Editing out bad frames in Video

Editing out bad frames in Video

My Osmo action camera (Go Pro clone) started recording poorly. Black frames showing up at various parts of the video. Sound was missing. I’m hoping it is the micro SD card I was using. It was a Speed Class of 10 (min write speed 10MB/s), UHS Speed Class of 1 (again, 10MB/s write speed). I switched it out for a micro SD card rated UHS 3 (30MBs write speed).

I use iMovie and though I edit my video to try to remove the black segments, I often miss some short black segments or even a single black (bad) frame. I movie fails when I save with the message:

Share Failed
Exporting ” has failed.
Error: RequestCVPixelBufferForFrame returned 3 for absolute frame:

To locate where in the timeline the bad frame occurs I used this website to convert frame to timecode. The calculation is not difficult. You just need to know the frame rate of the video. You can check your project settings but if it does not report the FPS, just advance the video 1 frame at a time from the beginning and count how many frames until the timecode reaches 1 second. I shoot in either 30 or 60 fps.

Take the absolute frame reported in the error message and divide it by the frame rate. This is the number of seconds into the video where the problematic frame exists. Now divide the number of seconds by 60 and that is how many minutes into the video you’ll find the bad frame. Multiply the full number of minutes by 60 and subtract this from the total number of seconds to get how many seconds after the full minutes where the problem occurs. Removing the few frames around the problem will fix the issue.

Don’t know why iMovie doesn’t offer the option of removing these bad frames for you.

The Tale of the Swans and El Gato

The Tale of the Swans and El Gato

(KlR) The Water was so warm as I swam in the creek full of minnows and swans. I jumped in the water and…

(KB) the swans started to chant my name. I was in awe of the hospitality & kindness of my new friends.

(CK) I jumped into the pond to swim with the swans. Suddenly, a thunderstorm came into view

(KK) As the storm approached I gathered all the swans to save them.

(JK) Swans being swans, they scattered willy-nilly throughout the park. I gave up and sat down and had a Coors Lite

(DK) The Coors Lite pushed me over the edge, I’m DRUNK. I grabbed my salt gun, put on my shoes, and began the hunt.

(NS) It was so itchy in my bumhole! Suddenly, it was just so itchy!

(AK) Anyway…

(JcR) Then a big gato started crawling out of my bumhole and it started meowing at me. I offered it a Dos X Equis and we chilled on the porch in Uvalde on the Las Nueces River for the next 30 days and we lived happily ever after.

(JsR) The gato started to become unfaithful. I would wait at home for them to come home, praying that they weren’t out on the town preying on the young puss of Uvalde.

(SR) The gato was in fact preying on the young puss of Uvalde…but she was just providing for her young gatos.

(KrR) By morning the gato was found drinking the leftover wine and was super drunk

(KlR) El gato had an intervention, with his feline cousins & Apache who has intervened with his master family and told him to start dipping & smoking cigars and do less drinking & do this.

Why Democrats are losing the Latino vote

Why Democrats are losing the Latino vote

Flip District

Bill Maher explains why latinos are voting Republican more and more. Pandering to them using “latino” issues doesn’t work. They want the same things every American wants. Same for other minority groups. Watch the New Rules episode that lays it all out

“Hispanics by and large are a middle-class, hard-working people,” said Abraham Enriquez, founder and president of Bienvenido US, a conservative Hispanic group that backed Flores. “They’re thinking, ‘Which political party is really driving the economic conversation?’”

Nobody **** 4.8.8 Very satisfying action/revenge/bad-ass-from-previous-life-comes-out-of-hiding movie. Not a deep plot but plenty of action. Stars Bob Odenkirk of Breaking Bad & Better Call Saul fame; 2 of my favorite series.
