking Recovery, on the other hand, continues to track the subject when it is out of frame by zooming out or following the direction it is going in. Live Mode allows monitoring during video chats or live streaming. It is compatible with FaceTime, Instagram, and TikTok.
Gesture Control is also supported by the Insta360 Flow, allowing designers to use it as a tripod and initiate tracking without pointing the camera or pressing a button.
