This is a mod i have been using by quite some time, thought i should share it with other users of Moto x4. it's mostly made by @defcomg and i have only done xml and module part. you can see this has 4032x 2268 video support, it's very useful as you can record 2268p video and use google photos app's video stabilization on it to get stabilized 4k video.this produces much better 4k stabilized videos because you have 5% more resolution to work on compared to using it on normal 2160p video.



Features:

1: 2268p video mode for back camera.
2. 4k video mode for front camera.
3. 16mp mode front cam support for other camera apps.
4. Increased audio and video bitrate.
5. 1080p30/60fps hevc video support.


Requirements:

1: Magisk v16 or later.(so obviously it needs bootloader unlocked)
2: FreeDCam camera app play-store link


How to : -

1: Just install Enhance_MOTO_X4_camera.zip as a module in MagiskManager and reboot.
2: Open FreeDCam take a picture (so that it can create a freedcam folder otherwise you will get crashes in video mode) and follow attached screenshots to setup 2268p profile.

How does this compare to the various Gcam mods out there? Does this lose any features from the stock camera? Does it improve shutter speed?

So does this improve the moto camera or just provide a better alternative? Also is this mod just for video improvement or photos as well. The Moto X4 camera is very disappointing to say the least. I have been using a modded version of the GCam and it is much faster and better quality than the moto camera but features like the wide angle are sacrificed.

This is great! Trying to find a way to get less compression in photos, just installed and poking around!

can you share some 4k footage from the front camera with open camera app from the play store? see i'm trying to start a youtube channel and i want to record from open camera because of its amazing mono mode for the audio.. also share some images from arnova's gcam with front 16mp if u can.. i will highly appreciate it! ??

this mod doesn't remove anything, only adds the features stated in op.

can open camera app from the play store utilize the whole front 16mp after this mod? if yes then can you please share a sample footage with me? i really need to know this for my youtube channel but i'm skeptical on rooting just for testing out this one thing.. i'd really appreciate your help if you've got some time.. thanks! ??
