Horizon level on the GoPro Quick Desktop app.

So horizon leveling is something I wished for in the Hero 8 and kinda got it through the app. I currently have windows 7 and can't install the quick app for desktop. Can somebody tell me if the horizon level is/will be present in the quick desktop app. Will we be able to export footage in ProRes or ither lossless format like with the GoPro MAX app?

Re: Horizon level on the GoPro Quick Desktop app.

Very doubtful that it will be in the Desktop app. The Quik desktop app isn't really a full fledged editor. It's just a way to make short little clips synced to music. The Auto leveling is in the GoPro mobile app (which can be used as a proper editor if you take the time to learn it).

If you want an editor that can export in high resolution lossless formats, you will need a professional non-linear editor. DaVinci Resolve is a free professional editor and can export in DNxHD. Both ProRes and DNxHD are effectively “visually lossless” at their higher bitrates.

Re: Horizon level on the GoPro Quick Desktop app.

Please note that although not officially advertised by Microsoft anymore, you can still upgrade your PC to Windows 10 for free.  That way you can use the latest software that's compatible with Windows 10.  You can find lots of info on how to do this online and it's still working, I upgraded my old workstation last week to Win 10 and will be installing DaVinci Resolve and Quik on it as a result.
