@Arnova8G2
A thread was already created on Redmi 3S forum regarding this. But since this thread is linked to the original Mi5 thread, so I'm attaching camera info and reporting the problems again.

Problems:
1. Greenish photo when taking pictures with front cam in portrait mode.
2. App crash upon selecting Video mode.

@Arnova8G2
Device :: Xiaomi Redmi 3S/Prime (land)
ROM :: ResurrectionRemix Unofficial (Nougat)
Kernel :: Beacon Kernel
Mod Version :: GCam5.1.018-Arnova8G2-V1.4

Portrait mode is working fine on rear camera.
But portrait mode for front cam is not working, Camera doesn't take picture while using portrait. And without portrait mode, Front camera does take picture.
On previous version (1.3), Front cam was able to take pictures in portrait mode but had a green tint all over the image!

Video recording is not working (on both cam).

Test build updated by Arnova8G2, version 1.5 beta.

Download link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1S9oggPsVDm44nJW_ZjSXuSqS4FXqBOUi/view

Original thread link: https://forum.xda-developers.com/mi-5/themes/app-collection-camera-modded-t3591177/page202

Changes that I've seen:
Video is now WORKING fine on both cameras.
Motion photo option (which was not working before) is now removed.
HDR control is not showing up for the front cam. It's fine on back cam.
Front portrait pictures are still greenish.
Can't say if this version is working on Android 8.1 or not, because I'm on 7.1.2.

I also believe this is really a biggest concern as it has stopped many r3s user in nougat. I also want to use 8.1 but can't use due to this problem. This gcam mode has been a really high end thing in this budget device.

Yeah but I guess (and also heard) that is our device issue in 8.1 where HAL3 is not yet properly implemented so enabling Camera2API has no effect (which is needed for GCam to work)... Im not sure about it but if it is the caes then We have to wait for Our Developers to fix this...

Are you on Oreo 8.1?
If yes, then please download "Manual Camera Compatibility Test" app from Play Store. This app will show if Camera2API is working properly or not.

In latest GCam mod 1.5 beta 2 Portait mode is working much better in front camera. Picture is less greenish in good light but still it is green. Portait mode only works if you enable the hdr plus front camera in advance menu option.

Which rom you are in?

---------- Post added at 09:09 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:05 PM ----------

Can anyone here explain me why this mod is not working for me?
I am on AEX 4.6 modify by jar
I purposely installed this rom to experience the portrait mode

I have just installed the apk of that mod.
Do i need to do some more steps (i.e. edit in build.prop and add some files to root folder except enabling camera2 api)

Please reply and help me!

I am on viper 3.1.1 and did not use AEX so can't say about it. You just have to enable camera 2api via magisk module or build prop. You dont need to do more than this. The mod will work only on Naugat or 8.0 oreo. I am waiting for a fix in 8.1 as this is not working in it.

Check if camera 2api is properly activated. Use open camera and tick ✅ the camera 2api option in setting and check if iso and shutter speed is adjustable or not. If yes, then camera 2api is ok and the problem may be in rom. And if not, then flash the camera 2api magisk module rather than editing the build prop.
