How to re-assemble chapters into a single continuous video?

So GoPro MUST breakup a long video into "chapters" (ex. 4GB chapters in Hero7 Black). Fine. How do I re-assemble the chapters into a single, longer video in either GoPro Quick of Fusion Studeo?

In https://gopro.com/help/articles/question_answer/GoPro-Camera-File-Chaptering-Information the "solution" seems to suggest that re-assembling the chapters is quick and easy. So far, with a bunch of searching, I have found it impossible.

You need a proper video editor.  Quik is designed to take small parts of clips and sync to music.  This will not help yo accomplish what you want.  Fusion Studio is for stitching 360 spherical videos, again, not what you want.

 

Here are some free options from simplest with the least amount of options to a full blown professional video editor.

 

If you have Windows, the built in video editor is simple and should work in most cases 

If you have a Mac, then iMovie works well

 

If your computer is not very powerful (video editing is some of the most stressful (for the computer) processing you can do), then VideoProc will customize itself to match your system resources.

 

VSDC video editor is a program designed to work seamlessly with GoPro HEVC video

 

DaVinci Resolve is a professional editor that is used by Hollywood to make movies.  It can seem complex at first, but after watching a few "how to" videos on YouTube, you should be able to figure out the basics enough to create your own videos.

 

Other free video editors are:

Thanks. I have downloaded VSDC and, while it is not intuitive, I have slogged through it with the help of some YouTube videos. I've figured out how to stitch multiple videos into one long one. And it works well, but it takes soooooo long.

Re: How to re-assemble chapters into a single continuous video?

Glad you got it worked out. I've only briefly tested VSDC (I primarily have used Adobe Premiere Pro) but you should be able to select all of your media and then just drop it onto the timeline. If not, I highly suggest trying DaVinci Resolve. I've been doing a lot of editing with their free program lately (Beta 16.1), and while the advanced features can be a little overwhelming to learn for someone who doesn't have experience with non-linear video editors, the Cut page is very simple. You just grab your clips, drop them into the workspace and then export the video (this can all be done from the one workspace). If course, if you decide to venture more into the program, it's more than worth it, as it's one of the best, and most powerful, professional video editors available (at any price).
