Support HEVC and Linear FOV

Why Hero6 doesn't support hevc in 4k 30/25 fps video?

There are technical reasons or it is only a commercial decision?

There is the possibility that in a next firmware upgrade will be this improvement?

I do the same question for Linear FOV and 4K Video; there will be the possibility to apply Linear FOV to 4K video in a nexr firmware upgrade?

Re: Support HEVC and Linear FOV

HEVC can most certainly be used on all resolutions. However there is still limited playback and editing compatibility for many users. But it could have been an advanced setting in the menu system.


As for LINEAR FOV that's probably an hardware limitation. You could wish that the de-warping hardware section used for the image stabilizer could be used for LINEAR 4K but nope. Probably you will find this feature in the GP2 chip later on. For now all 4Kde-warping of fisheye effect must be done i post-production.
