    I am planning a Litchi Mission and want video of the whole flight, but also stills of different things along the way. If I make a waypoint and direct it to take a photo there, will it continue flight and video filming and take a quick still shot? Or does it stop, take the photo then resume everything? Even better yet, and I know this is probably no, but is there a setting I haven't found to have it take a still photo every "X" amount of seconds?

    I'm flying a P3S using Litchi on a Nvidia Shield K1/Android

    You can't take a photo while recording video. You can get reasonable frame grabs from 4K video though (if you need uninterrupted footage.

    Waypoint actions can be set up to stop recording and yaw and tilt so you can take stills then start recording before continuing.

    I'd create two similar missions. One for video and one for photos.
