Recorded on MP at 23.98fps (though how/when I changed it to that I have no idea) - trimming on my phone (default edit app) changed it to 23fps … hence the frame drop ever second. (23? FFS!! Why? 23!!)
Perhaps the record rate is set in the app (change of app - change of setting) … and using Litchi changed it.
But, looked back, and last Litchi video was also 30fps.
When/How did that change!
Need to investigate.
24fps (23.98)? I don’t use 24fps! Always 30! (29.97 …. bloody americans … it’s time you abandoned decimals! That was all analogue NTSC. No longer needed!)
Used a couple of other video “editing” apps that I find useful on my phone (just for simple trimming/resizing video) to check what they would do, and also PowerDirector …
Video2Me - Kept 23.98. Moderately accurate trimming (albeit only to 0.1 secs), and it’s a pain resizing (in as much as it’s almost impossible to select a specific size as you scroll through it’s range of offerings. 1080 and 720 evaded me.) It does wander off and complete the exercise in background and notifies you when complete.
InShot - Kept 23.98 - Accurate trimming is a doddle and resizes a treat to the usual sizes, and custom sizes available too. You can return to the last edit, later, too … and make additional tweaks.
(I may squander money on the ad free version of this [£2.69]. I rather like its simplicity.) It also does some video editing and photo editing, though never used for either function.
PowerDirector - This decided to output at 24fps (as in 24.00000!) You have to set up a project (meh!), but trimming is quite easy (and an expandable timeline means trimming is “frame accurate”!) and it does offer you the usual sizes (inc 4k!). And, being project based, you can go back to a saved project at any time to tinker with it further.
So - winner today - InShot - and this was it’s twitch-less version …
