Do you have problem with motion photos from rear camera also, on your G Pixel?

@Charles_l and guys just want to ask you something before to kill me with stones! :)

I know this is dedicated Nexus subforum and i already use the Gcam ports floating the XDA thanks to Charles of course!

But one question keep floating in my head any chance to make this port working on non nexus devices? such as HTC 10 Nougat or Oreo?

What i have to edit... now you gotta wonder why im asking such a question when the Forum is full with ports for other devices.

Well because HTC 10 have exact the same camera Sensor like Nexus 6P and this is the SONY IMX 377.

In other words the Original Google Camera profile of the Nexus 6P and the HDR+ calculating have to be optimized for exact that camera Lense SONY IMX 377 like color corection, quality and so on.

And in Theory if i run this Google Camera on HTC 10 i will get best results like Image quality, colors and processing.

Using the Nexus 6P model and Nexus 6P HDR+ Processing.

Any Idea?

Thanks in advance
You should try arnova Google camera, he make the port of Google camera for HTC, Moto as well as Xiaomi. Go and have a try...

No motion photos on my Original Pixel XL (neither back nor front).

Edit

Ok looks like installed enhanced version and got the motion photos

Edit 2

As someone else is mentioned it before, motion photos doesn't work with front camera.
Using original Pixel XL

Thanks

For those of you using NX primarily for the portrait mode shots, this app is a godsend. It runs in the background or can be used manually to bulk move all the burst folders made by the portrait mode to your camera folder. The paid version is only a buck and will delete the old folders when it moves. I stopped using NX for portrait mode because of the mess it made of my storage, but this app makes it work as you'd expect.

Interesting app, wish it gave a better idea of what folders to move to and from though

Any advice on how to set it up?

Why should you worry how messy is inside gallery folder? It will be cleared out the moment you hit Free up space in Google photos.

Nope. It makes a folder for every burst that stays on your storage

I didn't set anything up, after reboot it just works, moving all the files behind the scenes.

Portrait mod doesn't seem to work on lineage os 15.1...latest nightly...what might be the issue ??
I can see portrait mod option but, rear cam just takes burst image and front can will not take anything when in portrait mod.
Was working well on stock though
What might be causing this ?
What am I missing ?

Everything works perfectly on mine; LOS 15.1.
Might be an issue with your GApps. Try OpenGApps 8.1

Did I mention about front cam ? Really u think I'll take pics of objects with front cam:silly::D
I've been using portrait mod when I was on stock and it worked flawlessly (of course not with objects) because we don't have a pixel.
But now something else is messed up and I can't find what it is .

    Hello N6P users, I succeed in getting the ZSL HDR+ works on Nexus 5X, as Nexus 6P has the same camera hardware and better SoC, I'd like to ask someone test my mod, to see if the function works.

    What's ZSL HDR+?
    ZSL = zero shooting lag, means you won't get camera freeze after taking a HDR+ auto shoot. it is build-in the Google Camera 4.2 and only works on Pixel phones, now I force the app using Pixel configuration, it should perform the same ZSL HDR+ shooting on Nexus 6P.
    Details about the ZSL HDR+.

    ZSL-enhanced For 8.0+ only, ZSL HDR+ For 7.1.1+ only, Android 7.0 users please use NoZSL version.
    APK was signed by ZipSign using my own signature, it won't replace your default camera app, it will install as a normal app, with a different camera icon.

    Last Update

    03/24/2018 V7.4
    Base on Google Camera 5.2
    1. Bring back HDR+ on Nexus 5X/6P.
    2. Add Lens Blur mode.
    3. EIS should be back to normal on Pixel 1, as EIS will be disabled with 4K quality with official version.
    4. Active Google photos combination to view results again on enhanced version.
    Details and download link for V7.4

    01/02/2018 V7.3.1
    Bug fix version
    1. Fix abort HDR+ process FC problem.
    2. Fix viewfinder flickering issue.
    3. Add ZSL version for Android 7.1+, the previous one should be ZSL-enhanced version.
    Bugs:
    1. smart-burst always mark the first photo (ZSL-enhanced version).
    2. Autofocus won't work after manually focus, need lock then unlock the AF/AE lock.

    12/31/2017 V7.3
    Current the new version is only for Android 8.0+, will release the updated version for Android 7.0.
    1. Add the most wanted feature, Portrait mode (use Pixel 2's front lens software method, it needs a human face shows up to work.).
    2. Remove silence feedback service, crash report service, and the broken Help menu, for faster app launch.
    3. Remove Google photos combination, motion photo still works but you need to view it through Google photos manually.
    I have named it wrong and this one should be the ZSL-enhanced version, sorry for the wrong package errors on Android 7.1.2 :eek:
    Details and download link for V7.3.1


    11/06/2017 V7.2.0
    This is bug fix version, not only for Pixel 2016, everyone who is using enhanced version should grab this update.
    1. Fix crash issue on Pixel 2016.
    2. Fix provider author name mistake leads to a thumbnail generation issue.
    3. Motion pictures should be saved with a file name "MVIMG-####-##" right now, it became "IMG-####-##" in V7.1 version, which was wrong, this might mess the G photos when index media files.
    Enhanced version users should get the experimental2017 library now.
    Sorry, after some more test it seems experimental2017 is not necessary, just install the new version it will be ok.
    About the Lens photo editor, it will be available after the picture upload to Google cloud.

    10/19/2017 V7.1.0
    1. Based on the last Google Camera 5.1.014, add Pixel 2016 phones support (need test).
    2. Video 60FPS mode with EIS FC bug Fixed.
    3. Motion photos for Pixel 2016 phones.
    4. Micro video (Motion photos) EIS use gyro sensor enabled for Pixel (it was only activated on Pixel XL), need feedback.
    5. Update icon support adapted icon and regular icon.
    6. Disable Motion photos and G-photo integration for Android 7.1.
    -- Now there is a new ZSL-enhanced version for Motion photos, G-photos combine, diet smart-burst on Android 8.x.
    -- NOZSL and ZSL version will perform the old way while added new face retouching.
    -- Bugs: after shooting photos, review it and you will see a black screen, need to wait for HDR+ process, I don't know it is normal or just hardware limited.

    So I tried this out for the first time recently on my 6P, and there was one issue that kept me from leaving my stock Google Camera app for this one. In the stock app when I take an HDR picture, I can see the picture as it's being processed. In this app I only see black until the processing is complete. When taking multiple pictures the problem is exacerbated, naturally, as I find myself staring at numerous black screens for quite a while as they each process.

    Is this the behavior of the app on Pixel devices, or is it just how the modded APK performs on non-Pixel devices like the 6P?

    Black screen bug could be fixed with a complicated method, which I don't suggest, it needs platform signature for the app to wake up google photo service.

    New version V7.3 won't have that issue as it disabled G-photos combination. get it here.

    Sorry for let you guys wait for a long time, Gcam 5.3 drops support for Nexus phones totally(HDR+ profile, common functions), I managed to make it works only in limited JPEG mode, but things does not go through with old method.

    Now I have a thought that maybe it will work with Pie, as custom Pie rom for Nexus 5X was out, I will give it a try.
