How to improve Quik Desktop export quality?

Recently picked up a Hero7 Black (first GoPro) and the export quality of Quik seems terrible. Recorded footage in 1080p60.

 

The 30s Quik video is only 56mb (bitrate 13866kbps).

 

A 30s Vegas export test is 300mb (51865kbps).

 

The difference below is obvious. Is there any way to improve Quik? Would love to use it, if possible.

 

I'm running a custom built Win10 machine (roughly 4 years old) with an i5, GTX 770, 16 GB RAM, SSD. However, I would expect my PC specs should not affect the quality of the export, just the amount of time the render takes.

 

Would mobile be better? Should I try on my 2018 MacBook Pro? iPhone?

 

Thanks!

Re: How to improve Quik Desktop export quality?

Hello @hardysand06424

 

Thank you for the feedback. We will bring this matter to our Desktop app team. It would be good to try other devices with other applications to determine which path will provide the best quality output. You may also explore other programs to view and edit your content.
