Imported Footage Truncated on Hero 9 Black / GoPro Quick

[ New ]

When importing files from my Hero 9 Black into GoPro Quick, the length of footage is capped at exactly 11:47.  For any video that exceeds that length, GoPro Quick only imports the first 11:47, and leaves the remainder of the video on the GoPro storage media without importing it.

 

Has anyone else experienced something similar (and knows what's going on here)?

 

I can view the full footage by mounting the SD card as a storage volume and opening the file, so I'm not sure why GoPro quick cuts it off at exactly that duration.

GoPro files are capped at 4GB in size.  This is called Chaptering and it's done to protect your footage from damage in the case of a power loss or other incident.  Once a file exceeds 4GB, the file is closed and a new file is created.  you can then join these files together to make one seamless clip in any good video editor.
