    3gp Import from Android.....

    So, I've taken some footage from my Droid 2, and the files all say 28-29 fps, 96 kbps, 44 khz, with a resolution of 720x480 pixels, in the properties panel in windows.
    When I import these files in to Studio, they are glitchy, and slow, and they read 3fps in the file browser in Studio.
    What is the dealio?

    All my other files are playing back flawlessly....

    Any help regarding this will recieve their reward in heaven ;-)

    I think where going to need the video codec used in the making of there videos. Download a free programd called mediainfo and post back what it says about your video format.

    Studio can import

     

    Import Formats

    • Video: AVCHD*, AVCHD Lite*, BD Blu-ray*, DV, HDV, AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, DivX®*, MPEG-4*, 3GP (MPEG-4)*, WMV, non-encrypted DVD titles (incl. DVD-VR/+VR), QuickTime® MOV (DV, MPEG-4*, H.264*), DivX Plus® MKV*

    The 3GP is usually the cell phone video mode. I do not know if yours is different.

    Yeah, it imports, but the playback sucks. No idea why. I've uninstalled and reinstalled several times, and even unistalled Windows, and reinstalled.....

    I'm afraid your going to have to convert this video to something studio can work with. Your frame rate is 27fps I don't think studio and do this speed. Can you post this video somewhere where I can down load it and play with it?

    During 2012, Android and iPad videos and applications will become more prevalent.  4-core tablets will also be able to do more editing than the feeble predecessors.  Android Movie Studio, which is an app for the Asus, Samsung, Acer, Sony, or Toshiba tablets that use the Honeycomb and forthcoming ICS Andoid OS, might be able to handle the files in question.  It is not a great editing tool, but better than nothing on a tablet.  The iPad2 version of iMovie is supposedly better.

    Very likely, several video editing software firms will introduce Android version of their products next year.  Some will be "lite" tools that need only 1GB RAM and use little SSM space; while others would be very powerful, utilizing "cloud" processing.  Avid / Pinnacle too?  Perhaps, although they may limit efforts to a Pinnacle Studio 15 patch called Pinnacle Studio 16.

    Sure. What's a good converter I can use? Here's a link to download.

    Re: 3gp Import from Android.....

    Didn't ask what version of studio your using. But I downloaded you example and it plays fine in studio 12, but pauses in studio 15 no doubt due to the frame rate. Please confirm what version of studio your using. (Studio 14 will probable do the same as studio 15 since there almost the same).

     There are was to convert this, but I want to test using WinFF first, it's free, and you can batch convert using it.

    Re: 3gp Import from Android.....

    Downloaded the file and MediaInfo quotes variable frame rate between 3 and 30 with frame rate of 27.6.

    In S15 it played slowly and jerkily and was initially recognised as pal instead on ntsc (if it was recognised at all).

    Avid Studio played the clip correctly. The clip was output to file as ntsc mpeg2. This output file was dragged to the timeline of S15 and also played correctly.

    The file can be converted providing the conversion software plays it correctly to start with.

    Yeah, I'm on Pinnacle Studio 15 HD Ultimate. I found some software (not free of course), that I am demoing, and was able to convert, which played back flawlessly. BIZARRE o.

    Re: 3gp Import from Android.....

    I have the exact same problem: video shot with Android 2, Quicktime plays it fine, but Studio 15 Ultimate screws it up. Any progress in updating S15 since 12-15-2011?

    Re: 3gp Import from Android.....

    Just to add my situation to this thread, I have been taking video from my daughters HTC phone which uses 3gpp (I think that is right). When I drag into Studio 12.1U I have major problems with the sound going out of sync. I tried using Studio to convert to mpeg2 but the sound is still out(of course)

    If the same file is played in Windows Media player it is spot on.

    One thing I have noticed,  click on the file properties in Windows explorer and the frame rates are different for video shot at different times, but I think this may be the phone changing its settings for darker filming locations eg indoors; the darker it is the slower the frame rate, anyone agree?
