Re: Fusion overheating issue

I'm shooting video with protune running.  Depending on the tempurature, I may or not have an overheating problem and if I'm shooting at room temp, I close all doors.  If in a hot situation where overheating is a big problem, I remove the battery and run with external USB3 power, or allow cooling between sessions.  Using black gaff tape you can hide the powerline out of sight for stitching and record continuously.  The external battery needs to have 2a or more at 5v.

Re: Fusion overheating issue

I have also been running my Fusion with an EasyAcc Power bank, the battery removed and the door partially open to breathe otherwise is overheats and crashes...just like the Heros do too if they get hot.

 

my USB C cable is not the 90 degree angle type, but even curving it down to the tripod base it does not show on the lenses, nor does the partially open battery door. I did shoot once with battery out and door closed and the camera overheated.

 

As for recording times, I did shoot a 3 hour continuous clip, but that was a huge error, since the three hour clip WON'T LOAD in Fusion Studio, (I have succedded in getting a 1.5 hour clip to load and render) and when I tried separating into two 1.5 hour folders, the Fusion Studio app WON'T recognize the last 1.5 hours of footage!!!!!!!!!

 

Does anyone know a workaround for just loading the second half of the segmented clips?

 

I am guessing the first clip recorded contains metadata to inform the merging of all clips from the entire take before stitching...Any suggestions?

Re: Fusion overheating issue

Hi @carnavalpix .. Sorry to heat that you faced a problem in your recorded video. I hope someone can help you to recover it. I suggest to contact GoPro suport. They may able to help to recover it. I think this issue is due to the overheating.

 

We need to find away to push/rotate the air inside the camera to reduce the heat in the camera. I am thinking to use micro fan as a replacement of the internal battery similiar to the one shown in the below link. Other idea is to insert mini pipe to vacumm or blow in the place of interenal battery.

 

I believe that the overheating problem is related to Fusion design error. GoPro should find away to adapt heat sink attahed to outside surface to release the camera heat.
