comment How do I convert 120FPS video from the iPhone 5s to 60FPS?
iMovie 2013 doesn't let you choose the frame rate to save at. That was part of the "Export using QuickTime" option that was removed. You can see the screenshot at itunes.apple.com/in/app/imovie/id408981434?mt=12&ls=1

comment How do I convert 120FPS video from the iPhone 5s to 60FPS?
What I'm looking for is a 1-minute 120FPS clip to end up as a 2-minute 60FPS clip. Things would happen at half the speed as they do in real life. "Export using QuickTime" has been removed in iMove 10. I doubt iMovie on iOS would work when the Mac version doesn't. If anything, the former is likely to have fewer options.

@bmike thanks for your help. Robuust, let's agree to disagree, and focus on the question itself.

comment I'm prompted on every reboot for a password for a stale iCloud account
Sorry, I seemed to have dropped the ball on this. The problem seems to have disappeared, maybe with the 10.9.1 or .2 updates. I no longer get the prompts, and old@gmail.com is no longer in the plist file. Thanks for your help, Graham.

Sorry for the late reply (I think I missed your comment earlier). Yes, everything is set up correctly there. old@gmail.com is not listed.

@Robuust The iPhone 5s can't shoot video at 60FPS. Besides, I want video that's slowed down twice, as I said. Even if the iPhone could shoot at 60FPS, that video would run at 100% speed, which is not what I'm looking for.

... or by saying that I prefer tools that run ONLY on the command-line, because that implies tools that can be invoked from the command-line AND via a GUI are okay. That's not what I asked.

@Bmike, please don't edit the question in a way that changes the meaning for example, by saying that I'm looking for an app that does this one task well.

comment What's a good long-exposure app for the iPhone?
I agree, Samoth, but it seems that that's the best possible on iOS for now.

comment How can I upload all photos from a burst on the iPhone?
Thanks, but I don't use iCloud services when I can avoid the, due to the Apple lock-in. Doesn't iOS let apps access all the photos in a burst? Or does it let them know only of the favorite photos?

comment How do I backup my iPhoto library to Dropbox or to an external disk?
The stack exchange FAQ says not to post on multiple SE sites and to instead ask moderators to move it over. Since it has been 10 hours, I'll assume your done with your meeting :) and wait till you have the time to look into this. Let me know if you want me to flag this for other moderators' attention. Thanks.

Fair points. Could one of you please move this to Ask Different?

comment How do I erase an SD card before giving it away?
Thanks. John or any other mods, can you please move this to Ask Different. I use a Mac, so I'd prefer moving this to Ask Different than to Super User. Steven, it's not that critical, and I'm not guarding it against the NSA, just against casual snoops. James, are you saying that if I just do an erase, the data is still physically stored on the device? Thanks.

Are you sure? That's how hard discs work, but not solid state storage -- you need to do an erase before doing a write. You can't overwrite, which you seem to be thinking of. To put it differently, if you were right, then there'd be no need for an erase operation, which is obviously not the case.

comment How do I erase an SD card before giving it away?
James, maybe I'm missing your point, but I meant to say that if I zero out a block, I am doing an erase followed by a write. When the new owner does a write, that's another erase followed by a write. This is a total of two erase + write cycles. Whereas if I could just do an erase and give away the card, and the new owner does a write, that's just one write. It would mean two erases, though, unless the controller is smart enough to make the second one a noop.
