Re: Hero 6 is dropping frames! HUGE issue!

I think this is more an issue with the camera itself because the same thing happens to me just playing footage back on my phone when downloaded from the camera, or even viewing on the camera itself. It clearly misses frames at 24fps, and looks incredibly laggy and choppy. Don't get the same issue at higher frame rates.

Re: Hero 6 is dropping frames! HUGE issue!

Hmm, not sure why that's happening to you. I just filmed a sunset last night with my Hero6 in my Karma drone at 4K/24fps. Looking through the footage and I can't find any dropped frames. Cars passing by below and all movement is fluid and smooth. Stepping through frame by frame and so far it looks fine.

Not that I'm saying it's a SD card issue, but just FYI, I'm using a Samsung Pro+.

I'd be surprised if this was an SD card issue. I'm using a Sandisk Extreme Plus - up to 100MB/s read/ 90MB/s write, Class 10, U3, V30, A1.

It's not an After Effects issue.  It happens in VLC, windows media player, and premier as well.  The missing frame is just not in the file. This is a problem on GoPro's end for sure.

Did you have protune and stabilization turned on?  Were you in superview mode?

Re: Hero 6 is dropping frames! HUGE issue!

I would have had protune and stabilisation on yes. I switch between modes and as far as i'm aware this happens on all of them.

 

The worrying thing is that obviously this is noticeable at 24fps because a missed frame at lower frame rates can be seen a mile off. I mentioned that at 60fps etc it doesn't happen but I am concerned it IS happening but maybe just isn't being noticed because the frame rate even with missing frames makes it undetectable? This would be a problem of course if you slowed the footage down!

Has this been address in the new firmware at all?  Has Gopro made a statement about not being able to use 24fps???

Re: Hero 6 is dropping frames! HUGE issue!

Just got done doing some extensive filming for a client. Going through the footage I see no dropped frames.
