Issues editing Xiaomi Yi 1080p/60 fps video in Pinnacle Studio
“Hi, all, I’m having issues working with Xiaomi Yi 1080p/60 fps video in Pinnacle Studio. It reads the video as import, but the editing process is not stable and reliable. How can I expect a smooth workflow between Xiaomi Yi 1080p/60 files and Pinnacle? Any suggestions?”
The Xiaomi Yi Action Cam’s video quality and shooting options are well above those of other cameras in its class. It can capture 1080p video at 60, 48, 30 or 24 frames per second (fps); 960p (also called tall HD) at 60 or 48fps; 720p at 120, 60 or 48fps; and 480p at 240fps. Other cameras at the Yi’s price offer a fraction of those options and typically record video at a maximum of just 1080p at 30fps and 720p at 60fps.
If for whatever reason you are having problems working with Xiaomi Yi Camera video in Pinnacle Studio, we would recommend transcode the footage to a format that is best suitable for use in Pinnacle first, such as DV AVI format.
