Vegas Pro 13--which is more compatible--android or iphone?
on Mar 5, 2016 at 9:40:28 pm

First, I can't ever imagine using a phone to capture video. Having said that, my iphone 4 is probably in need of replacement before too long. Question, which is more compatible with Vegas in the event I did use it to capture video, an iphone or android device? Opinions?

Why not? Perhaps you need to read: The iPhone 6s Takes Better Video Than My Professional Nikon DSLR. Don't judge an iPhone by your antique iPhone 4. That was 5 generations ago.

I have no idea what kind of video any given Android device can capture because they are all different with no standards. I guess right there the iPhone is a better choice because at least they all shoot the same format which is MPEG4 AVC/H.264 in a QuickTime wrapper. If you do choose an iPhone, you also want to get the Filmic Pro app. That will give you incredible control over the camera.

The iPhone 6S supports the following:
  • 4K video recording (3840 by 2160) at 30 fps
  • 1080p HD video recording at 30 fps or 60 fps
  • 720p HD video recording at 30 fps
  • Optical image stabilization for video (iPhone 6s Plus only)
  • True Tone flash
  • Slo-mo video support for 1080p at 120 fps and 720p at 240 fps
  • Time-lapse video with stabilization
  • Cinematic video stabilization (1080p and 720p)
  • Continuous autofocus video
  • Improved noise reduction
  • Take 8MP still photos while recording 4K video
  • Playback zoom
  • 3x zoom
  • Face detection
  • Video geotagging

I have no problem with my iPhone 6 files in Vegas Pro (other than the normal QuickTime limitations of Vegas Pro itself)

Thanks so much for the info. The referenced articles are quite informing, especially the comparison to the Sony A7--pretty impressive. I actually took some photos and videos with my ancient iPhone 4 yesterday for the first time (a hand-me-down from my daughter who got a 6s for Christmas). Not the best, but it sure is convenient and a big step up from my old flip phone. For me, the 6s seemed pretty large and cumbersome, although I understand Apple is to release a smaller version later this month with pretty much the same internals. It seems that iPhone is the way to go. Again thanks for the detailed reply.

Yea, I had an iPhone 4 which I upgraded to the iPhone 6 and the improvement was noticeable. I don't upgrade every model so my next one will be the iPhone 8. lol

Don't forget to look into the Filmic Pro app. The iPhone photo app, like most built-in smart phones video apps, will record at a variable frame rate. Filmic Pro will let you select the frame rate, bit rate, etc. and give you a much more consistent video file to edit.
