I set the camera, nowadays I actually use an iPhone, play one instrument,
one take, one video file. Pick up the next instrument, same camera, one
take. And so on. Yes, there is an issue with iPhone deciding itself between
24 and 30 fps depending on lighting. So it's important to use enough
lighting for all recordings. For my next project I will buy an app that
will lock the frame rate.
In any case, it has still been an issue with the waveforms and actually
audio in Kdenlive even with the same camera and same frame rate for all
video files.
