I'm a total novice, first video, take it easy on me. I'm trying to figure out why the footage skips on my DSLR. It's clearly not skipping when I use my drone. I recorded at 1080p 30fps with ISO 800, F5.6, shutter speed of 1/60th. It was a handheld pan using a basic non-weighted stabilizer.
Fast-forward to the 00:30sec mark and you'll see the frames jump during this scene. This was rendered to H.264 in premiere pro cs6. Sequences matched. Shot and exported at 29.97 fps at 1080p, max bit depth, NTSC, Profile High, Level 5.1, VBR 2 pass, Target and Max bit rate at 300mbps (!), keyframe distance 1. With these settings, I got much better color quality and less artifact/noise. When I exported at YouTube's recommended bit rate, I got terrible noise and artifacts.
I just tried a test using a different lens and 1080p 24fps and I get the same skipping while panning. So it's either my body or the software settings.
