    NDVI Phantom 2 with Mobius camera Blue filter – post processed using "FIJI" software.InfraBlueNDVI. Lut. I wrote a macro for FIJI to post process the images… from the Mobius into : Tiff or Jpg into the type of Lut that best presented the data information I was after. Each run was producing 200+ images..

    The processing time was 1minute 25 seconds. I then loaded the sequence into iMovie and played around with the timelapse. Using the FIJI LUTs was easy…

    BTW any camera with the IR filter removed / changed will give the same results.

    Thanks for this informative video. Very good job.
    1. What post-production software is needed to "apply a color gradient"…? Is this a normal color gradient that can be applied in common software such as PowerDirector?
    2. How hard is it (i.e., how long does it take) to swap cameras out so I can switch back to my factory camera when needed?
    3. Is your camera kit currently being used successfully in agriculture? Do you have any testimonials from farmers who have had success?
    Thanks!!
