iPhone 6s Video to Handbrake to Premiere Pro (2015 Edition)
on Oct 8, 2016 at 9:26:35 pm

A friend told me to handbrake my iPhone6s videos before doing any work in Premiere Pro.

I'm a newbie.
What does Handbrake do to my iPhone 6s video?
If this question has been asked/answered by a tutorial, I'd be grateful for the link.

Thanks to all!

It does whatever you set Handbrake to do to your videos.

You need to convert the footage to constant framerate.
As Pr cannot handle variable framerate.

Thank you Ann.
My confusion is this: My iPhone records at 1080p at 30fps. That's not variable. Or is it?
I don't see a need to use 60fps.

Regards, MP.

Thanks to all!

Download http://mediainfo-mac.en.softonic.com/mac# and check the Framerate Mode.
It will say: VARIABLE.
You need to change that to CONSTANT.

I did not say change it from 30 fps to 60 fps.

Hi Ann:
Is there a way to check frame rate besides http://mediainfo-mac.en.softonic.com/mac# ?
I have a Windows 7 desktop and mediainfo only works on Mac.

Thanks to all!

iPhones and other phones record variable frame rate despite what the setting say. It's not a steady 30fps.

Hi Martino,

What Ann and others have said is correct. Phones will often say they record at 30p but the real frame rate is variable meaning it could actually be 30.2 or similar. Short clips will often not cause any issues in Premiere but longer clips can create audio sync and other performance issues.

This is something the team would like to address, but it would not hurt to add a feature request ?

Besides the frame rate, I think the H.264 codec from iPhone 6s is not supported well by Adobe Premiere. You need to encode the H.264 to Premiere Pro edit-freidnly format first.

Premiere has no trouble editing H.264.
No need to convert and certainly not to mpeg2.

Hi All,

For those of you using your iPhone to record video. Filmic Pro just announced an update that could be helpful for this workflow. NOTE: I have not tested this yet.

From the "FiLMiC Pro" Version 5.5 for "iPhone" Release Notes (Nov 11, 2016):

"... v5.5 includes fixes and optimizations to our iOS 10 codebase including the following: —Adobe Premiere and Windows compatibility has been assured. NOTE: This undertaking has required a change of the default audio encoding format from AIFF to PCM. AIFF is still supported in the app but should not be used if the intention is to export to Adobe Premiere or playback on Windows PCs. (Double-check and/or reconfigure your presets to use PCM audio if you plan to use FiLMiC Pro footage in Adobe Premiere and/or on a Windows PC) —Focus reticle refinements ensure accurate, smooth, and crisp focus actuation."
