Re: Hero7 Black panning jittery with Gimbal

is it off the actual card or on the HDD when playing back?

Re: Hero7 Black panning jittery with Gimbal

Thank you, @darsenator. We are looking forward to an update from you. Also check out if from where and how the videos are played back will matter as @fishycomics suggested. You may also test play the videos through the GoPro app on mobile. Best regards!

Re: Hero7 Black panning jittery with Gimbal

Hi @mariustanya

 

Just thought I'd provide a public-Dropbox link which shows the original footage (I think YouTube tends to re-render the files when they're uploaded is that correct ?), so I wanted to instead provide an un-edit video footage.

 

The jittering is very apparent between the 09-14 seconds timeframe.

The up and down bobbing is just me not rolling my feet and instead just walking normally (so that I understand is something that neither EIS nor Gimbal can fix).

 

The video is about 00:02.35 minutes in total time lenght and file size is 1.09GB

 

Below is the link

 

https://www.dropbox.com/s/kxs1rxo8fqyagtc/GH010945.MP4?dl=0

 

I'll go ahead and provide some more samples soon (now that daylight is out)

Will also try playing it via the GP app on the phone (iPhone 8).

Re: Hero7 Black panning jittery with Gimbal

The playback is done via hdd on pc (SSD drive).

 

I'll see how the video looks when played via the GP app on mobile phone (iPhone 8).

Re: Hero7 Black panning jittery with Gimbal

Ok folks...

 

I've just finished uploading the file to both DropBox and YouTube.

 

https://youtu.be/Nd4mcjjcMZw

Specs for video are as below.

Enjoy the videos and music you love, upload original content, and share it all with friends, family, and the world on YouTube.

Re: Hero7 Black panning jittery with Gimbal

Hi All,

Just an update...after much experimenting and process of elimination it began to occur to me that perhaps the issue has 'NOT' been with the GoPro camera but perhaps the computer(s), this is in relation to the replies where I was asked if the issue occurred when playing via phone....this is kind of when the light bulb turned on!!

I realised the footage looked smooth on [YouTube] but choppy/jittery via the computer(s) and the common denominator was [VLC media player] whereas using [Windows Media Player] did not replicate the problem.

So, what I did was reset VLC to defaults and bingo!

I now have smooth footage.

(The color does look flat but that's because I want to use post-video processing as opposed to using GoPro color where the color is harder to modify), I'm learning to use 'Davinci Resolve' (which in itself is a beast of a program but learning is half the fun).

The pc I have at work is much faster with a Nvidia Graphics card,32Gb System ram with very fast HDDs.

I do recall having issues viewing 4K videos on my home pc as opposed to the work pc where it plays the files with no issues.

So, there you go....I don't regret getting the Gimbal cause I know it'll serve its purpose given the right conditions....if anything I'm relieved (bit embarrassed that the issue all along was VLC or at least a setting within it).

This has certainly resulted in a steep learning curve.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to view and respond to this thread and hopefully if this can help someone out one day who may be having a similar issue.
