GoPro video glitch

Hello! I recently bought Gopro Hero 6, this is my first camera from the production of Gopro.
And I was faced with such a problem: if I record a fairly long movie without stopping, then the video starts to tear, twitch. I attached a sample to the video. At first I considered a defective memory card or that it lacks speed, bought another - the same result. I thought that the files break when they are transferred to the computer, but no, from the GoPro screen the same result. In the attached video, the first video clip was written 10 minutes in 4k 30 (all settings are written in it). And this jerk appeared on 1:02 of the original video. Other fragments - from one video which was also written about 10 minutes in 2.7k 60fps. Glitches appeared sharply at 4:20 and continued throughout the entire video. And this is not an isolated case. I'm testing this camera for about 5 days - these bugs every time, but not in every video, if i record for 2-3 minutes - everything is perfect.
How to fix it?
Memory card: SAMSUNG microSDXC UHS-I PRO Plus 64gb
Firmware: v01.51

Re: GoPro video glitch

I'm going through the same problem. Here is my situation. I bought the first Hero 6 updated firmware to 1.51 camera started tearing and producing stuttering video after about 1 minute. it appears on any setting other than 1080p 60. I also though it was a memory card issue so I got another card...thought the problem went away but it didn't. I took the camera back and got a new one fearing that it was a defective camera. DID NOT upgrade the firmware this time and everything worked perfectly!! However, for my kind of videos I need to use an external microphone, when my adapter arrived it wouldn't work without updating the firmware to 1.51! So i took the chance and updated the firmware. BIG MISTAKE. This firmware has a problem and I'd love to see GoPro acknowledge this problem. Please keep us updated on what you find. Thank you!

Re: GoPro video glitch

hi @leshavnezakona,

 

@stmtrooperninja good to see you again mate....I wish we meet in more happy circumstances than reporting hero6 bugs

 

is the AutoLowLight enabled in your movies?

 

if yes, it is a "known" issue at 50/60 fps HEVC and AutoLowLight on

I'll post here also my response from dual/split screen discussion:

 

hope this helps a bit...... oh God...I wish GoPro release a new software update.... 

___________

hi all,

 

1. be careful with Auto Low Light (ALL) 

2. and this HEVC codec are very demanding for PC hardware and software

 

1. ALL

at 100/120fps if the auto low light is on, usually starts working.

meaning reduces the fps....

you have to have enough light to make 100. 120 fps footage

 

I made a test.

- in my office  2.7K 100fps and 120fps   Auto Low Light (ALL) enters when shoot { the sign is the ALL icon is light, not gray on display}, and the view finder and the footage are both choppy

- in same conditions, ALL off, no choppy video neither viewfinder, not on PC

 

another test with ALL on 2,7K 100fps

- in my office choppy, as I walk outside (sunny day) the choppy disappears both viewfinder and PC

- reappears as I reenter the office

 

2. HEVC play on PC  2.7K 100/120 (and 4K 60fps) are all HEVC (high-efficiency video codec)  (h.265) codecs

- at the beginning I installed the Windows codecs - Win Media Player was barely capable to play HEVC, is very choppy, sound and image are not sincronized

- I installed DivX - much better

- still keep in mind it is a hard task for both hardware and software to play such

 

!!!!!!!!! what annoys me is that Quik and Capture (for Win8.1 at least) are not capable to play/edit HEVC files, and I do not see the GoPro willingness  to upgrade Quik/Capture...the upgrade (ver 2.5 is available only for Win10)

 

thank you

robert

Re: GoPro video glitch

[ Edited ]

how careless can I be....

sorry guys.

@leshavnezakona  ofcourse you cannot be in Auto Low Light at 4K30fps... how dumb can you be robert?

maybe in 2.7K60fps

 

 

in this mode, 4K30fps Superview another issue is reported, that dreadful dual/split screen, that annoyed already us.

 

see the dual/split discussion....

 

the main is here:

GoPro Hero 6 v01.51, NTSC mode, 4K 30fps , Superview + different settings or not, give dual/split screen.

 

probably as you say in long video, some else can appear....

 

try the same in PAL  .... you will have 25fps....our tests show in 4K25fps Superview (PAL mode) at least the dual/split screen cannot be reproduced...

 

maybe the glitches are gone also?...

 

looking forward for you feedback.....and for a new firmware ....

 

robert
