Is 12 mins the maximum video time?

We have a Gro Pro Hero Session and when we upload the media every video cuts off at 12 mins and then runs the remaining time into a seperate clip. Is there any way of extending the max time for a single clip? Running at 1080, Wide, 60fps.

 

Thanks

Re: Is 12 mins the maximum video time?

@epicwater07472 - As fishycomics mentioned, you can join those clips together when you're editing to create a longer video. What's happening is a function called chaptering, and it's designed to help protect your footage. You can find out more about it here: https://gopro.com/support/articles/gopro-camera-file-chaptering-information.

 

Thanks,

Jeff

Re: Is 12 mins the maximum video time?

It is due to  many reasons why restrictions and limits.     one major  change was a number of Years ago called Piracy, and a tax act that stopped most camera industries  as wll the computer with a FAT-32.   restricts t oa 30 minuted file .  what I remember years ago not  sure  anymore

 

 also the gopro hero 4 does 17 minutes per file at 4gb the  hero 4 is less why?????

 

Larger MBBS (quality) from 30 to 40-50mbbs you get LESS. a lot of info/pixals etc and causes a larger file making a shorter clip and  less time

 

 chaptering can be desabled. gopro  does not allow it
