    Hi Reece,

                    I would not recommend grouping all of your images into one lens group. Before importing go to Settings-->Import Settings you can select "Yes" to "Group Calibration by Exif". This will create two separate lens groups, one for your camera, and one for the images from your drone footage. Or you can select the images in the 1Ds and change any prior settings there.

    Any idea about lens distortion? Apply same parameters that I know apply to the pictures (Brown 3 with tangential for a Mavic Pro 2), or just leave as “unknown” for the frames from the video.

    Hi Reece,

                  A good generic setting for drones is Brown4 and Tangential2. Brown3 will also work, but you may want to do a comparison and see what works best for you. When shooting video if possible choose a video setting where the entire sensor is being used, a common mistake is to shoot with a 16:9 crop. Although it should not make a difference to the distortion settings.
