GoPro Quik doesn't recognize GoPro Max 360 files!

[ New ]

Hello everybody,

 

I just bought a GoPro Max and shoot a 360 video today but after uploading the 360 files on a folder located on my Laptop's hard drive, GoPro Quik was unable to recognize those files (that very folder is empty for Quik). So, here's my question: do I always have to use GoPro Max Exporter to transcode the videos (it takes an age even on my Dell XPS 15 I7 32Gb RAM) or there is a way to edit the 360 files straight for camera with Quik (NOT Adobe Premiere)?

 

Thank you in advance,

Marco

GoPro MAX is a great 360 camera. But the workflow is not so great. In this video I discuss the way I import and export the 360 videos. In short,- only way to...

Hello,

 

thank you so much for your reply. Apparently, the GoPro player app is only available for Mac OS and it's a shame that you can reframe a GoPro Max video with an Android cell phone or tablet and NOT on a Windows laptop or desktop without subscribing a Creative Cloud membership plan (taking advantage of the Premiere and AE reframe plugin).

 

Cheers,

Marco
