Hello, I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me!

 

I've shot a load of film on my phone that I am now editing. I created some stop motion animtion clips through an app which play fine in the preview screen but when I try to play the videos shot on my phone camera they are super laggy. They play normally when I open them in quicktime so I don't know what I am doing wrong 😞 I've tried most of the YouTube tutorials telling me to reserve RAM, dropping playback resoultion, rendering the video etc but nothing has worked so far!

 

It's for a university project so any help is appricated, thank you!

Thank you for your suggestions but I think I have worked it out! I dragged the video taken off my camera into a new project first instead of the stop motion animation, it must have determined a different frame rate!

If it's shot on your phone there is a good chance that it has a variable frame rate. Although it seems odd that this would cause lagginess but I would recommend downloading the free HandBrake app and converting the video to a fixed frame rate and see if the converted video plays better.

Hope that this helps.

Thank you for replying, I just tried what you suggested and it didn't work! I just tried rendering the clip to see if that would make it better and it said it was rendering 76 frames I don't know if that makes a difference, but it seems quite low!

Also when I double click on the clip and it appears on the left hand side it plays fine there

What are the complete computer specs, including hard drives (how many, what kind, what is on each, and how full)?
