OK, so after spending about 8 hours today trying to do something I assumed was relatively trivial, I’ve come to the point where I’m just too frustrated and confused to continue without some input from someone knowledgeable.
I took a 12 minute video of me playing the piano from my android phone, and I also made an audio recording of the same thing with another device. I simply want to sync the separate audio recording of better quality with the video (using also the audio from the video at a low level).
I downloaded 4 different free video editing programs today (including Lightroom at the high professional end, and Filmora at the beginner’s level end).
In both of those the audio from the video very quickly goes out of sync (putting aside the other separate audio for the moment). This is apparently due to the fact that the video was recorded in variable frame rate, not constant frame rate. (what’s surprising is that Filmora totally seems to market itself as being for someone who knows nothing, has some video they’ve taken on their phone, and wants to quickly do cool stuff with it).
- Is there no free video editor for windows that supports vfr?
- Is there anyway to do what I want without converting the video? (I think I saw a program called “handbrake” which I tried but my 12 min video would have taken nearly 2 hours to convert which might have worked this time but I want to see if there’s another solution before I accept this as part of the process each time. )
- I also see no way to change the frame rate settings on my Motorola. Is there a way to change it to cfr on my phone by default for the future?
- How do so many people seem to make cool edited videos that litter the youtubes so easily? Does everyone know about this frame rate issue but me?
