Re: Hero 7 footage upside down when editing in Adobe Premiere CC

I have the hero 7 black and it's done the same thing every time I play back my video it is upside down if I record upside down... It's a firmware issue because I have returned my GoPro 7 black back to exchange it for another one and when I got my new one I recorded it upside down the video and then play back was still upside down

Re: Hero 7 footage upside down when editing in Adobe Premiere CC

What were your camera seetings, orientation set to Down or Auto?

 

Are you also in Premiere?

Re: Hero 7 footage upside down when editing in Adobe Premiere CC

hi all,

to me, it is a feature.

 

in short when upside down

- h7 will save it upside down with Metadata Rotation: 180.

- h6 will save it normal orientation, without Rotation Metadata, as if it was filmed normally

 

 

if the player/editing software is capable to read the metadata "Rotation: 180" and correct the orientation automatically, we are good to go.

if not, we are in the situation described.....

 

I'm sure every editing software have something related to the Metadata Rotation...can you check?

 

I made a test:

- video normal and upside down with h6 and h7

- all four are played with the right orientation by:

.... Windows Media Player

.... DivX player

.... Movies&TV - the default Win10 player 

.... iPhone

.... edited iMovie, saved, etc....

 

in metadata, can be seen opened in DivX...menu File > Show Video Information > Extended data....look below Video section, Display aspect ratio...you will find or not Rotation.

 

in one case, h7 filmed upside down, there is a field Rotation: 180

not present in h6 filmed upside down, so indeed @phil314 is right, the video filmed upside down in h6, is saved "normal" (as it was upside up".

 

h6 - filmed normal, no Rotation Metadata
