I have VMS12, upgraded to 16 but it crashes every few minutes. Just want my darn money back, but that's another story. Anyway, I have imported HQ video clips from my Samsung phone and when I put them on the timeline the audio portion is just a hair longer than the video portion. Does that ring a bell with anyone? Thanks in advance. Cin
Good to see you are still around and helping people Musicvid!! I downloaded that 3 times, but I can't find it anywhere on my computer! :0 I'll keep trying and let you know. Thanks as always. Cin
Edit: When I go into the Zip folder and double click on the icon, the black screen that has the command prompt shows up for literally a millisecond with about a line and a half of writing which I can't read before it disappears... :/

Video from a Samsung smartphone is always variable framerate. I succesfully edited once a video from my Samsung S8 by importing the Videoclips at projectsframerate. In your case that would mean you first have to setup a 1080p60 NTSC project and than import to that framerate.
If this method doesn't work with your clips, because the difference of your min and max framerate is quite large. You have to convert than your clips to constant framerate first before editing in VMS16, with a tool like Handbrake.
Nice to see you back as well; as far as being helpful, I've had had a major hearing loss with neuro involvement this year, so my former consistency is now just a WIP, as @vkmast can concur. Humor helps, along with patience and affirmation from dear friends, here on the forum and around the jungle.
Thank you 3Point for the reply. As Musicvid and some of the other older members know, I'm not the most tech savvy of people! I think I might understand your first suggestion. Couldn't I just match the media properties to get that to work? (which I think I did, but I'll double check) As for the second suggestion, I remember a lot of talk about Handbrake, but have never used it and it's probably too complicated for me, but I guess I could at least go to their website and look around.
Thank you as always Musicvid for your response, knowledge, and expertise. At the end of the day, does it really matter that the clips are a little off like that? Would it make a noticeable difference? Really sorry to hear about your health issues as I've come to realize that in the end, our health is all that really matters. I have a copy of Steve Jobs final letter on the subject and I try and start each day by reading it. I hope you have a better day, and thanks again. Cin
Edit: Here are my project settings. Are they correct and the ones I would want to use for best quality and results? The final destination is DVD. Thanks. Cin
is an easy to handle alternative for Handbrake, just drop your VFR clips on the interface with settings in red and the software makes decent CFR clips which you can edit in VMS16.
I just see that you want to make a DVD (losing lot of the hires quality of your recording). In that case I would set the project settings also to DVD, because a DVD is interlaced and not progressive. To make interlaced (i60) from progressive (p60) is no problem.
I'm trying really hard not to be dense, so please bear with me. So for a project you are better off setting it to the final format as opposed to working in it's native format and having it changed during rendering? Are these the proper settings in my picture for a good DVD? Should I have that 'Adjust source media to better....' checked? (not sure what it actually means) And finally, wouldn't I want my 'full resolution rendering quality' to be set to 'best' not 'good'? Who doesn't want their project to be the best!? Thank you. Cin

Your losing so much quality when downsampling from 1920x1080 (FHD) to 720x480 (SD) that all other quality settings probably make no sense. DVD is just a low quality storage medium from the 20th century, nowadays you can store so much better...
