I've been having this issue for a while editing videos shot on a google pixel.

The problem is, the smartphone uses variable framerate and that results in a strange "skip" at the beginning of the clips. This happens even on render. So I currently have no way around it other than converting footage in compressor first.

Here is a sample of the "skipping" issue:

This isn't the original footage is it? Could you post the original file, or a small test?

Tom, let me send you the original file.

I failed to mention that I am on the newest version of FCPX and I'm using a 13" retina MacBook pro from 2014.

The bump at the beginning that looks like a camera shake? Every clip has this? Compressor removes it?

Tom, rewatch the first clip I posted and notice when he says "so by far" it skips over the audio as if it's trying to catch up or something.
