7black Hyperlapse footage look low res

Love my 7 black but I've found that if I add any hyperlapse clips into my quik edits (desktop or mobile) The quality drops a lot just on those parts when I upload it anywhere.

Anyone any ideas why?
Thanks

Re: 7black Hyperlapse footage look low res

This is a 1080p video I recorded yesterday with my family.  I think it looks pretty good (Be sure the playback is at 1080p/60fps).

My settings were:

1080p/24fps

Hypersmooth Stabilization: On

Protune: On

Shutter: Auto

EV: -0.5

ISO MIN 100

ISO MAX 800

WB: Auto

Sharpness: Medium

Color: GoPro

About Midway through is a timelaps video at 1080p.  I don't see a significant drop in quality.

Forgot to say I'm recording everything at 1080p

Re: 7black Hyperlapse footage look low res

There can be a bit of softening, but not much. What are your settings? Are you using Protune? Also, on the Quik Mobile app, be sure to go into settings and select to save as high resolution and 1080p/60fps.

Re: 7black Hyperlapse footage look low res

To improve quality of TimeWarp, use a higher resolution like 4k.

Re: 7black Hyperlapse footage look low res

That vid looks good quality.

Here's mine. I have pro tune on. But I can't process 4k video so can't upgrade the res.
The video looks fine on my phone (s7) it just goes to crap when uploaded. But only on the time lapse bits which is weird.

Re: 7black Hyperlapse footage look low res

The highest resolution I could choose for playback was 720p, so maybe it has something to do with that. Go into the settings in Quik (mobile app) and make sure you have the highest quality and 1080p/60fps selected.

Re: 7black Hyperlapse footage look low res

Ok. Looks like i didn't have the settings in the app right. But also the upload setting in the YouTube app on my phone didn't have HD enabled.

It has 1080p 60fps available for me now and looks fine. So thanks for sharing your settings Daniel.

It does seem there is a similar setting for Facebook were you have to enable HD uploading but so far I'm still getting awful quality on time warp footage. But i guess that's a Facebook issue.
