[Q] SLOW MOTION! 1/2 (60fps) 1/4 (120fps) 1/8 (240fps)
Hi guys, I am a proud owner of a rooted Samsung Galaxy S4 Active. And I bought it because I am a very outdoor guy and I skate, mountain bike and what not. The main reasons why I bought my device is because it's rugged. Unfortunately when I bought it, I was informed that it would support the slow motion capabilities of the original flaship device (Samsung Galaxy S4) Which is around 1/2 , 1/4 and 1/8 of the video speed.
Well my s4 active didn't support this feature and I was devastated. But upon searching about it, I knew that s4 active had the same exact 8 megapixel shooter as of the note 2 and s3. There were threads suggesting that the slow motion capabilities of note 2. (Yes, note 2 supports slow motion 1/2 1/4 and 1/8) can be ported to s3. And I've seen people do this and it supports the slow motion capabilities smoothly after the port.
Since S4 Active has the same camera as of s3 and note 2, I ported that camera2.apk of note 2 to my s4 active see if the slow motion could work as well. It did run, and although the screen resolution was different and the camera app displayed a smaller application display than normal, it did function. However the slow motion was bad. really bad compared to those of ported to s3 from note 2. I came to a conclusion that the bit rate of video. was weak on my phone. In case of hardware and software, the s4 active is way superior of that of s3 and I believe that the slow motion feature can be really ported to s4 active somehow. First in order to do that, we have to increase the bit rate of the s4 active's video to 30mbit/s as of that of note 2. It was similarly done to s3 and this is why it supported the slow motion. I don't know how to increase the mbit/s of the device. But there are multiple ways that people do. Many mods are there are for s3 which improves it's bit rate.
If there's a developer who could help out in porting slow motion from either note 3, ported s3 or even s4 to say the least, please please help? It would be really amazing if we could get slow motion for the s4 active.
