Problem while shooting/editing 4k
on May 20, 2019 at 4:02:43 pm

Hi guys,

Im a bit lost with the recording problem Im facing. I am trying to shoot in 4k for quality purposes as Im building a portfolio to try to sell footage to stock agencies. At my current state of budget I can only shoot with my smartphone and try to clean image as much as possible. Usually recording goes smoothly in other light situations, but when a shoot with light aiming directly to the sensor in a low light-high contrast scene, the image "breaks". It produces like a stutter while playing it later. At first I thought it could be my computer lacking speed to playback heavy data but I play it frame by frame on Premiere and the stutter is attached to the image, it seems.

Look some examples:

In this frame level of noise/stutter is acceptable. Below de elbow there is some but manageable.

Few frames later the image "breaks". There are zones of the image that are completely unusuable.

Another example

And this happens if I shoot a sunset or any other similar situation.

I know my recording conditions are not optimal at all but I don't understand what is happen. Is it my playback/graphic card?, lack of codecs. I need some guidance to know how to look it up. I haven't found other facing a similar situation.

Im using FilmicPro app with a Oneplus 3, which is fairly old (2016)

Can someone help me?

You need a proper camera.

As others have said, you really need a different/better camera for sure. Even a used, recent model iPhone or Google Pixel phone if that's all you can afford. Look at Swappa or ebay. These are not perfect solutions, but they will get you better image quality. But if you're planning on trying to sell your shots as stock you really should be looking into at least a DSLR or better camera. Most video pros will see the spot the difference. They're used to seeing clean 4K shots on stock sites. I will say you do have a good eye, you just need better tools.
