GPS Telemetry and Big Files

I'm attempting to put together a 12 mile bike ride that has a complete GPS telemetry map. I was recording in 4K and noticed only afterwards, the video is split up into 4 parts. Thus having 4 separate GPS map parts for the one I'm trying create.

 

Would recording in 1080 or 960 solve this? The ride would be around 40 minutes long.

Re: GPS Telemetry and Big Files

Great Question @royalpeak3551.

Since you filmed in 4K the film size is larger than 4GB like @no66 said,

this is due to the maximum file size, recording in 1080p, or

720p will help keep it one file.

No, the file system has a 4 gb size limit. That its why it is split

Re: GPS Telemetry and Big Files

Is it not possible to combine to 4K files into one and have the GPS data stay intact? if so, how?

If not so, why not? ;)

Re: GPS Telemetry and Big Files

I think you can do this in Dashware www.dashware.net

You can merge gps files etc. I haven't had time to test and play much with it, but it can be done.
