I have been noticing that my videos are stuttering when the drone is in motion, either when rotating or when flying sideways by objects.  I have read that this could be caused by frame rate or other incompatibilities, but I want to make sure that my drone is not defective.  This is my first drone, so I have little experience with all of this. This video attached shows what I am talking about.  It was shot at 4K30.  Please let me know what you think.

No studdering on my side at all watching the video. The movement is absolutely smooth.
I would suggest you check the system you're watching the video on for overload. Here I see 14% GPU load for video decoding. But this is a RTX 3090 which is near top notch video card that a consumer PC will have these days. If your video decoding stresses the GPU or CPU significantly you will encounter studdering. Especially if you choose H.265 coding your machine has a heap of work to do for realtime playback.

OK, well that's good to know!  I have noticed stuttering on all playback devices that I have.  So, I suppose graphic card upgrade is in order...  Thanks for viewing!

I concur with the reponse of SeehawerB. No jitter at all. Smooth and steady. That's on my fairly elderly laptop too.  Sound like you need a GPU upgrade For the time being, you could try filming at a lower resolution.  !920x1080  for example.

Thank you for weighing in!  At least the drone is working properly!  I guess my computer could use some help though!

That's about the size of it
It's a great little drone.

I viewed your video on a high end gaming laptop and I'm not seeing any stuttering or jitter in the video.  I would say your drone is not the issue.  Most probably related to a CPU or GPU on your PC or laptop.

The only "issue" I see is in the clouds, the jump every 1s. That's just the keyframe doing its normal thing.

Can you elaborate on this?  I'm new here...

The jump you see in the clouds is the result of a 1-second keyframe. There's just not enough detail in that area to prevent it being so obvious. Annoying, but normal.

HI there. Thank you for reaching out. I was able to check the video that you posted and it seems that the video doesn't have any issues at all and it looks awesome. Kindly please try to use a different media player or might as well a different PC that has a much higher specification and provides us the timestamp where the issue occurs. Thank you for your valued support.

The video was fine for me however i have serious stuttering issue and have and RTX 3090 and AMD 5900x and running the studio version of resolve. The clouds do have the "key frame issue" which i consider an issue because my canon R3 never would do this. I think i have to realise my drone will suffer from stuttering and the cloud issue because of the compression. For me it's and issue but i also understand that it's not an $8000 Canon R3 which lets you choose your compression. Dissapointing but also understandable as the Mini 3 pro is tiny and writes to SD card.
